Careys Secret Garden: Go on a bear hunt

Bring the magic back into reading!

Go on a Bear Hunt event at Careys Secrect Garden in Wareham with acclaimed children’s author Sarah Lean

The Good Bear by Sarah Lean has been awarded the title of WATERSTONES CHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE MONTH.  We are super excited to have Sarah visiting Carey’s Secret Garden to run the next event in our ‘Nurture with Nature’ workshops, as well as kickstarting our very own Carey’s Secret Garden Secret Book Club.

If you want to encourage a love and passion for reading, and a desire to write, then Sarah will do this by the bucket load! There is nothing more inspiring than for children to meet the author of their new favourite book, and Sarah has kindly agreed to share her top writing tips and speak more about writing The Good Bear in this interactive talk. Children will then have the opportunity to ask her any questions in person.
We also want you to enjoy the fantastic space at Carey’s Secret Garden during the event, so join Sarah on a fun ‘find the bear’ hunt amongst the flora. There will also be an opportunity to purchase your personally signed copy of the book.

Why not arrive early for the workshop and have some lunch from our Secret Salt Pig Cafe on site and explore the gardens further.
This workshop is part of our ‘Nurture with Nature’ children’s workshops which run every month, each focusing on a different aspect of nature… taking everyone back to their roots.

What to bring:
Warm clothes and wellies as this workshop will be run inside the reclaimed barn and outside within the walled garden.  All your child needs to bring is themselves, their questions for Sarah, their imagination and writer’s inspiration!

Any additional notes: 
Children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the duration of the workshop and whilst in the garden.
If for any reason the event could not run due to unforeseen circumstances, no refunds will be given but the workshop would instead be postponed to Saturday 12th February 2022.

£15.00 ticket includes accompanying adult
