Jane sent me a lovely email asking me to let you know about the Alton Teddy Bear Festival which will be on Saturday 22nd June from 10am to 4pm at the Alton Assembly Rooms…
This is the first year of operating the event and we are hoping for great things.
The event will have the feel of a summer fete, family event, Bear Festival to ensure that there is a large and varied range of clientele. We are planning to have a bear restoration team at the event, a second hand bear adoption agency, story time and individual make & take workshops for adults and children, amongst many other stands with dedicated bear designers and makers.
We are also very fortunate to have Paddington Bear attend the event to celebrate his birthday with us. He will be attending as part of the Medical Active Research charity (www.action.org.uk) who help save and change the lives of sick and disabled children in the UK.
