Let the countdown begin…

It’s all go here at Chicken and Frog as we are gearing up for our opening day. We’re going for the 20th October, so time is truly ticking now. Books are beginning to be ordered, shelving has been picked and, most importantly, I have a gorgeous purple satin dress for the launch party!

Our events page has been updated and is jam-packed full of glorious activities for everyone to enjoy. During the first two weeks we have decided to offer all of our Chicken and Frog sessions for FREE. Yes, that’s free. Crazy I know, but we want you to have a try of what’s on offer without paying out, especially during half term when money seems to slip rapidly through your fingers. The only event we are charging for is our awesome Halloween party, because there’ll be a ridiculous amount of cake and goodies available. Even so, it’s a mere £4 per child, so it’s a bargain.

The party is for those aged 10+, so feel free to drop and run (leaving contact details) or you can hang around and join us in a glass of punch (alcohol free, sorry). This event must be pre-booked and pre-paid, so that we can ensure we have enough cup-cakes and goodies to last. The party includes games, a crafty session and spooky stories based on Alfred Noyes’ ‘The Highwayman‘.
