Festival of Ideas – The Wishing Tree (story-telling) – 7th March 2020
Three sessions: 10am, 11.45am and 13.45pm
Come and hear the story of the Wishing Tree and make your own wish to hang on the tree.
There will be lots of opportunities to join in with the story, or just to sit and listen, whichever you prefer.
