Quote from our facebook page “My 9-year-old so-called ‘reluctant reader’ is sitting on the sofa completely absorbed in a brilliant Tommy Donbavand book.
Every so often he looks up and says ‘I just can’t believe I won!’ I think this may have been one of the best days of his life – thank you to the Linton Children’s Book Festival”
…………..And there is another fabulous day planned for tomorrow!
See you there?
Absolutely thrilled with today’s rebellion. Here are some photos (Thanks Dave D)! More soon on Flickr.
In the summer of 1648, England was at war and Colchester lay under siege.
The people of Cambridgeshire rose in rebellion to save the hard-pressed City. They mustered in Linton, not knowing that the war would soon come to them.
Join The Linton Rebellion and experience for yourself the roar of gunfire and the smoke of the campfire.
The event has been organised by The English Civil War Society and Sir William Pennyman’s Regiment 1643.net. Take this chance to travel back in time to 1648, as you are unlikely to see anything like this in Linton again!
The day commences with a Civil War church service at St. Mary’s at 10am. The action then moves to Camping Close (behind the Infants School) where a host of activities run from 11.00am to 4.00pm. Light refreshments will be available. There is free entry to the field but a small donation of £5 per family would be appreciated to help us cover costs – look out for book festival volunteers with donation buckets.
If you’re coming from outside the village, the best place to park is Linton Village College which is accessed from the A1307 and is a 5 minute walk away. We suggest that you leave your pets at home because the sound of the muskets and cannon can be quite loud!
Eeewwww, click here to see Matthew Ward getting his face spattered with blood!
Matthew will be in Linton as part of the Linton Rebellion Sunday May 6th. Don’t miss it!
Those of you who came to A Thousand Cranes performance of ”The Milky Way” in 2010 will not want to miss the next beautiful production from Kumiko.
Three enchanting and bewitching traditional Japanese tales are brought to life through inventive storytelling, puppetry and music.
The two performers arrive with a small “theatre” on the back of their bicycle which contains a story, illustrated by drawings, and quite a few surprises.
Suitable for chidren aged 3+ and their families.
Afterwards join Kumiko to make some simple origami.
