Tales Of Winter Magic - Butser Ancient Farm

On Friday Hannah, Dean and I went to the Tales Of Winter Magic celebration at Butser Ancient Farm . We have been to this event a few times in the past and Hannah always really enjoys it. The stories are told by Red Phoenix, sitting around the fire in the Round House, to celebrate the winter solstice.

First we had a look around the farm and Hannah learnt a little about how people would have lived in Iron age and Roman times.

 and finding out how things looked in a Roman villa.

At twilight we gathered in the Great Round House to wait for the stories to begin.

 The stories were fantastic, funny and interactive, with lots of the children taking part. Hannah had a really good time.

She even came away with a solstice gift which she is planning to open today December 21st.
