On Saturday we headed to a reading of The cat in the hat by the world famous Dr Suess at Barkingside library.
The event was held outside and benches were line up in front of the steps ready for the performance. Prior to the event starting people from the event were making balloon animals up and down the high street.
The performance was put on by The Discovery Centre who are based in Stratford. If you haven’t been yet I can not recommend it highly enough http://www.discover.org.uk/ the 2 people performing were really good and interacted well with the parents and children and really brought the story to life.
There was even a surprise visit at the end by The cat in the hat himself!
Once the performance was over with there was a chance to have your photo taken with the cat and his car, obviously i jumped at the chance of this.
We then headed inside the library to take a look at the arts and crafts that included face painting for £1.50 and making items from the story including a hat like the cat’s, these were all free.
It was a great way to spend a few hours locally and not spend any money!
