The spring bank holiday is the perfect time for vintage excursions in Dorset. So if you want a good way of letting your children run about like mad things, eat huge Famous Five style picnics and find out more about the author of all those awfully good and wholesome stories then now is the the perfect opportunity!
The events celebrate Enid Blyton’s most creative writings which started during the war and included a wide range of special stories written especially for evacuees. Viv Endecott who is a Blyton expert (and proprietor of the Ginger Pop shop) will be sharing Enid’s stories about of wartime and how readers were encouraged by Enid through her magazine Sunny Stories. Starts 10am to 5.30 normal admission charges to Corfe Castle (but free stuff in the village)
If you want to find out more about Enid Blyton at War telephone the National Trust curator for this event; Lawrence Roots, 01929 481294, firstname.lastname@example.org. Even better – just turn up via steam train! The Swanage Railway is a vintage experience in itself so if you want something to do this is ideal!
