Vintage Books

Well Hello!....On my travels the other day I found some more vintage children's books.
The Story bumper book is from 1935. the Henny Penny is from 1984. I am not sure of the dates on the Ladybird books; but I remember having a few Ladybird books when I was little. So maybe they are from 1970's - 1980's?

The Wheel House

I went to the fantastic 'Freedom Festival' last weekend. It has lots of live bands, dance, art and street theatre; including this amazing piece of circus theatre from 'Acrojou' below . They are called 'The Wheel House'. It shows an acrobatic tale told in a wheel. The two people inside the wheel climbed in and out as they told their tale. The wheel is a hand-built structure and it was truly amazing to watch.
