We had a wonderful time at The Chase Market on Sunday!
I wandered around the market and took a few photos of the fabulous stalls! The Chase Market looks lovely in Autumn with yellow and orange leaves dotted around everywhere.
Storytime at the market was fantastic! It was amazing to see some families from my previous library workshops had come especially for my Storytimes! I had a funny Bridget Jones moment before I began though! Trying to get people's attention in a bustling market situation is not as easy as it may seem! At first, I politely announced I was beginning. Then, when no one reacted, I raised my voice a little louder! Still, no one reacted! Then my mum suggested I play the CD, and sure enough, the sound of my audiobook grabbed people's attention and families gathered around!
Listening, singing, dancing, and drawing with the children at The Chase Market.
I did two workshops. The children loved my story 'Billy Joins the Circus' and enjoyed the activities we did together. I loved doing my Storytimes outdoors, it was fun! I would definitely recommend popping by The Chase Market on a Sunday morning! Not only for the tasty treats on offer but to take part in the arts and crafts activities they include every week.
Big thank you to Lawrence, Leela, and Carlos!
