Perfect your pirouettes and plies as you decorate life-sized animal ballerinas with author and illustrator of Ballet Bunnies, Lucy Freegard. Drop in for lots of dance-themed crafts and fun – just don’t forget to point those toes! ALL AGES.

Betty loves dancing. At home, in front of her little sister, Bluebell, she is a wonderful performer. Bluebell loves to clap Betty’s pirouettes and plies. However, once Betty is in dance class, her confidence disappears and she feels far less graceful than the other dancers. Can she find her poise and balance in time to perform in the end of term show?

Lucy Freegard has an MA in children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art, a degree in illustration from Cardiff School of Art & Design and did her art foundation at Falmouth University.  Since graduating in 2015 Lucy has worked on a range of projects, from writing and illustrating picture books to designing soft toys and greetings cards from her studio in East London.
