Celebrating World Book Day on 7 March this year, Horsham District Council in partnership with Horsham Markets by Food Rocks, Tomfoolery, Maverick Publishing, Gobsmack Comics and Non Stop Party Shop are organising a World Book Day costume party in the Carfax Horsham.
Starting at the Carfax bandstand at 2.30pm for pre-schoolers, and running up to 4.30pm for primary school pupils, children’s entertainer Tomfoolery will be MC for the afternoon for a storytelling bonanza for assembled children. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes in the categories of pre-school, boy, girl and superhero.
And don’t worry about tea for the kids, Horsham Markets and their street food traders are launching a special smaller appetites menu for World Book Day with portions priced at just £4 each.
It’s an ideal opportunity for everyone to become a “Taste Explorer” and enjoy some freshly cooked local produce.
Commenting on the event, Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “What a great after school event to celebrate World Book Day. Children can come ready in their costumes from school to enjoy the storytelling, have the chance to win some great prizes and enjoy some delicious food from our street food markets.
“There will also be a surprise, world famous book character, who happens to be celebrating his 20th birthday this year, celebrating in the Carfax too. So don’t forget to look out for him!”
