Pay a visit to the world of ghastly freak shows at the Buttercup Cafe in Lewes

The Bags of Books Summer Party will be held on Sunday, August 25 – and this year it promises to be a scorcher.

It features a great line-up of children’s authors at The Buttercup Cafe, Lewes, including Rob Lloyd Jones.

He will take party-goers on an exciting journey to Victorian London to find out about ghastly freak shows, grimy sewers and the thrilling true events that inspired his mystery story Wild Boy.

Also appearing will be Leigh Hodgkinson, Liz Pichon and Helen Peters.

Tickets for each of the events are £3 per child, with accompanying adults going free. For full details and to book visit or call the independent retailer on 01273 479320.
