Enter the riotously funny forest of Grimwood, where fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in the Big City!

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, author and illustrator superstar Nadia Shireen brings her wildly funny Grimwood characters to life in this interactive family event as Nadia shows you how she draws Grimwood’s quirky inhabitants and reads from her new laugh-your-head-off off, fully-illustrated new series.

Cheltenham Ladies' College, Parabola Arts Centre

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
