The Gruffalo is back in the forest

Posted on 17th October 2013

Everybody’s favourite make-believe monster is coming to the Forest of Dean on the 26th and 27th October this year thanks to the Dean Heritage Centre, in association with Julia Donaldson’s Gruffalo’s Child.


The story of The Gruffalo tells the tale of a mouse’s walk through the woods, so what could be better than booking up a Forest of Dean family cottage break on these days, where you can all walk the Gruffalo woodland trail? Bring the kids along and you could meet the famed Gruffalo yourself, get your picture taken with the family-favourite monster, and take part in the Gruffalo’s Child craft activities.

The Dean Heritage Centre offers refreshments and interactive trails of their own, which are great fun for all the family. Children can even take home their very own Gruffalo’s Child toy from the Centre’s gift shop.

As the only site to be given permission to create a Gruffalo trail from the author and illustrator of the popular children’s story, the Dean Heritage Centre in the Forest of Dean is a must for any young Gruffalo fan.
