Southport-born author will bring stories to life at flower show

Southport-born author Jude Lennon and her story bus Buttercup will be rolling into this year’s Southport Flower Show along with other children’s entertainers including CBeebies star Justin Fletcher.

Once Upon a Time is the theme for the 2018 show – a fitting title for writer Jude, who runs Little Lamb Tales storytelling business.

The author, who will be attending the show on Saturday 18th August and Sunday 19th August to host free storytelling sessions, will be making an appearance with her story bus Buttercup, which stars in her latest children’s book ‘Lamby Goes Camping’.

Jude, who has published 13 books of her own in the last four years, will be telling a range of stories throughout the day including traditional tales, well-loved classics and other adventures.

It’s the first time Jude has attended the Southport Flower Show, which runs across four days from August 16th to 19th.

Jude’s storytelling sessions will be held in the Band Stand within the showground and times for the sessions will be displayed on each day.

The author will be joining a fantastic line-up of children’s entertainers at the show including CBeebies star Justin Fletcher. Professor Crump and the Mystical Magical Man will also be on hand to keep the children entertained and there will be themed stilt walkers and face painters.

Jude said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been invited by organisers to be part of such an incredible line-up at the show.

“There will be so many exciting activities and events to keep the children entertained each day. It will be a fantastic day out for families across the region.

“Let’s just hope the beautiful summer weather continues to hold.”

Jude is well known for hosting storytelling sessions across the Liverpool and Merseyside areas and is a regular at many events and festivals including the recently held Southport Food Festival.
