Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival Online 2020
Broadcast Date Sunday 30 August
Join bestselling author and illustrator Kristina Stephenson in her home as she welcomes you to the wonderful world of Sir Charlie Stinky Socks – the bold, brave, little knight with a heart of gold.
Help Sir Charlie on his quest for not one but two pieces of hidden treasure as you follow the clues and see if you can solve the riddles on a mystical map in this magical, musical retelling of The Tale of Two Treasures, complete with puppets, props, songs, action, adventure and all the silliness of a pair of stinky socks.
Then learn how to make an oldie-worldy parchment treasure map, a pot of magical green bean gloop and your very own Sir Charlie Stinky Socks puppet theatre – all from paper, cardboard boxes, empty toilet roll tubes, a simple ingredient from your kitchen cupboard and a cup of tea. Yes, you heard me… a cup of tea.
Oh, and don’t forget to join in with Sir Charlie’s famous Green Bean Soup song.
This is a family event, suitable for children of all ages and their grown-ups. Because storytelling, singing and creative crafting are the greatest fun for EVERYONE!
