A TEDDY bears' picnic is being staged at Silsden Library.

The event will feature a range of activities for children up to six years old.

Attractions will include face painting, stories, crafts and games.

The picnic takes place on Wednesday, May 29, between 11am and 1pm.

Places are limited, and must be booked in advance.

The event is part of a programme of activities being held across the district by Bradford Council’s Libraries Service, to coincide with the school Spring Bank holidays.

Other initiatives include a visit to Ilkley and City libraries by award-winning American family-friendly rock indie duo Play Date.

Play Date has been featured by leading media outlets and TV channels across the USA and recently its song Dance Like a Monster appeared on Fox primetime show, Lucifer.

There will also be story times and workshops.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s executive member for healthy people and places, says: "There will be lots to do in our libraries over the school half-term holidays for children of all ages, so come along, get involved and have fun!"
