As dusk fell on both Friday and Saturday, the pages turned, and this giant book shared its well-known tales from the Jaberwocky to the Gashlycrumb Tinies, the story of our spa town and a host of ten-word tales from best-selling authors and local residents.

The incredible spectacle was positioned in Library Gardens, and there was plenty of room for watching, whilst at the same ensuring social distancing can be safely observed.
