Residents at brighterkind’s The Granby Care Home in Harrogate have celebrated World Book Day with a ‘Once upon a Time’ storytelling event and fairy tale themed tea party.

After enjoying a screening of the film ‘Beauty and the Beast’, team members dressed up as characters from the book and led a reminiscence session asking residents to share memories of their favourite childhood tales.

Residents took afternoon tea in the home’s ballroom which was decorated in a fairy tale theme and enjoyed the chef’s prince and princess cupcakes.

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Lydia Jackson said:

What a magical day! Everyone really enjoyed our celebration of storytelling and it was lovely to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane to rekindle happy memories of stories we enjoyed as children.
