The City of London Corporation, which manages Epping Forest, is inviting pre-school kids (and their parents) to take part in food-themed crafts, rhyme singing and story-telling in the kitchen of the Tudor Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge, Chingford, on Thursday 15th January.

Feel free to bring your child’s plastic bowl and spoon for pretend cake mixing, and soft toys are also welcome to come along.

Advanced booking is required at £4.95 per child. Babes in arms are free but this event is aimed at their slightly older siblings (up to 5 years). All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Jo Price, the City Corporation’s Forest Centres Officer for Lifelong Learning, said:

“This is the first of 11 workshops for pre-school children we’re launching in 2015. Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge is an incredibly atmospheric building, complemented by The View which has all modern facilities including toilets and baby changing amenities.

“There are great parking facilities and public transport links, and the beautiful habitats of the ancient forest surround the site so we hope families will enjoy the local natural environment after each workshop.”

Built in 1543 on the orders of Henry VIII, the Grade II* listed Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge is a unique example of a surviving timber-framed hunt standing still surrounded by its medieval royal hunting forest. It’s open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm all year round including Bank Holidays.

To book, please telephone or visit (10am-5pm daily) The View E4 7QH Tel 0207 332 1911.
