Writer : Jayne Williams

Marking the return of Nottingham's famous Goose Fair...

Our six part postcard adventure for children and families is back!

When puzzling postcards start arriving through your letterbox asking for help, only you can crack the code and figure out who the mystery writer is.

Following a successful postcard drama format, the return of Nottingham's famous Goose Fair inspires our latest series, Fair Play, is a six-part postcard adventure for families with children aged 5-9yrs to enjoy together.

An original gift for 5-9-year-olds, providing hours of entertainment!

Each card contains a secret code to crack, a mystery letter to help detect the writer of the cards, plus a QR code on each postcard to download with an activity sheet to explore a variety of fun creative challenges!

For families, places cost £12.75 per name and address to receive this drama told across six postcards (£28 for Europe/Worldwide delivery) please enter your full name, UK address and postcode to take part.
