YOUNG magical creatures are invited for a spellbinding day of activities at Hedingham Castle.

Fairies, trolls, witches and wizards are invited to Brightworth’s School of Magic next Friday, when they must keep things running smoothly while the teachers are away.

Youngsters who attend the Brightworth’s Presents: Founding Fairies and Troublesome Trolls sessions will have the chance to meet some of the fairies and trolls who live in the castle, and take part in some magic-themed activities.

Visitors will get the chance to learn all about troll anatomy and the best way to craft fairy houses.

There are magical crystals hidden in the grounds, and visitors will help find them before the fairy catcher can.

The first session runs from 10.30am to 1pm, followed by an afternoon session from 1.30pm to 4pm.

The April 19 event is aimed at children aged four-12, but older children can still attend. It costs £12.95 for children up to the age of 15, £10 for adults and under-twos get in for free.
