Teddy Bears’ Picnic at Izaak Walton’s Cottage

Sunday 10 July 2016 12 noon to 5pm

Izaak Walton’s Cottage, Worston Lane, Shallowford, Nr. Stone, Stafford, ST15 0PA.

Enjoy family fun and games in the cottage garden, with puppet show, face painting, storytelling, craft stalls and a bouncy castle for the younger family members. This year we also have a ‘pop up’ vintage tea room and a number of wildlife groups on hand to show youngsters around the gardens. So bring along a picnic and don’t forget your teddy!

Izaak Walton’s Cottage was once owned by the author of the Compleat Angler. The museum is dedicated to Izaak and the history and evolution of angling. Visitors can also enjoy the gardens and treat themselves to an afternoon tea or ice cream.

The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is one of the most popular events at the site. It is sponsored by the Izaak Walton Cottage Chapter, an organisation dedicated to helping Stafford Borough Council with the preservation of the Cottage.
