The King's Wardrobe Story Trail

6 May - 4 June

You are cordially invited...
Sir Lawrence the Lion is being crowned King. Visit his friends in your area and see what they give him to wear for the coronation - they’re not all very sensible! Then try them on yourself, complete mini-challenges and take selfies. Finally, meet the King in A R and download a free children’s ebook of the story.

Take part in our free story trail around Reading as part of this year’s Reading Children’s Festival. Throughout May, visit all of the King’s friends around the town centre and see what they suggest he wear for his coronation (spoiler alert, they are not all very sensible), complete mini-challenges, try on the items yourselves and take selfies with them on. When you’ve met all 10, you can see the fully prepared King in augmented reality and download a free children’s book of the story’s conclusion.
