Blyton, Books and Bonbons!

Tomorrow sees the opening of the Beaney’s latest exhibition, Mystery, Magic and Midnight Feasts: the many adventures of Enid Blyton. With a promise of lashings of fun for all the family, the exhibition is set to be popular with both children and those taking a stroll down memory lane.

Amid all the excitement and buzz I just want to take a moment to appreciate the sumptuous display of confectionary perfection which sits opposite the gallery. Our retail team extraordinaire, Kate Boys-Layton and Guinevere Short, have created a Blyton inspired gift shop, with each item hand selected to take you back to the simple days of reading Enid Blyton as a child. From retro toys and games to books exploring Blyton’s life and work, there is truly something for everyone.
