What an incredible first week we have had hosting Mystery, Magic and Midnight Feasts: The many adventures of Enid Blyton at the Beaney!  So many visitors have walked through the doors to see Blyton’s famous typewriter, her diaries and of course, to drive Noddy’s car!

Here are just a few of our favourite moments from the week, along with some of the photos you have shared with us…

Mystery, Magic and Midnight Feasts is designed to be playful, interactive and immersive, for young audiences to enjoy. Children are invited to throw themselves into the worlds of the Famous Five and Secret Seven, Malory Towers, Magic Faraway Tree and Noddy’s Toyland. Many exhibits will be on public display for the first time, revealing Blyton’s creative imagination and the events that shaped her life and storytelling.

This enthralling exhibition, the first celebrating the life and work of Enid Blyton has been created by Seven Stories, National Centre for Children’s Books.
