A free and family-friendly event is set to take place in Lord Ancrum’s Wood in Dalkeith this Sunday.

The woods are to be transformed into a magical haven where children can spend the day enjoying a wide range of activities and entertainment.

Those in attendance will be given the opportunity to listen to enchanting tales told by storytellers, build dens, tackle assault courses and even see how fast their teddy bears can travel on a specially designed zip wire.

Magic in the Woods, which will take place from 1pm – 4pm, is being hosted by Kidding Around Play in Penicuik and The Forestry Commission.
