Children's Christmas activities at Foyles, Birmingham

I am passing on the details of a children's activity half hour to be held at the recently opened Foyles shop, Grand Central in Birmingham early December. Designed to entertain little ones, while allowing grown-ups a short break from Christmas shopping, though this new shop has a prominent children's section to discover!
Festive themed activities, with face painting from Hannah Pink of Pink Faces. Storytime will be led by Smriti Prasadam-Halls. Smriti will be reading from her new picture book, called Santa Baby

'… Roo and Santa baby felt a tingling in their toes,they held their breath and gave a squeak as up, up, up they rose.
Then suddenly they took a dive and with one great big swoop …
Roo and Santa Baby did a GIANT LOOP-THE-LOOP!'
