A NIGHT WITH H. C. ANDERSEN [15 April 2016]

This year’s Night with Andersen took place on Friday, 15 April, in St Mary Magdalene Church. The whole evening was inspired by My Name is Karamel, a book written by Michaela Sanytrová, a Czech School without Borders’ teacher. Along with Karamel, the children visited a number of famous places across London where they met various fairytale characters. In addition, they had a chance to try loads of fun activities.
On Platform 9 ¾ at King‘s Cross, Harry Potter was looking for young talents to join his Quidditch team. Willy Wonka took the children to the mysterious Battersea Power Station where they were supposed to draw the missing plans of the factory. Mary Poppins took the children to the very top of St Paul’s Cathedral where they discovered how diffucult it may be to wear a hat. On Trafalgar Square, the children met Alsan the lion who brough them to Narnia where the children turned into lions for a little while. The Queen of Hearts prepared several difficult tasks for the children at Queen’s Park.

The end of the evening was dedicated to Karamel himself. He got lost in London and it was the children’s task to find him. When he was found, it was time to go to bed.

In the morning there was a number of games, one chapter of the book was read and there was also a programme called Questions and Answers where the children found out some interesting facts about Hans Christian Andersen.

We would like to thank all the children for participation and we cannot wait to next year’s Night with Andersen.
