Last updated 3rd January 2017

Literary icon The Gruffalo will be celebrating his 15th birthday over the bank holiday weekend on 3-5 May, and all are invited to wish him a happy birthday.

Bring your children to The Eden Project to make party hats based on characters from the book, write birthday cards for The Gruffalo, and help decorate a cake for his party. Those who attend the party can take part in games such as pin the wart on The Gruffalo, Gruffalo says, and a nut hunt.

The party will also include lively readings of The Gruffalo’s book by Eden’s renowned storytellers as well as appearances by The Gruffalo himself. 

If your children love The Gruffalo, they definitely will not want to miss out on this fabulous weekend celebration!
