ENID UNTOLDEnid2

Hoorah! Grab lashings of Ginger Beer and prepare for Timmy to get Licky. Those Jolly Hockeysticks ConArtists, are back to improvise through a spiffing escapade in the style of beloved children’s author Enid Blyton. The Thrusting Three, The Silly Six or perhaps The Frisky Four will solve epic adventures involving pesky adults with the help of their good solid English Values and immensely sensible shoes. Oh, and they’ll probably eat some scones too.

Warning: May contain grown men in shorts.
