Enid Blyton Day
First held in 1995, the annual Enid Blyton Day brings together over a hundred people each spring for a day of all things Blyton.
In between talks by noted speakers, there is ample time in which to view the displays of Blyton memorabilia, peruse the many stalls from some of the country's leading dealers of children's books, and to get to know fellow Enid Blyton collectors and enthusiasts over coffee and sandwiches.
Special guests vary from year to year. In recent years, TV's Famous Five actors Marcus Harris (Julian) and Gary Russell (Dick) have been present, chatting openly on stage and providing a very entertaining trip down memory lane. Regular attendees include Enid Blyton's daughter Imogen Smallwood.

And for those who can attend but are undecided about coming along, perhaps these pages will help make up your mind...
