Stonyhurst, St Mary’s Hall – World Book Day

06 Mar 2015

Harry Potter, Fantastic Mr Fox, the White Witch, knights, tigers and princesses could all be found at Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall on World Book Day, as pupils came to school dressed as their favourite story-book characters.

Everyone settled down for a good read in the Tolkien Library; J. R. Tolkien, the author of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’, enjoyed many holidays at Stonyhurst. The librarians organised a brilliant sale of second-hand books and there was lively discussion about what the children had read and enjoyed.
