Spring is almost here but flowers bloom all year round at the Wallace.

A flower of magic, miracles and mysteries - the tulip. In this storytelling session with Olivia Armstrong you will discover a magical way to grow a striped tulip, hear how one gardener found a strange way to protect his blooms and meet the lonely dragon who breathed fiery life into the very first tulip.
