The much-loved children’s book character - created by Julia Donaldson - will visit the forest on Saturday, July 7.

The ravenous rat, who craves buns, biscuits and all sweet thing, rides on his horse in search for sugary treats to steal.

Families are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy classic party games and activity sheets.

Youngsters will be able to meet Highway Rat and have their photographer taken with him.

There will be an activity trail and an activity containing a Highway Rat mask, stickers of the Highway Rat characters, a pencil and a crayon, can be bought at the site’s cafe for £3.

A free party pack for the day can also be downloaded from the Forestry Commission website.

The event will take place from 10am until 4pm.
