Beatrix Potter visits Gloucester

The House of the Tailor of Gloucester was visited today by two people who are both important for the city of Gloucester.

Our first visitor was Richard Graham, the prospective parliamentary candidate ( conservative ) for the city of Gloucester.

Later in the day we were honoured by a visit from Miss Potter herself. She told us all about how she wrote the tale, based on a real story.

You can see a video of her visit by clicking here. Beatrix Potter was played by Kareen Preece, a local actress and a Gloucester civic trust guide.
