01/08/2009 to 31/08/2009 Baxterbear returns to Edinburgh’s famous Caledonian Hilton Hotel on Princes Street (known as the Caley to its friends) and makes quite an impression on the staff and guests! From eight to 80, an amazing four generations enjoyed The Baxterbear Tales debut – Storytelling for All Ages, where the origins of Baxterbear’s unique philosophy on life was revealed. Taken from PrimaryTimes.net:
Baxterbear will now join the likes of Marlon Brando, Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich, Ginger Rogers, Joan Collins, Elton John, Sir Sean Connery and Rod Stewart by taking up residence at the hotel. Willy Blattner, General Manager of the Caledonian Hilton, said: “Baxterbear is set to secure a massive following at the hotel and beyond. We hosted a trial session at the hotel in the run up to Christmas and the demand for Baxterbear and his stories was phenomenal. Our doorman Billy features in some of the stories and is already starting to gather a small Baxterbear fan base.” Since the website launched on 24th December Baxterbear has been inundated with letters of thanks from parents, medical teams and children; Baxterbear has really grabbed their imagination. The Caledonian Hilton will also be offering a special Baxterbear Afternoon Tea in the Pompadour Restaurant after every reading. Fans will be treated to a mouth watering menu of sophisticated sandwiches such as Isle of Skye Smoked Salmon, Peeled Cucumber and Peppered Cream Cheese and sweet treats such as Pistachio Cream Cake and Scones with Clotted Cream and Jam.
