C-Art Festival 2017 – Beastie

C-Art Festival 2017 – Beastie

Part of the C-Art Festival 2017 at Rheged.

Beastie is a groundbreaking real-world adventure for children – an interactive workshop promoting imaginative learning.

Beastie is a mythical creature from the UK’s Lone Twin and he is coming to Rheged and Cumbria for the first time.

Share a jaw dropping secret and let the children take charge as they create their own stories hand in hand with their special new friend. The workshop includes exercises and games to create their own creatures, before they meet Beastie and take Beastie on an adventure walk. Meanwhile parents can have a break and explore Rheged or just enjoy some coffee and cake.

On Saturday from 4pm look out for Beastie in and around Penrith and on Sunday from 4pm, he may be spotted taking in the views over Ullswater as he explores Pooley Bridge.

This is a parent free session. Consent forms will be given out.

This project will involve your children going outside, therefore we would ask that they bring appropriate clothing for the session.
