Exciting festive fun for our younger visitors includes:
A Place for Winter
This is a 30min show bringing to life the wonder of the winter season for younger pupils.
It’s almost time for the animals to hibernate for winter but Dormouse isn’t too keen. He’s never experienced this time of year before and is just too curious to go to sleep. Hedgehog must help his young friend understand the season and find just the right place to rest, but will he do so before Old Man Winter arrives?
