Ever wanted to step inside your favourite children’s adventure
Swash your way the long grass
Sploosh through a river
Stumble through the dark wood
Then tiptoe into a gloomy cave…
…and rub noses with a great big friendly Bear
The hands-on, interactive experience, with hidden rooms, a bear’s den and giant chocolate cake, was designed by Discover Children’s Story Centre, Stratford, London. The installation features twenty-five-year-old children’s classic book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by former Children’s Laureate and well loved author Michael Rosen and award winning illustrator Helen Oxenbury. This brand new, pop-up style installation is touring the UK and Cornwall College Camborne is its debut location.
Funded by Arts Council England and Esmee Fairbairn, Michael Rosen’s Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things truly reflects Michael’s energy and passion for education, creativity and writing. Younger children will be able to participate in a Bear Hunt trail whilst older children can go on a fun fact finding mission and create poems of their own to takeaway. Michael has collaborated on the project, and the exhibition will feature hidden rooms where clues can be found that reveal the inspiration behind Michael’s writing, including his Grandparents’ sitting room and his childhood classroom.
Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake and Bad Things is open from 14th May-24th July
Avalon Theatre, Merlin Building, Cornwall College, Camborne
Trevenson Road, Pool, Redruth, TR15 3RD
Parking free and we have a small cafe and shop to accompany the installation.
