Highly Sprung Travelling Treasury
Travelling Treasury is a magical story telling experience that takes places in a beautifully transformed caravan. Step inside the pages of a book and let the stories unfold, quite literally before your eyes. Think, dream and believe as you are taken on a wonderful journey through sound, stunning visual paper creations and animated story telling. A wonderful experience for all ages!
BeatFeet Drumming Workshop
http://www.beatfeet.co.uk/ Jude Winwood from BeatFeet joins us for a series of family drumming workshops throughout the event. Try your hand at playing a West African djembe drum, or creating a vibrant Samba sound with drumming from Brazil. There'll be plenty of instruments to choose from to help you bring out your inner drummer! Jude had the pleasure of being selected to run a special drumming workshop for HRH Kate Middleton last December. Just think...you could be playing the same drum as the princess herself! Be sure to bring the whole family to BeatFeet's drumming workshops. Everyone will be warmly welcome!
UpAnAtEm History - Hands On History
Hands on history experiences from different centuries in the Parish Field.
Come along a find out what a Knight wore into battle. Handle armour, swords and shields as we get dressed for battle. Once dressed we tell the story of the Battle of Bosworth and how this turning point in history was far from certain for the Tudor dynasty...
The Home Guard will be on patrol in the Bosworth area looking for parachutists and enemy agents in the leafy, green countryside. Have your ID cards ready as the Home Guard will be checking details and showing how they would have met a Nazi invasion...
An introduction to circus! This is a chance to try your hand at some classic circus skills including Diablo, hula-hoop, scarf juggling, stilt walking and poi.
Everyone loves bubbles so join us for wibbly, wobbly, popping fun and watch your cares float away!
