Ever wanted to step inside your favourite children’s adventure?
We can’t go under it,
We can’t go over it,
We’ve got to go to it!
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. Visit us from 14 May to 24 July 2016.
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.
