Tales From The Trees – Ages 5 + – Half Term Family event at Blackwood Miners’ Institute

Meet Craig, the friendly Forest Ranger and resident tree expert. It’s his job to make sure the woods are a peaceful and happy place, but he’s having a tough time of it today! A cheeky squirrel has stolen his Chocolate Covered Nutty Snack Bar™, his niece Little Red has wandered off the path on her way to Granny’s house, the mysterious old Wizard of the Woods is playing tricks again, and there are even rumours of a big bad Wolf in the forest!

Will Craig save the day? Come and find out, and along the way learn how to identify different trees, discover the wonder of photosynthesis, gasp at deadly carnivorous plants, and encounter crazy characters from folklore and fairy tales!

‘Tales from the Trees’ is 50 minutes long and suitable for children aged 5+ and their families. There are two sessions available; the first one at 11am, the second at 2pm.
