Event description
Join us for The Gruffalo’s Child: An expedition where imaginations run as freely as the children!

About this Event

We are delighted to bring back the Gruffalo's Child to the Hive after our sell out sessions last month. Based on the acclaimed children’s book this event will awaken the imaginations of the little people in your family with its charming storytelling, exploration and adventure.

Guaranteed to leave a lasting impression to anyone lucky enough to get hold of tickets this session is a must for Gruffalo fans everywhere. So join us as we transform into intrepid explorers and go on a truly wild quest in search of the Gruffalo and his child.

Dates: Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd February

Times: 10.00am - 11.45 or 1.15pm - 3.00pm

Location: The Hive, Moss Bank Park, Bolton BL1 6NB

Age range: Children aged 18m to 8 years. All people attending the event need a ticket excluding children under 18 months.

Price: £7.50 per person, which includes a hot cup of soup and bread roll as well as a toasted marshmallow cooked over the campfire. Adults and children all need tickets.

So this is what the expedition involves:

  1. Starting in our mission Head Quarters your expedition leader will brief the party and prepare them for their quest.
  2. Imaginations will run wild as the story ‘Gruffolo’s Child’ is narrated to the party.
  3. Next your expedition leader will take her young prodigies into the gardens in search of her tell-tell signs of the Gruffalo and his Child.
  4. We will be using all our senses as we go searching for vital signs of the Gruffalo’s existence. We’ll be looking out for footprints, natural paths, fur and droppings, to discover if the Gruffalo’s has really been foraging, hunting or resting in our gardens.
  5. Finally, the party will assemble around the camp fire to discuss our key findings while we enjoy a cup of warming soup and toasted marshmallows.
