The Moomin puppets will be coming out of hibernation for a special appearance. Artist Davina Drummond will be taking inspiration from artist Tove Jansson and her writing about Christmas traditions. We will fill our own bauble with a loving message for family or friends. The stories of the Moomins’ adventures will be told throughout each day and we will also take the opportunity to write our letters to Father Christmas and receive a special reply!
See through the eyes of a bird, live like a badger, and make friends with giants. From the tropics to the desert, we can travel the natural world in a day and discover the enormous wonders of nature during the winter months. We will end the day with a Christmas inspired treasure hunt, how good are you at finding the clues? Perhaps the trail will end in the bee hive or will it be the badgers nest?…
We will climb to the top of the Tate and marvel at 360 views of London. Can you spot famous landmarks like Wembley Stadium, St Pauls or the London Eye? We will then get busy in the doodle bar ad choose our favourite artist to interpret into our very own portrait, christmas card or work of art.
