Storming the Castle!

Hey Festival goers!!

I'm Cat and you may have seen me and my team of awesome stewards surrounded by our Knights of the round table in our Castle at this year's knights of the round table themed children's festival. 

We take over a corner of Island park each year with a full festival programme just for the children.

 I can hardly believe that we are fast approaching the end of 2012!  As next year's festival fast approaches, this year's children's festival is taking shape. 

As always we will have workshops and activities from song, dance and story, as well as circus skills and traditional crafts. 

Scrapstore are returning after they wowed us all this year with our very own dragon! Who knows what they will dream up this year!  

A new comer to 2013 is Stiltskin, performance group based in the south west,  you may recognise them from Sidmouth.  As well as running our circus skills workshops they will also be contributing to our story telling sessions,  and you might even spot some interesting characters wandering around the festival, but more about that nearer the time! 

2013 's theme is Myth's and Legends.   So What Myths and legends are your favorites?  what legendary character's should we be inviting into our castle?

I think that's enough details for now! watch this space for more in the coming weeks.  

here is a couple of links
