Let’s Get Twiggy!

Join us for some twig-tastic fun at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses as we explore our winter woodland, collecting twigs and sticks on the way.

Make your very own journey stick to tell the story of your woodland finds, and discover many other activities that you can do with twigs; from creating your own piece of land art, making a musical instrument, building a twig tower, or make a magic potion in the natural kitchen!

£5 per child / £2.50 low-income. This workshop must be booked in advance using our online ticketing system (see below).

Please provide ages of children and details of any allergies, medical conditions or additional needs in the ‘additional notes’ box when booking. Please note, all children must be supervised by a participating adult in this family workshop.

A Jolly Wassail

Join us in the greenhouse to make noisy shakers and wonderful wassail crowns, ready for the Jolly Wassail!

We’ll use recycled and natural materials to make percussion instruments, and craft beautiful decorative crowns to wear.

When everyone is crowned and happy with their home made instruments, we will learn songs from our wonderful wassailing musicians the Appleheads and the Norfolk Broads.

Then we will sing to our fruit trees and make as much noise as possible, to ‘wake up’ the sleeping trees and scare away any bad spirits. Our wassailing will make sure we have a bountiful harvest in 2019!

There will be plenty of tea, mulled cider and apple juice throughout.

This is a workshop for all ages.

What to bring: warm clothes, torches and any noisy instruments you fancy bringing along!

Exit from Brockwell Park via the Lido Gates at the end of the event.
