Tuesday 25 July – Sunday 27 August
Take life at a gentler pace in the Gallery’s indoor Secret Cove where you can decorate fishes of the deep and add them to the ocean walls. Get comfy and listen to the sounds of the waves and dolphin chatter while admiring the beautiful birds and tropical textiles or explore the sensory cave made specially for children with special educational needs and disabilities.
The birds have been created as part of this year’s Norden Farm Beach Craft project with children from local schools; Furze Platt Junior School, Cookham Dean, Cookham Rise, Boyne Hill Infant School, Wessex Primary School, St Luke’s Primary School, Riverside Primary School, Furze Platt Infant School, Woodlands Park Primary School and St Mary’s Primary School.
Miki, Polar Bear and Penguin live in a very far away place. It’s an icy world where nothing ever grows. One midwinter eve, they make a wish, and Miki embarks on a magical adventure…in search of a star.
Based on the book by Stephen Mackey, Miki is an inspiring story about friendship, courage and adventure. It features amazing underwater creatures, enchanting music and extraordinary puppetry.
