The treasure hunt is tactile and the clues are suitable for children with visual impairments (with adult assistance). You can also scan a QR code to listen to Michael Rosen reading his poem once you have completed the trail.

We’d love to read your creations and share your experiences of taking part in our treasure hunt. Tag us in your pictures @nordenfarm on Instagram and Twitter / @nordenfarmcentreforthearts on Facebook!

Fri 22 Jul – Thur 25 Aug

Free to take part
