Norden Farm are getting into the summer vibe this year with a beach themed treasure hunt around the building.
Follow the clues to complete Michael Rosen’s sea-inspired poem Over My Toes and then get creative composing your own poems and pictures.
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
Treasure Hunt sheets are available from Box Office or Café Bar.

A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth.
One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…
Percy the Park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…
A snuggly, fun and heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to and furry friends to meet.
