Grue: Community Build days

A new magical alternative Christmas adventure.

Grue; A new magical alternative Christmas adventure is coming to the Old Parcels Office in Scarborough this December. Grue takes its name from an historic word for snow or shiver, and is a festive walk-through experience taking families on a journey through forest, town, sea and sky – And we need volunteers to help us build!

Community members can get involved in the project by attending building session – a creative, relaxed and fun workshop. You will get to create and build cardboard houses, trees and walls which will all become part of Grue. Templates and advice will be provided by world class artist Steve Wintercroft, so no experience is necessary.

Thursday 11th November, 2pm – 6pm

The build days are suitable for the whole family, however those aged 12 and under will need to be supervised by a parent/guardian.
