An event is running this Autumn in Ushaw Moor as part of the Being Human Festival (the UK’s only national festival of the humanities) The Autumn Activity Trail.
To complete the trail, local families simply need an activity sheet (these can be downloaded from our website (Autumn Activity Trail), paper copies will be distributed through some local schools and they can also be collected from the garden on allocated Saturdays).
The September event has passed now, however it will be running again this month (with a drop-in craft workshop and craft packs available on Saturday the 23rd of October) and the 20th November when we will also be having a performance from a poet and storyteller. Everything is free.
In addition to these events, all autumn we are running a creative competition. The prize is £100 to spend at a local family-friendly business and to enter, all you need to do is create something (painting, sculpture, poem, photo, short story, etc. – anything goes!) which shows ‘what nature means to you’. More details can be found here: Creative Competition.
