summer events in the Peak District


I am coordinating a wonderful, mad and delightful project for our local environment,  people and celebration community group Stone and Water

We've just released the events programme for this latest project "Exploring with Stories". If you are in the area, drop in and join in. If  that's not possible, drop in on-line and enjoy the results of our fun!
all our artwork is by the lovely Martin Olsson - more information and the full poster to follow

Exploring with Stories
~ out, about and investigating with stories, books and exciting activities
~ all events will combine storytelling with art and discovery activities and offer ideas of things you could do yourself when out for a walk…
