Organised by Wild Rumpus, The Spellbound Forest is an enchanting day out as we invite a family audience to follow the paths in Delamere Forest, each telling the story of an English fairy tale through theatrical performance, music, storytelling, creative writing and dance. There is also lots of lovely food and drink and a picnic area. Families will come into the forest on a timed ticket. Tickets will allow entry within a 15 minute time slot. This is to make sure that the forest doesn’t get too busy.
Using to train to and from Delamere is an ideal way to get there as the station is under 10 minutes walk from the Visitor Centre. Remember to ask for a “Northern Duo” if starting from Mid Cheshire Line stations – it’s a Buy One get Second Half Price deal!
Fancy volunteering to help?
We require helpful, friendly volunteers to guide families, dress up, tell stories and help us turn a beautiful forest into an even more magical wonderland capable of bringing to life 3 classic English Fairy Tales.
We’re holding a volunteer meeting at Delamere Visitor Centre on Saturday 28 April from 3pm-5pm.
About Wild Rumpus
We organise large scale family arts events in wild natural landscapes.
The events that we organise take families out of their day to day lives into magical and enchanting places which can inspire, create memories and have a lasting impact. We provide the environment where families can sing, dance & play together not in separate children’s activities and believe that families deserve access to the highest quality art.
Wild Rumpus produce the award-winning Just So Festival , a boutique, weekend-long festival of creativity aimed at children, young people and their families; Nutcrack Night , a a large-scale outdoor family evening of theatrical performance, wild dancing, light spectaculars and masked mayhem; and are expanding our repertoire of events further in 2012.
In addition, we are developing an accompanying programme of research, dissemination, advocacy and artist development, creating a virtuous circle informing our own practice and promoting and developing best practice in family arts nationally.
