Seeds for Plymouth - Immersive Wildflower Experience

22nd May 2022 to 26th June 2022 Market Hall Dome Experience Child Friendly, Digital Technology, Family Friendly, Green Eco, Immersive, May Half Term
Book Now

Colour in your very own wildflower to see them come alive in the
Market Hall immersive dome and re-wild our virtual city with green spaces and
wildlife. As more flowers emerge, bees, insects and other pollinators will begin
to thrive!

This interactive immersive experience has been developed in
collaboration by Real Ideas and Pollenize CIC as part of Seeds For Schools, a
crowdfunded project to equip every school child in Plymouth with a free packet
of wildflower seeds; that’s 36,000 eco-heroes! Bring your child to the Market
Hall immersive dome to see how their own small contributions can create huge positive
impact for pollinators and our planet.

All colouring sheets and pencils are provided.

A number of sessions also
include a live reading of ‘Ziggy’s Frightening Flight’, a popular children’s
story book. It tells the story of Ziggy the honey bee to highlight the global
problem of habitat loss and the relationship between humans and wildlife.
Stunning artwork captures the imagination of young readers and brings to life a
very real threat to our world. Find out more about the story here.

Live Storytelling is only available on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th, Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st, and Friday 22nd April for both sessions.

On the 21st of April, we will also be joined by a volunteer who will be signing the storytelling in British Sign Language!
