This February half term, children will explore themes of nature, wildlife and the climate through dance, storytelling, and arts & crafts. Inspired by the current Landscape Rebels Exhibition at Christchurch Mansion, participants will have the opportunity to experience real artifacts and images from the exhibition, dancing among the ancient wildlife of Suffolk whilst learning about the history of East Anglia.
