Robinson Crusoe - Hilliers Grand Bauble Hunt (or Telling a story through Trees!)
Get involved for some swash buckling fun when we join forces to promote the Mayflower’s pantomime Robinson Crusoe through the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens Christmas Trail - the Grand Bauble Hunt during November.
We are looking for local people with learning disabilities to work with Mayflower staff and a public artist to create tree dressings telling the story of the pantomime through the trail. There will also be the opportunity to visit the gardens at a reduced rate to see the whole trail.
Call Michelle if you want to be part of this – limited spaces, so hurry!
