I’m lucky to have regular bookings at Bewilderwood, and I do adore it there, under the leaves, with the lovely staff and pretty surroundings. But occasionally we Twiggles do leave the trees!
Ros & Sheila have been developing a ‘Bewilderwood Experience’ for younger kids which can be based in a marquee, and have been taking it out to events. So far I have been included at the Game & Country Fair on the Norfolk Showground, MayDays (on Chapelfield Gardens as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Art Festival) and the Royal Norfolk Show.
As usual Bewilderwood’s colourful, fun, musical tent with crafts pulled in crowds, and I was busy face painting for them. As at the park, all face paint profits went to charity; this year they have decided it will all go to Autism Anglia whom they have close links with and keep spaces for on their stands.
For a small charity fee, kids can race round the multi-sensory ‘Bewilderwood Story’ and then take part in all sorts of crafts, storytelling etc or simply interact with the lovely staff.
What I like is that I tend to be allowed to stray from stricly Bewilderwood themes and get in the occasional tiger, etc – they are not allowed at the park as they terrify the Boggles!
