Love Nature, Love Stick Man Wed 19 Feb half-term 19th February 2020

Take part in a 2-hour family activity session. Help Stick Man get back home to his Stick Lady Love by following our Stick Man Trail, with nature based crafts and storytelling in the woods and plenty of fun along the way. Parts of the session will be outside but we’ll also go inside to warm up in our cosy Pavilion.

Here’s what you need to know:

Family learning events are with Juliette Green (Education Officer, Martineau Gardens), this activity is for supervised children aged 3—7 years so parents / carers are expected to stay and join in the fun, but don’t pay. The activities are aimed at 3 to 7 year olds but tickets may be bought for younger / older siblings too who wish to participate in the activity.
Dress for the weather, as parts of the session will take place outside.
Bring a drink and a snack or bring your packed lunch if you’d like to have a picnic at Martineau Gardens (after the morning session or before the afternoon session).  Martineau Gardens serves hot and cold drinks (for which donations are welcomed) but not food.

Stick Man and Martineau Gardens:

We are one of a very select group of city farms, community gardens and care farms in the UK that have been chosen to host a Stick Man trail, which have been created by Social Farms & Gardens, a charity that uses land-based activities to improve people’s lives and the places where they live. Find out more about Social Farms & Gardens via

The Stick Man trail (installed thanks to the support of Magic Light Pictures) is based on the much-loved Stick Man picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. In addition to these special activities, you can also follow the Stick Man trail, here at Martineau Gardens. The Stick Man trail is available as a free activity Monday to Saturday (expect Bank holidays and special events) – though donations are welcomed. Find out more here.
