Stick Man festive family sessions December 2018

Saturday 15 December* and Thursday 20 December

Join us for a special festive family Stick Man event at Martineau Gardens this December. Each session will begin with a showing of the Stick Man film in our cosy Pavilion, with a drink and a Stick Man biscuit. Children will then go on the Stick Man Trail around the gardens and woodland, and we will finish by making a Stick Man Christmas tree decoration to take home. * Sat 15 Dec – all sessions sold out

The ticket price will include a small plush Stick Man toy (RRP £5.99) for each child.

Sessions are led by Juliette Green, our Education Officer. This is a family learning event —activities are for supervised children aged 3—7 years. Parents/carers are expected to stay and join in but don’t pay, children’s tickets are £10 per head (plus £1 booking fee). You just need to book a ticket for each child (not the adult). Numbers are limited to 20 children per session.

Advance booking via is essential.

About Stick Man at 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.

You can also follow the Stick Man Trail  at other times through a self-guided trail – it’s free to take part but donations are welcomed to help our beautiful community garden stay open for free.
