A creation conjured from the imaginings of children
Beastie is coming to Bristol. All the way here from some wild place.
In town for the first time, Beastie may initially be met with suspicion, even fear. But as the creature wanders the city’s streets over the five days of the festival, this outsider senses our welcome.
Beastie is in Bristol throughout the IBT17 Bristol International Festival appearing and disappearing at unexpected times and in the least likely locations. Keep your eyes open and your wits about you!
Workshops for Kids between 6- 10 years old
Share a jaw-dropping secret and let the children take charge as they create their own stories and explore Bristol’s streets hand-in-hand with their special new friend.
10am + 3.30pm: Workshop & games
The children do exercises, games and create their own creatures, before they meet Beastie.
1pm: Workshop with a walk
The children learn about creatures before taking Beastie on an adventure to explore the Trinity Gardens.
Please note that workshops are only for children but parents and supervisors are welcome to stay at Trinity Centre and wait in the bar or feel free to wonder down Old Market and get a coffee whilst children are in the workshops.
