Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens
2016 has seen TheVERYidea artists working with staff and volunteers at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens to offer outdoor creative play activities for children and families. A Big Creative Family Play Day took place in June, where families dropped in to explore and play together making constructions, dens, tunnels, trails, mini landscapes, clay creations and lots more. This was followed by artist days in the summer holiday programme called "Unplug and Play". Matt utilised natural and reclaimed resources to develop a mud kitchen for families to enjoy and revisit and Louise offered 'Dance in a Day' - creative dance and movement sessions, inspired by the fabulous gardens and children's stories. National Playday was celebrated in August with more outdoor creations and constructions that temporarily transformed the gardens with children's ideas and inventions.
