Spellbound Forest – A Family Fairytale Spectacular
The Forestry Commission and Wild Rumpus, the not for profit family arts organisation who produce the award winning Just So Festival, have come together to create a magical family fairytale spectacular arts event this May. Delamere Forest, Cheshire’s largest area of woodland, will transform into Spellbound Forest during the weekend of 19th and 20th May, featuring a myriad of family friendly arts, music, dance, and theatrical performance events.
Spellbound Forest will bring together artists and performers who are pushing the boundaries and developing truly breath-taking work for families and children. The work will challenge the best writers, artists and organizations to be bold and create truly magical and fantastical works adapting fairy tales and capturing the imagination of the audience.
Twisting paths through the forest will tell the twisting tales of English Fairy Tales through theatrical performance, music, visual art and dance. Men will become birds, tears become rivers, and children whirl at the sylvan ball. The participants of Spellbound Forest will contribute to the creation of a new English Fairytale, and sculpt a marvellous creation to live on in the forest long after the magic has faded.
If you are looking for something truly extraordinary to enjoy as a family, and something to enchant the children, take a trip to Cheshire and embark on a spectacular, enchanted adventure through Spellbound Forest.
Vernon Stockton, Delamere Forest Manager, said “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Wild Rumpus to host this very exciting event in the Forest on 19th and 20th May. This fairytale spectacular is one of many events for 2012 to encourage people to come to Delamere Forest for new experiences and to enjoy the forest trails, splendid scenery and stunning views”
