Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake & Bad Things

Step inside a humongous chocolate cake and explore a secret larder, swishy swashy and splash splosh your way through a Bear Hunt. And dare you explore the Bad Things in the Dread Shed? Discover hidden rooms and brilliant clues that show what inspired Michael Rosen’s writing including his Grandparents’ sitting room and his classroom.

The experience focuses on some of Michael’s most popular books! Discover hidden rooms and brilliant clues that inspired Michael Rosen’s writing. A visit to the experience is led by one of our Story Builders who, in character, leads  the children on a Bear Hunt and facilitates play and story creation throughout the session. Younger children can enjoy a Bear Hunt trail, whilst older children can go on a fun fact finding mission on Michael Rosen and create poems of their own to take away. The experience offers a variety of activities for ages 0 – 11 to encourage imaginations, creativity and play.
