It’s back and even better…Plantasia (the sequel). Last year we turned Catherine Street Inclusive Park into Wonka’s chocolate factory, Alice’s Wonderland, Peter Pan’s Neverland and Hogwarts. We need your help to create new, imaginative displays. We’ll make things, paint things, grow things and dig things and work together to make imaginative and colourful exhibits in the park. So, whether you prefer gardening, designing, painting or crafting there is a fun role for you. Outdoor fun for all ages and abilities, with a free picnic lunch in the park together too. Book your space and be ready for an adventure.
