2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

(Uni)CORNUCOPIA(Land) Wild Beasts and Cute Critters Art Work

(Uni)CORNUCOPIA(Land) Wild beasts and cute critters

Blackburn youth zone art groups (8yrs-13yrs) invite you to an enchanted ark of the imagination. A multi-sensory secret garden of sculptures where mythical creatures and fairground fantasies play hide and seek in a multicoloured landscape.

Come along for a private peep, but remember…
You can only see them; if you truly believe in Magic!

Shane Johnstone has been working in residency with Blackburn Youth Zone‘s to create a piece of public art. Their vision of magical beasts has informed this giant unicorn art work made by the group from wallpaper donated by Graham & Brown.

You can also join a workshop where you can make a ‘Chatterbox’ decision maker to help you decide what to see next on the festival. Read more here!
