Children are set to have some unique ‘doodletastic’ adventures with a special program of artistic activities at the Eden Project, Cornwall, England, this February.
Taking place from Feb. 11-19, the event sees the eco visitor attraction partnering with the team behind “The Brilliant World of Tom Gates,” the Sky Kids TV and book series by author and illustrator Liz Pichon.
During the event, brokered by licensing agency The Point.1888, children will be inspired to get creative Tom Gates-style by making their mark on some wacky food sculptures in the Mediterranean Biome and follow a brilliant bug trail through the Rainforest Biome leaving no leaf unturned.
“We are thrilled that Tom Gates is working with the fantastic team at the Eden Project,” says Liz Keynes, commercial director, TG Entertainment. “There is great synergy between our two brands and we look forward to an exciting program of events which will delight existing Tom Gates fans and families and bring his brilliant world to a whole range of new ones too.”
Entertaining and informative workshops will also take place with tips and tricks on how to doodle and draw and fun things to make and do. For a quieter moment, families can settle down with a Tom Gates classic or watch an episode of the Sky TV series in a cozy reading nook in preparation for World Book Day on Mar. 2. There will also be opportunities to purchase Tom Gates products in the shop.
“For over a decade Tom Gates and his brilliant world have been entertaining and encouraging children all over the globe to embrace their creativity,” says Kate Francis, living theatre producer, the Eden Project. “We’re very excited to be working with the team behind Tom Gates to create a half-term program that we are confident will both delight and engage families whilst they are here and then take that joy of being creative home with them.”
