From Monday 27 February to Wednesday 1 March, An Lanntair’s auditorium will be transformed into a bug’s paradise. Entitled ‘Air falach sa ghàradh : Secret garden’, the creative event will take over 250 children aged 3 – 5 on an exploration of mini-beasts through storytelling, music, movement and making.

This most recent event is part of An Lanntair’s wide reaching Education and Outreach programme which offers creative learning opportunities across all art-forms.  Previous events which have been enjoyed by local pre-school children have been themed on Space, Under the Sea, Circus and Jungle.

While all the group sessions have all been booked, a public session is available on Tuesday 28 February from 2.30 to 3.30pm.  Tickets are Free, but must be booked in advance.

The event is supported by the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation which is a registered charity, working to provide financial support to innovative and sustainable causes across the North, North East and the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The Foundation supports a huge variety of projects covering 6 categories: education and training, health, care, sports, arts & heritage and conservation & environment.

Kay Jackson of the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation said

‘Reaching out into the Highlands and Islands has brought a number of interesting and very worthwhile community projects to the Foundation … I have a feeling this particular educational initiative by An Lanntair will prove a great hit with youngsters … as well as adults … in the Western Isles!’
