WE Wonder festival:

We were delighted to be part of the first ever WE Wonder Festival; an enchanting and immersive family arts festival in the stunning grounds of Wentworth Woodhouse stately home.

Working alongside the team at Wentworth Woodhouse and Great Place Wentworth & Elsecar, we helped programme a whole area of the festival site: Grimm’s Enchanted Glade! This truly magical space featured activities and events to delight all ages and all denominations of being (from humans to harpies).  From pop-up poetry tents to immersive theatre performances written and directed by young people.  Wand-making and potions to professional bands performing songs penned by youngsters.  Immersive trails throughout the grounds featured a vast array of amazing writing.  Children and young people created all this during Grimm & Co’s free creative workshops!

WE Wonder Festival was a truly memorable experience for children, young people, and their families.  It was a spectacular celebration of the stunning work created by our young writers.

The music performed in Grimm’s Enchanted Glade was also part of a wider song-writing project.  This resulted in the album, Lyrical, available in our online shop.

Grimm & Co often bring their magic out onto the road, running enchanting and exciting creative activities at festivals and community events across Yorkshire, the Humber, and the North. Want to find out more? Email info@grimmandco.co.uk.
