Story Giants of Eden – Help required


PACT has obtained grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to run a Story Giants of Eden project in many schools through Penrith and Eden District. The aim is to find local stories and make a champion giant story teller to show on May Day. The project will run workshops in 18 primary schools to find local stories and use a real giant puppet as each school's champion story teller. The giants will be shown at the Penrith May Day Parade in 2011 and an exhibition will be shown at Penrith museum.
