Join Zog on his magical forest adventure
By David Wood
Where: Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury
When: Until June 1
Following the success of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and Highway Rat trails at Forestry Commission sites across England, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's magical children's picture book, Zog, is the new activity trail for families to enjoy at Westonbirt Arboretum this year.
The trail follows the premiere of the animated special from Magic Light Pictures, shown on BBC One at Christmas.
Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy, dragon at Dragon School who is always striving to win a golden star.
Zog is learning lots of essential dragon skills including flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing princesses!
Forestry Commission England are now inviting children to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey.
As well as winning gold stars along the self-led trail, there will be reveal panels which have a hidden image that children can find using a coloured lens in their activity pack. Available to buy for just £3, the activity pack will also include a Zog mask, activity sheets a pencil and stickers.
Kit Beaumont, recreation manager at Westonbirt Arboretum, said: "The trail will be an amazing adventure, encouraging visitors to make the most of the winter season and beyond in our beautiful arboretum.
"We are very excited to be working with Magic Light Pictures again and are looking forward to families having a new and exciting reason to visit Westonbirt Arboretum this winter."
