A joining in event for anyone over 7 years of age, yet some intelligent 6-year-olds have found these activities engaging. These include drawing ships and camels, singing, listening to storytelling and moving hands in the fashion of waves, fishes and guillemots. 'Awesomely mundane' - Independent.  'Delightfully inventive' - Observer.
