Befriend a beast, make a digital game and and create an adventure together at BMAG! 

A group of friendly furry animals are searching for treasures at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery: they are feeling lost and need your help! Can you rescue them by telling a story to guide them through a gallery at the museum? 

Join poet Roz Goddard, games designer John Sear and reading researcher Danielle Fuller for one of our 90 minute workshops. 

You will also be able to come and meet the beasts and discover their stories in the week after the workshops.

Workshop 1 is 11am-12.30pm and  Workshop 2 is 2pm-3.30pm. This is a family friendly workshop for children aged 8 and over. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The workshops are free but must be pre-booked.  Online booking will be available shortly.

The Babbling Beasts workshop is part of the Being Human festival taking place across the UK from 17-25 November. The Book Tickets button will take you to the Being Human website to book your free tickets.
