St. George's Day Celebrations

Come and join us for a day of fun celebrations on Saturday 20 April.


It's your once in a life time chance for an extraordinary encounter either a goblin queen and her huge and ancient dragon! Let go of reality and enter the world of fairy tale and myth as you become involved in goblin mischief and are entranced by the enchanting, smoke breathing, true to life puppet dragon.

The mystical duo are on a mission to discover why the dragon's eggs are no longer hatching. The goblin queen may tether her beast to you as she makes her investigations or you may be chosen to actually sit on and incubate one of the dragon's eggs! Oh and in case you are wondering the Dragon is called KIRINYA!

A fantastic opportunity to have our picture take with the Goblin Queen and the Dragon.
