Digital artist Barret Hodgson has let his imagination run wild to create a fantastical woodland unlike one you've ever encountered in reality! Explore the forest and meet magical creatures and amazing plants – and what changes can your curiosity bring about?
Filled with neon trees, water that ripples and butterflies that fly towards you, this exhibition is... well... enchanted! Children can also free enjoy themed craft activities on their visit.
On your visit, enjoy our free linked activities, the beautiful natural environment or explore our very own real woodland on a lakeside walk!
* Please be aware that the session on Wednesdays at 2-4pm (last entry 3.45pm) is particularly aimed at those families with children with additional needs who require more support from our staff.
From 2-4pm (last entry 3.45pm) every Wednesday, we will be running SEND-friendly sessions in this exhibition to ensure everyone can have as much fun as possible. What this means is, we reduce the capacity inside to allow those with all types and ranges of disabilities to enjoy the event. We understand that everyone might need something different, so we ask for your patience to allow everyone the chance to enjoy this exhibition.
