We're going on a bear hunt!

Main entry, Swanston St

We're going on a bear hunt.
We're going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We're not scared.

Love the book? To celebrate the stage adaptation of the book We're going on a bear hunt coming to Melbourne this summer, we will be creating our own little bear hunt, hosted by children's television favourite Alex Papps, as seen on Play School! Together we’ll create grassy, muddy, snowy scenes from the story in a fun craft activity, followed by an action-packed reading of the story by Alex in Experimedia. Don't forget to come dressed as a bear for our costume parade. For ages 3 to 7.

Wade through the grass, splash through a river, and run for your life! 

This is a free event in association with Arts Centre Melbourne and Readings.
