Come and find out about all her adventures and let her take you on a Symbol Spot trail…what will you see, where will you go? With prizes to be won!

Learn how to read a map and a compass – collect your Symbol Spot bag and off we go...

The best thing is, for every ten places sold, Captain Alice will plant another tree in the Forest.

Captain Alice will be hosting X Marks the Spot workshops, before taking you out on the first half of the Trail, guiding you through the Park to find the plaques in your Trail booklet. This is a unique opportunity to learn about maps and cartography from an expert, as well as exploring the Park in a totally new way!

Suitable for ages 4 - 10.
