The Turtle Moves (Again)

tm web

Following a successful event last year, we’re celebrating Sir Terry Pratchett and Discworld’s Glorious Revolution with The Turtle Moves (Again) on Saturday, May 20.

Make a mini golem or troll, decorate your own Maskerade Mask or Quantum Weather Butterfly or choose a variety of egg related treasure to create a lasting tribute to the Night Watch. If you’ve time, you can take home one of each!

We’re also delighted that Alternate Shadows Theatre Company will once more be joining us, bringing Sir Terry’s wonderful characters to life.

And the wonderful Cafe @172 will again be serving up Discworld Delicacies such as Sausagesinnabun, along with a boiled egg or two!

The craft workshop is free but children must be accompanied by an adult. No booking required.

11am – 3pm in Room 11, Rochester Community Hub & Library.

With many thanks to the City of Rochester Society for their grant support again this year, which enables the event to take place.

Rochester Literature Festival led two taster Reminiscence sessions in the spirit of the Memory Box project, which were very well-received and enjoyed by everyone who attended.
