Here’s your chance to make like a caterpillar in an interactive trail at The Lexicon this half term

Young visitors to The Lexicon can wriggle their way through a fabulous interactive trail, based on Eric Carle’s best-selling children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Following the same journey of the caterpillar from egg to butterfly, visitors will wind their way through an assortment of larger-than-life fruit sculptures (starting at Waitrose and finishing in Princess Square), a cosy chrysalis and a beautiful butterfly, all based on artwork from the famous book.

From February 11-19, pick up a trail leaflet and free piece of fruit (while stocks last) at Waitrose to start your adventure and pop the completed leaflet into The Lexicon post box to be in with a chance of winning some fabulous prizes.

The interactive mini adventure, will help to teach children about the close relationship between plants and insects as they search for items such as apples and pears to complete the trial.

Feeling hungry? Then make sure to check out the various kids eat free offers at Fuego (Fenwick), Las Iguanas, Marks & Spencer Café, Tangs, The Real Greek, Wagamama and Waitrose Restaurant.

You won’t want to miss this fun event so pop the dates in your diary now.
