Library of Life Story Trails 2022
Head4Arts celebrates Earth Hour this year by launching four magical story trails in parks across the South East Wales valleys region.
Families and people of all ages can enjoy a walk in the great outdoors whilst listening to “The Library of Life” written and narrated by Tamar Eluned Williams. There will be an option to listen to the story in English or Welsh.
Each chapter of the story can be unlocked by scanning QR codes with a smart phone. Fun challenges will be offered along the way to keep little ones busy, such as taking photographs and spotting local wildlife.
Although based on the same story, the trails that will be placed in Parc Cwm Darran, Cyfarthfa Park, Garn Lakes and Parc Bryn Bach will have a local flavour to highlight the stunning natural surroundings in each location.
The “Library of Life” story trails will be available from 26th March to correspond with Earth Hour 2022. Led by WWF, Earth Hour is the world’s largest environmental movement for the planet that is symbolised by millions of people switching their lights off for one hour between 8.30 to 9.30pm.
Bethan Lewis, Assistant Creative Director Head4Arts explained that “These parks are perfect settings for a story that explores our relationship with nature and the importance of caring for the planet. We hope that the trails will encourage people to take notice of their local environment and will inspire them to take positive action to help look after it”
The trails will be available for a month, giving plenty of opportunities to take part over the Easter holidays. There will be a special day with enhanced activities scheduled in each park. These will include an opportunity to visit the mobile library of life van and enjoy free craft activities. These will be taking place on the following dates:
Parc Cwm Darran 10 am – 4pm on Saturday 26th March
Cyfarthfa Park 10am – 4pm on Sunday 3rd April
Parc Bryn Bach 10am-4pm on Friday 22nd April
Garn Lakes – TBC
