    We brought the whole family along to the Giant and Bear play test last Saturday (28th April). We had such a fun time running around after the bears (my favourite had to be Spidey-Bear climbing across the ceiling!) My girls especially loved winning the game - we found 14 bears along with another family - as we then got to play the musical instruments and lead everyone up to see the performance! Watching the circus performers was fantastic - they were so skilled and very entertaining performers. And getting to see the company practise like that felt very special. Everyone has been doing cartwheels at home since and we're excited to come to a workshop and see the show when the tent is up. We look forward to more games in the summer! Ashley (Sharn 8, Leah 11)
