Narnia gets a rubbish makeover in church's CS Lewis festival
10:20am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
THE Lion, the Witch and the... cardboard box?
Narnia is coming to Headington but this time it will be made out of scrap cardboard.
Scrap recycling store Orinoco has linked up with Holy Trinity Church, Headington Quarry, to create the fantasy land in the church grounds.
It is part of the CS Lewis Jubilee Festival which starts tomorrow and marks 50 years since the author, who attended the church and is buried in its graveyard, died.
On Saturday from 10am until 5pm people are invited to work with Orinoco, based in Peat Moors, Headington, to bring Narnia to life in the grounds of the church.
Children and their families can join in with a range of activities from making shields and swords to transforming the woodlands around the church.
Orinoco’s resident Scrapmaster Howie Watkins said: “We’ve got lots of fabulous scrap materials all ready and a team of artists on standby.
“We’d welcome help from anyone who’s free to help with our design and preparation days tomorrow and Friday at the church in Headington Quarry, Oxford.”
