The Lost Beasts
free family event
Saturday 29th June
1 – 4pm
at Buxton Museum
Making carnival masks and hats inspired by our very own scimitar-tooth cats,
cave lions, wild horses and mammoths.
Once upon a time and not so long ago there were wolves in the Peak District hills, wild boars in the woods and beavers in the rivers. Once there were wild ponies here, and cave lions, reindeer and bears. There were scimitar-toothed cats and straight-tusked elephants.
Before that, long and longer ago there were strange sharks swimming in ancient limestone seas.
What wonderful animal would you celebrate?
Join us at the Museum to make animal masks and hats to wear in Buxton Carnival – or just to wear and enjoy and relish the animals that lived here once (or, for unicorns, maybe “should have lived here once”).
Celebrate the ancient animals of the Peaks and join Two Left Hands in the Buxton Carnival Parade. A BM125 workshop as part of the celebrations for the Museum’s 125th anniversary
This event is free, no booking or tickets needed. Children under 7 should bring a grown-up with them and you need to allow 45 minutes to make an animal hat
