He might have terrible tusks and terrible claws. And terrible teeth in his terrible jaws. But fans big and small can take a stroll through the deep dark wood in search of Julia Donaldson’s famous creature – at Beechenhurst’s new Gruffalo Spotters Trail.
Unveiled on Friday 23 October 2020, just in time for the October half term, the new Forest of Dean trail includes a new Gruffalo Spotter 2 app, fun activity pack and trail starting at Beechenhurst – with the chance for families to interact with some familiar characters.
As well as following social distancing guidelines and bringing hand sanitiser with you, Forestry England has issued the following advice for families:
Visit your app store and once downloaded, point the new app at special markers along the Gruffalo Spotters Trail and watch the characters from The Gruffalo come to life. Thanks to augmented reality technology, you’ll be able to interact with each of the characters as they appear within the forest, as well as capturing the fun by taking videos and photos with your favourites!
Head to Beechenhurst’s café or ranger hatch to buy an activity kit, packed with fun things to do to. Costing £3.50, inside you’ll find a Gruffalo mask and paws; activity leaflet; crayon and pencil; nature spotters game and stickers.
The 1.6km trail starts at the Beechenhurst visitor centre, with fun family activities, characters to interact with and also rubbings to complete.
