Join, children’s author Addy Farmer, in creating our very own Brigg Monster story to add to the folklore of the area. They'll be folk stories about strange creatures from around Brigg; a walk to discover the natural surroundings of Millennium Green and a chance to make up our very own folk monster with art and craft.

Addy is an award-winning children's writer published with Walker and Random House. Two of her picture books were adapted for music and theatre. Her latest book, I Love You, Sunshine, was developed with Child Bereavement UK. Her next book, Little Peat, is about a lost and found peatland railway engine. She is represented by Darley Anderson Literary Agency.
