Creative Kids and Robb Johnson confirm for Brighton
Creative Kids proved a huge hit at the Bristol Vegan Fayre 2008 and it would have been rude not to have invited them to Brighton – and we are thrilled to announce they will be present in full effect in the Kids Area on March 21st 09 at the Brighton Show, along with one of their UV dens as well as a display and workshops involving their Zambia Project, where they have been all winter bringing smiles and lots more to kids across Zambia.
Creative kids run workshops to encourage children and families to use their imaginations and engage with the environment that surrounds them. Activities are for 5-12yrs with an Ultra Violet Underwater den.
The dens offer children a unique experience inside a magical underwater world with fish, shipwrecks and sharks. There are pads, to jump on, which trigger sounds and different textured objects to be explored.
All Activities use UV reactive materials, which glow up inside the den. Including; puppets, mask making, face painting, hats, costumes and painting.
LET YOUR IMAGINATION COME ALIVE,
EXPERIENCE YOUR SENSES AND PLAY!
Robb is a singer songwriter with a deep interest in the vegan lifestyle and has kindly agreed to play at the first ever Brighton Vegan Fayre March 21st, with 3 short sets in the Campaigns Room, Kids Area & The Main Stage. Rob is Brighton based (well, Hove actually) and is guaranteed to draw a large crowd! In his own words...
"‘I've played the London Vegan Festival (this year they kindly said I was the - ahem - headliner) & released an album with Ethical Wares called "MaximumRespect" (Irr047) entirely focussed on animal rights / vegan issues...I've been vegan for 19 years...and I have a new album out too"
