The Seabird Light Festival today visited St Agnes

Today the children and young people of St Agnes created a ‘shadow puppet’ show at the workshop on St Agnes. They performed their show to the community at the Turks Head Pub. The story ended with '...and they all lived happily ever after on the beautiful island of St Agnes'. These young people are stars in the making! The activity is part of 'The Isles of Scilly Light Festival 2014' which this year celebrates seabirds. This week long event is being delivered by ARTiculate and is supported by the Council of the Isles of Scilly Children’s Services and AONB.
