I spent a glorious weekend in Oxford, working with 700 children (not all at once mind you) at Zodiac 09 – a huge festival celebrating Oxfordshire’s Cub Scout movement. The organisers reckoned there were over 2500 children camping out and enjoying an extensive variety of activities. The sun shone brightly all weekend and by 4pm on Sunday we had produced a gigantic collaborative caterpillar. Once it’s fired, we’ll post a photo of the beast on the blog.
