A Celebration of Where the Wild Things Are
Rise up, lovers of Where the Wild Things Are.The Big Wild Rumpus is a nationwide campaign to celebrate the nation's love of the Maurice Sendak book, Where the Wild Things Are on 13th June 2015.
This summer, wild things will be gathering in villages, towns and cities, in woodlands, libraries, theatres and back gardens on the 13th of June at 11am to read the book aloud and have a Big Wild Rumpus in the middle. Gnashing of terrible teeth, rolling of terrible eyes and showing of terrible claws will be actively encouraged as young and old alike unleash their inner wild things.
After the reading of Where the Wild Things Are there will be a series of workshops supported by Bury Library and a screening of animated shorts of some of Maurice Sendak's other much-loved stories.
