FAMILIES will be able to immerse themselves in Cumbrian folklore, heritage and landscape on an interactive adventure this summer.

The immersive, multi-sensory exhibition in the Egremont gallery is based on Alex Mullarky’s children’s book, The Sky Beneath the Stone.

A cross-section of maps, texts, photos, natural curiosities and original artworks from local artists and photographers (children and adults alike!) will be on display.

Visitors can forge their own stories in the series of family-friendly events.

Curated and crafted by Heather and Yew (Alex Mullarkey and Jess Meager), a two-woman cultural organisation specialising in place-based arts and heritage events, the exhibition is supported by Arts Council England.

Alex and Jess are bringing some other events to complement the show on Saturdays August 6, 20 and 27.

The pair will be holding other summer events include a writing course for 16-to 25-year-olds.

'Write where you are' is a five-week course held on Sundays from July 31 to August 28.

Alex will talk through her own creative process behind The Sky Beneath the Stone, and help attendees to 'find and strengthen their own unique voices'.

Other events include Meet the Makers Day on August 20 when children and families can meet and talk to Alex.

On September 3, families can hear readings from the writing courses.

Coming this week is A Stitch in Times: the Season in Textiles. There are also gardening activities, a craft cafe and film shows.
