The Dragon Awakes at Chapel Gallery, Ormskirk

This summer as part of the Parbold Street Festival, Parbold residents worked with author, Sarah Schofield and artists, Andy & Sharon Shaw.  Through visual arts and creative writing workshops they developed the story and characters of Sunny the Dragon who lives deep inside Parbold Hill and Tia, a little girl who lives in a teacup.  Does she save him when he fails to appear?  Could this be the start of a local legend?

The stories and characters have all been on show at Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk. Here's a little taster in case you missed it!
