Grue 2022

By Wintercroft
Produced by ARCADE
Commissioned by the Old Parcels Office Arts Centre, Scarborough 

3 - 23 DECEMBER 2022, WEEKENDS & SCHOOL HOLIDAYS 
10.30AM - 4.10PM

OLD PARCELS OFFICE, SCARBOROUGH

Built by Scarborough's community and made entirely of recycled and repurposed materials, Grue is returning this December! It is a fantastical world created from positive energy and discarded paper; a wandering cardboard labyrinth of rooms to explore and wonders to discover. 

We need your help to examine this strange place, and to discover ways to help the fragile land.
