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. However, much like our world, Grue is becoming cluttered and clogged with rubbish.
We need your help to examine this strange place, and to discover ways to help the fragile land. Working alongside an unexpected investigator, who will journey with you to find out where the music is coming from in the distant mountains, we invite you to collaborate with other visitors and see the impact we can have on the environment we live in - both in and outside of Grue.
