Meet Og the Giant

Hello everyone, my name is Og The Giant! I will be your guide on a magical journey to the Imaginarium! I am a passionate Giant who loves to find new ways to look after ourselves, to stick together, and to share stories.

We’ll be playing interactive activities to warm up our brains, physical games to warm up our bodies
and singing songs to warm up our voices. Then, we will be using inspirations from ourselves, each other and our environment to let the creative juices flow! So let us take a deep breath and join together. A spark for the imagination, a leap into the mind. Let’s tell our unique stories. Let’s see what we find!

“I can’t wait to enter the Imaginarium and meet all my new Bluecoat friends! There is no better joy than hearing new voices and sharing new stories.”

What is Bluecoat Platform?

Located in our front courtyard, this family-friendly outdoor sculpture was designed by children for children! Our after school arts club Out of the Blue worked with artists Simon & Tom Bloor to come up with this fun, interactive sculpture for the whole family to enjoy.

This summer the sculpture is becoming a stage for our entire family events programme!
