Joining Captain James Tea Cook and the Pirates of The Carob Bean is the most fun-est way to learn about vegetamabubble glue and other important vegdumacational medical necessities that keep our bodies working the way human beans’ bodies were meant to. Hands on cooking workshops, kitchen science, dancing, singing, crafts and general larking about. Very noisy and at times messy. Although we do try hard to accommodate those with ASD and sensory issues it can get loud. As we are dealing with food please ensure children arrive with hands washed, hair up (if appropriate) and no bogies. Young children will need to be supervised please. Not recommended for young children if they have a fear of big fluffy parrots especially ones called ‘Pirate Potty’ who does uncanny seagull impersonations. The Parrot likes kids but he’s never eaten a whole one.
