The Squiggly Wiggly Giant Squid
After a long journey from deep beneath the sea, our playful Giant Squid has made it's home here at the Yard and has brought some friends.
The Giant Squid is an interactive and acoustic installation through which people can communicate (speak & hear) with each other. It radiates light to offer a surprising element at night.
Cast your net and see if you can capture its six sea creature friends that have escaped the harbour and are playing hide and seek.
Collect your free trail passport from any cafe and restaurant in the Yard, find all its friends and collect six letters to spell a nautical word and claim your reward.
Have fun explorers! The Squiggly Wiggly Squid will be on the lawn from May until September.
