About the event
The festive activities continue in Coal Drops Yard with a very unexpected visitor. Travelling all the way from the Arctic North of Canada to the magical winter wonderland of the Northern Brights in Coal Drops Yard, Bjorn the Polar Bear will be in the Yard on the 14th-15th December. Bjorn’s story began many years ago as an abandoned cub where he was discovered and befriended by an Arctic conservationist. Now Bjorn and his companion travel the world making friends, sharing their story and telling people about the fascinating and vulnerable world of the Arctic. Bjorn is used to people, so if you’re lucky enough to meet him then you’re welcome to give him a pat!
Together with his Arctic conservationist companion, Bjorn is the centrepiece of an interactive performance which is a cross between a petting zoo and a nature documentary. During the show the audience will find out about how polar bears survive in the Arctic and get the opportunity to interact with Bjorn; he’s very friendly and doesn’t object to being patted, stroked and tickled behind the ears.
