Is it possible to create architecture out of nothing more than dreams? How about some cardboard, sticky tape and string? Town planners, master builders and architects extraordinaire are invited to create a mega mini city for everyone to explore.

Bring a box from home (an empty biscuit, cereal or teabag box for example) or grab one of ours, and we’ll turn this into a diorama to add to the sprawling city! Pick up a torch and explore our imaginary city - see what stories you can find!
