Experience life in front of the camera as Colour Box Explorers. We will also be looking for illustrators to create the Colour Box World our Green Screeners inhabit, so if acting isn’t for you, we need your creativity behind the scenes! #showbiz


We are thrilled to welcome Ewan Sinclair and Bal Cooke’s other worldly Soundplay Dome. A multi sensory audio-visual pop up space, designed with accessibility and inclusivity in mind. The Soundplay Dome is creative playground where sound, animation and interactive technology collide.

Music. Movement. Play. 


Customise explorer flags and create your own binoculars with the Colour Box Craft Crew. 


Fortune favours the brave in this collection of animated shorts from around the world. Overcoming fears, discovering wonderful lands far from home and climbing mountains to chase the clouds away! A colourful world awaits, if we dare to step outside the box! 


Look out for our Colour Box Explorer Reporter and Camera Crew who will be conducting interviews throughout the day.
