If you are brave enough,  come and see it’s head emerging, and join us at the launch party on Sunday 14th June, between 10am – 2pm at Magdalen wood, Wood Farm, Oxford OX3.  Listen to The Dragon’s story, make your own baby stick dragons, build your own den or hideaway and join in with the fun around the fire….
