Walter Lemonface Competition

To celebrate the arrival of this fantastic interactive cartoon at the Kirkgate, we held a family pop-up in Cockermouth and asked local children to get involved and get creative!

The task was to create a super heroic costume to help Walter on his adventures to save the world. We encouraged children to use anything they could find to make these costumes, pens, pencils, paint, bits of recycling!

A huge number of pre-school and school children entered and we were astounded with the imagination and creativity on display.

Three lucky winners from our age categories were announced at the live show and were awarded with exclusive Walter goody bags and a shout out from the stars of the show. Thank you to all of you that took the time to enter, we look forward to seeing more of your artwork in our next competition!
