Design your bunting! Schools festival artwork inspired by Mary Seacole

#ATownExploresABook23 is inviting schools to create artwork inspired by this year’s book, Wonderful Adventures of Mrs Seacole in Many Lands by Mary Seacole, which we will print and display as bunting during the festival.
Templates and instructions can be downloaded from this page and printed to be handed out in classes for children to create designs using inspiration from our collection of videos, quote tiles and more.
The bunting will be printed and displayed during the festival. Please upload finished templates as soon as possible and before 22/03/2023. There are two ways for you to return the templates to us:
