The Station Mouse

Online Event
Sat 3 Oct
14:00 UK
Free, ticketed

Being a station house mouse is an important job, and you’ve got to follow the rules in the guidebook! Maurice knows that he’s supposed to stay hidden during the daytime and not to talk to strangers, but when a small boy loses something important, he has to decide what’s more important - following the rules or helping someone in need. 

Learn how to draw your own station mouse.

Remember to have your paper and pencils or crayons ready.
