There I was. All ready to do an article for the Burngreave Messenger. And was subjected to wearing an apron, surgical gloves and hairnet, in case I got covered in Monster slime!

Actors from the Paperfinch Theatre carried out a wonderful performance for the children who attended. Dr Bupe was the Grey team leader and Dr Batty was in charge of the yellow team. All the children were top scientists (the best in South Yorkshire) who were out in search of the Pit-Monsters.

The scientists needed to wear goggles in case they found a monster that would stare at you and turn you to stone. During the exploration, there were high levels of yukkiness.

Children were asked to solve puzzles, crack codes, collect feathers and outwit the monsters in this wonderful event created by The Paperfinch Theatre and all this took place at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground last month. All the children absolutely loved it.
