Join us at 5pm as part of Cruinniú na nÓg for a voyage of exploration where local artist and facilitator Paul Timoney will bring one of Belvedere’s former owner’s – Charles Howard-Bury – back to explore the estate in search of ‘The Belvedere Bigfoot’!
Charles was a keen adventurer and explorer who travelled around the world to far flung places and brought interesting plants and animals back to Belvedere.
Charles will return to Belvedere Estate on June 12th for Cruinniú na nÓg to demonstrate some animal movements and secret explorer techniques that you can use to move through nature without being detected.
On his way he’ll be trying to unravel the mystery of the huge creature that some claim to have spotted on the forest walk recently… Charles, who has climbed Mount Everest, and doesn’t believe in Yetis, isn’t one bit worried though. He’ll use observation, concentration, patience and the power of looking carefully, to make drawings, gather evidence, and hopefully solve the riddle of The Belvedere Bigfoot!
