Enrichfest 2020: 'over The Rainbow' Official Launch

Friday 5th Jun 2020

Denbighshire schoolchildren will be ‘Over the Rainbow’ with a six-month long learning journey.

Each year, Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment Initiative brings an annual themed festival to schools, including competitions, workshops, showcases, takeovers and ‘pop-up’ theatrical performances, to engage children and young people in learning across the curriculum creatively, in new and innovative ways.

This year’s Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ is based on the classic 1900 L. Frank Baum children’s book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The Magic of Oz

Most of us may be familiar with this timeless and charming story, but Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ will remind us of the joy of following the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy and her little dog Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, as they travel through the re-imagined world of Oz. 

Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ invites ambitious young adventurers from 11 schools across Denbighshire to travel along their own Yellow Brick Road to Oz, using their imagination, innovation and creativity, by entering a series of exciting and challenging competitions.

Magic Light Productions, the creative team behind Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’, will input work by Denbighshire schoolchildren into its ‘pop-up’ theatrical performances of ‘The Magic of Oz’, touring Denbighshire schools throughout June.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ promises to whisk all who take part on a whirlwind journey from Denbighshire to Oz and back home again.

Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment Initiative is a project run by Denbighshire County Council’s Education and Children’s Services to enhance pupils’ learning and supports young people, one of the Council’s priorities under its Corporate Plan.
