Remember when you were little, and a cardboard box presented a whole world of creative possibilities? 

A dragon, a castle, a spaceship and so much more! 


Boxville is a very special adventure happening for a weekend in September on Millennium Square. Step inside a land made entirely of cardboard where the possibilities are endless.

Curious minds and magical ingredients needed for the Medal of Imagination!

Come to the Land of Cardboard, and join the Engineers of Boxville and help to save Boxville from the unimaginable.

You’ll dance with cardboard crabs, battle with a cardboard dragon, and fly through a cardboard cosmos.

A team of Boxville engineers will help you along the way, with all the tools and skills you need to make musical instruments, mighty shields, and your very own space suits!

Everything’s made from recycled cardboard  - and you can take your new creations home with you at the end of the adventure.


This special interactive performance is brought to you by Sam Wilde, a sustainable theatre designer, and his creative team.

There will be 2 performances each day at 11am and 2pm each day lasting 50 mins each.

***Please note if the weather is rainy or extremely hot then its likely these events will not go ahead. Please check our social channels on the day for updates.***

If you’re unable to attend, but you’d like to get creative at home, then check out Sam’s website for plenty of playful crafting tutorials and ideas.

This project has been developed with funding from Arts Council England.
