Back for its third year, popular immersive installation, Grue, by Wintercroft, returns in a new home!

A magical world, built by the community and made entirely out of recycled and repurposed materials.

This year Grue can be reached through a magical door which can only be accessed on the top floor of Scarborough Library.

Grue invites you to step into a fantastical world and explore a series of enchanting landscapes. Travel through dense forest and across icy regions on an important mission, discovering forgotten creatures both big and small.

With your help, this wondrous world can be documented once and for all and a lost librarian can find the final chapter of their book, reclaim their story and place it on the library shelves for good.

This year Grue has live actors, but don’t worry - nothing scary or gory here, no surprises or jump scares!

Grue is free or Pay What You Can to visit and provides a welcoming wintery experience for all the family. There are hot drinks and snacks available on site.

Grue is designed by Scarborough artist, Steve Wintercroft - who has worked with Sir Paul McCartney, Bjork and Tracey Emin, and produced by local arts charity ARCADE.
