The Nutcracker, the Gingerbread Village


I'm working on a very unusual project at the moment. W5 in Belfast have asked me to design a fantasy walk through experience for Christmas. The theme is taken from the ballet of the Nutcracker.
This rough shows the Gingerbread Village with Clara and the Nutcracker Prince in the foreground.
There will be various free-standing "pop-up" elements so it will be very interesting to see how it actually works when my illustrations are blown up and all put together.
W5 has a great team so I'm hopeful that it will all come together nicely.

What an interesting idea this sounds like: we'll be walking into the pages of a picture book when we visit, is that the idea? It would be a wonderful theme for a children's library too.

When is it scheduled to open?
