Win your a dragon of your own at West Stow’s Dragon Fest
Young artists could win their own dragon as part of the West Stow Dragon Festival this month.
They are being invited to design a dragon based on the festival’s logo, which was drawn by Marvel Comics UK artist Jerry Paris, who will be judging the #MyDragon entries.
Eighteen Lego Elves sets, worth more than £350, are on offer, nine, ranging from £8.99 to £34.99, will be prizes for the #MyDragon competition and eight more sets are to be won at the festival on June 25 and 26 including two top sets of The Secret Marketplace, at £49.99, reserved for a Lego brick dragon building competition.
The Dragon Festival was inspired by a piece of Anglo-Saxon art displayed in the West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village Museum, called the Icklingham Die Plate, which features interwoven dragons.
Dragon Festival 2016 will include Beowulf and the Dragon costume re-enactments, dragon tales by the Theatre Royal Young Associates, and, sure to be the top draw this year, an appearance of internationally-loved, Epico the Dragon – a dragon helping people ‘connect, play, share and celebrate life’.
