Tiny Tigers is a family weekend being held during the Tiger Tracks event at St Pancras International on 16th and 17th March.
The weekend of 16/17 March will see the cubs take over. The smaller visitors can expect craft & dance workshops/performances, Indian drummers and face painting across the weekend. Tiny Tigers will also introduce a ‘Reading Jungle’ to the Arcade, with a rolling programme of readings by top children’s authors.
Many of the station retailers will be running exclusive tiger-themed competitions – (ask in store for details).
St Pancras International will also host some very special Tigers over the course of the weekend – courtesy of the “Tigers Are Not Rubbish” national schools’ competition. We invite children up to the age of 12 to make a tiger using unwanted recyclable rubbish. You can enter as an individual or get your school to take part – submission deadline is 01 March 2013. The finalists will be on display at St Pancras International over Tiny Tigers with judging taking place on Saturday 16 March by leading children’s author Lauren St John (pictured, with Virginia McKenna, Born Free). For more details and to enter – visit Tigers Are Not Rubbish.
More Tiny Tigers events will be announced shortly and a full programme of events for Tiny Tigers will be available for download from this page – check back in the coming days.
Get set for the world’s biggest tiger event at St Pancras International
St Pancras International is hosting the world’s largest public event to save wild tigers. Tiger Tracks features three weeks of station-wide activity, between 1st and 21st March inclusive. Musicians, artists, authors, conservationists, retailers and members of the public come together for the first time to save wild tigers. You’ll likely spot a famous face or two throughout Tiger Tracks too!
While many of the events will be free, we encourage station visitors to help tigers by donating funds to the Save Wild Tigers initiative with all profits going to the Born Free Foundation and Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) tiger conservation projects.There are an estimated 3,500 tigers left in the wild. If we do nothing wild tigers could be extinct within 10 years. If we act now we aim to double wild tigers in by 2022.
