A FOREST trail based off a BBC One children's show will launch in East Lancashire next month.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s magical children’s picture book, Zog, will be the new activity trail for families to enjoy at the Forest of Bowland

It comes following the premiere of Magic Light Pictures' animated adaptation, featuring the clumsy dragon, on the BBC this Christmas.

Forestry Commission England have now invited children to to learn lessons in Gisburn Forest, just like Zog at Dragon School, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey.

There will be reveal panels which have a hidden image that youngsters can find using a coloured lens in their activity pack and children will be able to win gold stars along the self-led trail.

Forestry commission beat manager, Martin Colledge, said: “The trail will be an amazing adventure, encouraging visitors to make the most of the winter season and beyond in our beautiful forest."

People will be able to buy a £3 activity pack, which includes a Zog mask, activity sheets a pencil and stickers.

The new trail will launch on February 15. Free downloadable activity sheets will be available from www.forestryengland.uk/zog
