A majestic polar bear is a star of the show at the Eden Project’s Passport to the World event this week.

The lifelike, animatronic polar bear is part of a captivating tale told by Eden’s renowned storytelling team taking place every day of half-term.

The storytellers are on hand to help visitors learn about the mysteries of the Arctic, taking them to a world of ice and snow where humans and animals can have a strong, unbreakable bond.

Each visitor is issued with a “passport” so they can collect stamps along the way, charting their progress around the world.

Other activities during this half-term include beautiful flamenco performances and workshops from dancer Claudia Caolin and guitarist Jaime Cantera in the Mediterranean Biome and blowgun-training workshops in the Rainforest Biome.

Visitors also have the chance to take part in a Rio de Janeiro-style carnival across the Eden site.

Workshops to make instruments and carnival clothing and accessories take place in the Mediterranean Biome before twice-daily carnival parades through the Eden site, culminating in a trip to the Rainforest Biome.

Show times for the storytelling sessions are 11.30am, 1pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.

Passport to the World takes place until February 24 and all activities are included in standard Eden admission. For more information or to book tickets, see
