LIVING in a box - living in a cardboard box!

Youngsters have been getting creative with cardboard as a children’s festival gets under way in Sheffield.

Youngsters were given the chance to build anything they liked out of used boxes, including dens, streets and cars, during Camp Cardboard in the Winter Garden.

The event was one of the first in the programme of the Sheffield Children’s Festival, which will see youngsters showing off their creative talents until Saturday, July 14.

More exhibitions, performances and workshops are also planned, and local schools have been busy rehearsing and creating artwork in preparation.
