Programme

The festival provides a programme of live presentations across the 5 days and creative challenges over the Saturday and Sunday.

There will be presentations:

  • For the whole family.
  • For families with children of certain ages but accessible by all families as deemed appropriate. They are all intended to be viewed together with your child.
  • For parents and carers, including some ‘round table’ discussions.
  • Some presentations will have opportunities for Q&A via the Zoom chat box (family to host only).
  • Most will encourage families to participate in an activity at home during the presentation.
  • The parent/carer round table discussions will enable parents/carers to share their ideas and experiences with others in the session.

The presentations will be recorded and posted later on the dedicated website so that ‘ticket-holder’ families unable to join the live sessions can watch and enjoy them afterwards.

Message just coming in from NASA: We have just heard that the Federation of Intelligence from outer space will be within communication distance during this precise weekend! We will be asking our families to help us communicate with them and solve any problems or challenges that might arise. More information will be posted on the dedicated website on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival.

Creative challenges throughout the festival will be centred around our communication with aliens from the Federation of Intelligence. It will include the opportunity for young people to create the Federation's Home World in Minecraft 

This will be a private, moderated server (PC based only). Your child’s Minecraft Username is requested during registration and only those registered will be able to participate.

The festival programme can be seen here.

The festival community is an integral part of this online event. A dedicated, private Facebook group for festival goers only will enable families to share their creations from the presentations and say 'Hi' to fellow festival goers.
