Dr Gummer’s Good Play Guide has launched an online family festival designed to ‘put play back at the heart of the home’, as families worldwide face school closures, lockdown, self isolation, and social distancing measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Play at Home Fest will take place across May 23rd and 24th and offer themed virtual stages with activities, entertainment, competitions and play.
Activities and performances will be live streamed via www.PlayAtHomeFest.com as well as across Good Play Guide social media channels, and the festival aims to support local businesses, as well as raise funds for the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring together children’s industries to provide an action-packed, fun-filled play festival during such difficult times,” said Dr Amanda Gummer, founder and CEO of the Good Play Guide.
“Play at Home Fest enables us to support the trade and consumers at a time where we all need to pull together, help one another and inject as much play as we can into children’s lives.”
Those interested in getting involved in Play at Home Fest should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
