What do you get if you cross a rapping parrot with a cartoon masterclass and magic from Britain’s Got Talent? That’s right, the first ever Jewish News’ Virtual Family Fun Day!
Enjoyed from the comfort of their own homes, more than 5,000 people, young and old, tuned to three action-packed hours of drawing, painting, football skills, puppets and magic, on Sunday afternoon.
The JNFunDay, partnered with JLGB and JW3, kicked off with Captain Calamity’s slapstick set, complete with bubbles and balloons. Glue, crepe paper and paints took over, with Art Hub LDN’s creative corner, as participants had a go at being creative!
BGT finalist Josh Horus took to the virtual stage, with a dazzling display of trickery, before Paul Solomons, the Jewish News’ resident scribbler, led a cartoon masterclass involving a crocodile and a gorilla!
While young people are not able to go outside for a kick about with their friends right now, budding footballers got the chance to try out their impressive skills and drills with the SFC Academy!
Following puppet fun with Stories with Sparkles, the JN Fun Day finished off with The Official Kids Party, as young and old got on the dance floor to boogie their troubles away!
Jewish News editor Richard Ferrer, who hosted JNFunDay in a full tuxedo, with co-presenter Keely Price, said: “Our Sunday Fun day was an amazing way to banish the lockdown blues! We were overwhelmed with the response. Having 5,000 people tuning in live to all our fun-filled activities was a real thrill. Thanks to all our talented and creative performers and JLGB’s Keely Price for co-hosting. We will definitely be doing it again in the weeks to come.”
