Britain’s Got Talent magician Josh Horus and children’s entertainer Captain Calamity will help banish the lockdown blues when Jewish News’ Virtual Family Fun Day launches this weekend.
From their comfort of their own homes, youngsters can simply sit back, stream and enjoy a variety of arts and crafts, science, animation, puppetry, football – and even a disco – on Sunday, 17 May, from 2pm to 5pm.
Captain Calamity kicks off the bill with all his fan favourites, including bubbles, magic and balloons, then at 2.35pm, get the glue, crepe paper and paints at the ready for Art Hub LDN’s creative corner.
Be prepared to be amazed by BGT finalist Josh Horus, who appeared last year on the ITV talent show with teen magic group, 4MG, at 2.55pm, followed by a cartoon masterclass with the JN’s resident scribbler Paul Solomons at 3.15pm.
Budding footballers can try out their skills and drills at 3.40pm with SFC Academy and then chill out with some puppet fun from Stories with Sparkles.
Rounding the events off, at 4.20pm, young and old can get your groove on with a disco from The Official Kids Party.
There is also a selection of great prizes up for grabs, including a football party from SFC Academy, a digital cartoon of your family from Paul Solomons and 25% off parties from Stories With Sparkles, Josh Horus and The Official Kids Party.
Editor Richard Ferrer said: “As we enter the third month under lockdown, Jewish News is delighted to offer this smorgasbord of fun-filled activities and entertainment and thank our seven performers for making this vision a reality. Paint at the ready!”
