This Spring, families in Camberley will be able to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and have a great day out with this augmented reality story-trail.
As part of local plans to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, from April 30th until June 12th, Collectively Camberley has teamed up with High Street Safari to run a free story-trail in Camberley. This innovative experience let’s family choose what happens in the story and is completely contactless, with anyone with a smartphone being able to take part for free. Players will not only discover cute characters along the route, but they also get to see them burst to life in augmented reality and take selfies and record videos with them!
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail is located at seven stops around Camberley to visit, positioned so that families can discover hidden parts of the town! Families will be guided on their trip by Sir Barnaby Beacon as he visits seven memorable and magical friends, like Charlie Crown or Theadora Throne, who have come to life from Buckingham Palace and gone on a trip to see Camberley!
The trail takes about forty-five minutes to complete but can be completed in more than one visit. It’s completely free for families and groups to take part in and they win a free, digital fun pack at the end. Schools are also being sent colouring sheets to enter a competition to have their works displayed on the trail, with £20 gift voucher being awarded to ten lucky national winners, as well as their winning entry printed as a specially designed commemorative poster.
The trail works without the need for families to download or sign up to anything. With safety in mind, it has been designed so that there is no need to go inside the venues, but some participating businesses are offering discounts and vouchers to come in while you visit.
The trail runs from April 30th to June 12th. To find out more about the trail, visit the website: www.jubileebeacontrail.com
