Thanks to the Government, Potential Plus UK has received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, to offer our vPlus festival for young people, and for their parents, free of charge.
Most of the sessions will take the form of webinars and be delivered via Zoom. Presenters will be recorded, allowing people who have registered to catch up later if they miss the live presentation. Participants will not be recorded.
Explore our brand new festival website https://virtualplusfestival.org/ and discover the great sessions that are available. Registration is for access to the whole festival. Some sessions during the weekend will require separate booking, as they are planned to be more interactive; we also have a private Minecraft server (Java Edition, PC based), and we believe that Aliens from the Federation of Intelligent Beings may be setting a challenge or two during the weekend!
Registration for the festival is open now! https://virtualplusfestival.org/registration/
We hope that as many of you as possible will join us for some of our events during this 12 day festival and that we will be able to share challenges, fun and great sessions with you all.
