Digital Kids Show is coming to Manchester

The Digital Kids show is coming to Event city on October 29-30th. If you are anything like me you would have asked
"What is the Digital kids show?"
The Digital Kids show is a two-day event which is the first of its kind bringing to life the exciting digital world in a fun and friendly format for children and parents. Our J is technology obsessed. Any computer, console or tablet and she's perched over the top watching or playing on it herself, now S is starting to get into technology too. That's not a bad thing in this day and age though considering when they are adults it will be a way of life for them, just look how its come on for us since we were kids. (In moderation though, we do still like the great outdoors and board games too!)

The event features six interactive zones including the 'Retro Tech & Gaming zone' where families can get hands-on with retro classics like Pac Man and Sonic the Hedgehog as well as the latest releases and Virtual Reality games.

The Digital, STEM & Coding Skills Zone is for any aspiring Mark Zuckerberg's out there. Families can get hands on with cutting edge toys that are a break from the norm, think robots and electronic Lego. This innovative zone will help to inspire children about the vast array of digital opportunities with fun, practical challenges and experiences, whilst opening their mind to the benefits of learning to code and one day developing the next Minecraft!

The Safe Tech Zone is all about helping to keep children safe online and will provide the very latest advice to stay one step ahead of the dangers and risks of being online, from cyber bulling to predators, hackers to viruses this zone is all about keeping your children, your tech and you safe online.

The Children’s Media Zone, highlights that kids want more than just TV, they want to immerse themselves in YouTube and apps that deliver their favourite content on demand. Come and say hi to your favourite on screen idols and see what they can offer you online.

As well as loads of digital fun, they’ll be lots of other fun on offer too with rides, a total wipe-out zone, scooter disco, digi disco, zip wires, soft play, a live entertainment show and performances on the main stage, a driving zone for 11-17 year olds to get behind the wheel and plenty to see and do including Minecraft Halloween fun on Sunday 30th October welcoming in kids in their best Minecraft costumes or fancy dress.

There will be EIGHT Minecraft megastars also taking centre stage at the event. Latest additions to the show’s exciting line up include Ethan Gamer, SalemsLadyM, Netty Plays and Mini Matt Smith aka MinecartMayhem who join AshDubh, LDShadowLady, Amy Lee, Tomohawk and Smallishbeans. Now I am going to be completely honest with you and say "I'm Sorry, they are just names to me, but hey, I'm an uncool mum who doesn't know anything about Minecraft".

Now I just know my girls will love this event, and I can see we will be there until closing when we are forced to leave so of course when we were asked to be ambassadors I didn't even have to ask the girls. So as an ambassador I will keep you up to date as I get more information.

Tickets are £25 per person but includes all the attractions inside. To check it out and to have a nosey check out the website here.
