The Worthing Town Centre Initiative is bringing a story trail to the Town Centre as part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
On April 30th, Sir Barnaby Beacon and his magical friends will descend on Worthing as part of a free augmented reality trail for all ages.
Seven whimsical characters – including Sir Barnaby – will be hidden at locations across the Town. At each stop there will be a QR code that, once scanned, will guide participants through the history of The Queen’s 70-year reign.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail – created in conjunction with High Street Safari – is completely contactless, allowing anyone with a smartphone 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!
Sharon Clarke, Worthing Town Centre Business Manager, said: “It’s important for Worthing to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne and this innovative trail will do just that, in a fun, family-friendly way. Not only will it be a good way to mark the Jubilee but it will also encourage more people to explore different areas of the Town Centre. The route is about forty-five minutes long but can be completed in more than one visit, or in between stops at our wonderful businesses !”
To get started on the trail, all families need to do is CLICK HERE to find more information and a map to the first ‘story-point’. It is completely free to take part in and players will win a free, digital fun pack at the end.
The trail runs from April 30th to June 12th.
