Get Animated! Northants

Educraft are working with Wakefeld Council this December in supporting the Government’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme which was set up with the support of Marcus Rashford MBE.

Our free 4 hour Get Animated! coding and activity workshops in Wellingborough are now available to book on behalf of children and young people aged 8 to 16 who are in full-time education and receive benefit-related free school meals.

Attendees will also receive a free, healthy lunch or dinner.

Free tickets are available from

Our Get Animated workshop includes…

  • Retro Computer Coding – Design and animate video game graphics using BBC BASIC, the language of the original educational computer, the BBC Micro.
  • Classic Games – Take a break from coding to experience the sounds and thrills of a 1980s video games arcade with titles such as Pac Man, Space Invaders & Frogger.
  • Physical Activity – Continuing the video game theme, our physical activity session lets you dance along to songs like the Super Mario theme and the Pac-man dance, or follow choreographed lightsaber sequences in time to music.
  • A Free Meal (and healthy eating discussion) – A nutritious, locally prepared plant-based packed lunch with hot soup and an informative and interactive talk about the benefits of a plant-based diet.
