Get Animated! Stockport

Educraft are working with Wakefeld Council this December in supporting the Government’s £220m Holiday Activities and Food Programme which was set up with the support of Marcus Rashford, MBE.

Our free 3 day Get Animated! coding and activity workshops in Woodley 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.
