The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail sees participants find seven cute characters that have come to life from Buckingham Palace by scanning unique QR codes on a smartphone at venues in the city centre.
They choose how the story evolves and discover the characters at specially located places along the city centre route.
Follow Sir Barnaby Beacon as he meets magical friends including Charlie Crown and Theadora Throne on their visit to Lichfield. See them burst to life in augmented reality and take selfies and record videos with them!
Run by Visit Lichfield and outdoor experience developer High Street Safari, the trail will take around forty-five minutes to complete but can be followed in more than one visit. Free for families and groups it also boasts a digital fun pack as a prize.
Schools are being sent colouring sheets for a competition to have their works displayed on the trail, with a £20 gift voucher being awarded to ten lucky national winners, as well as their winning entry printed as a specially designed commemorative poster. The closing date for the competition is 12 June.
The story trail runs from 30 April until June 12 offering a safe, socially distanced activity for families in Lichfield city centre.
It will help parents encourage their children to have a screen-time break and do some walking while enjoying a reward at the end.
The trail has been designed so that there is no need to enter venues, although some participating businesses will be offering discounts and vouchers to those taking part.
Thanks to The Hub at St Mary’s, The Kitchen Shop, The Bureau, The George Hotel, The Lichfield Garrick Theatre, The Little Green Frog Café and Friary Shoes for participating.
