  • Festival of Code is back again this year. It is a unique event is for children aged 10 - 18 who want to explore coding and digital technologies.

    It is not a taught event, neither a summer childcare club, but rather an opportunity for enthusiastic youngsters to improve their computer programming and graphic design skills under the guidance of industry experts. During the week children will be supported to build computer programs, computer games and websites, developing amazing technical skills and broadening their knowledge of the digital world. The event will culminate on Thursday afternoon with an opportunity to showcase what they have built to parents, mentors, press, industry and expert judges.


    Festival of Code is run entirely by volunteers. It is not a taught event but rather an opportunity for enthusiastic youngsters to improve their computer programming and graphic design skills under the guidance of industry experts. Complete beginners as well as confident coders and designers are all welcome. The event will also provide the opportunity for children to gain confidence working alongside adults and learn more about possible careers in the fields of engineering and technology. By working together and sharing knowledge, participants will validate their digital skills, learn about teamwork and communication.
