    Sat | 21 November 2020 | 11:00 to 16:00

    This half-term we're welcoming the locked-down kids of Cardiff to our specially tailored Minecraft group play session. If your child is between 8 and 13 we are running a 2 hour, PC based creation session in the same world, with everything run by our friends at PlayFrame. And, if you make multiple bookings we'll throw in a free soft drink from our menu each for your kids!

    Please note, as this is based on PC, your child should be proficient at using a mouse and keyboard to move around the Minecraft world.

    COVID safety rules: Each child will have their own PC and will be socially distanced from the other players. Parents will be asked to stagger their entry/exit and if waiting on site will need to maintain social distancing throughout the venue. Any child over the age of 11 will need to wear a mask. PCs will be sanitised before and after use.
