Grow Festival Explorer Trail app and competition

Bring Grow Festival to life with this fun augmented reality app and be in with a chance to WIN an iPad!

A brand new outdoor arts festival is being launched in Corby this summer. Commissioned by Made in Corby and co-produced by The Core at Corby Cube, Grow Festival 2018 takes place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July. To accompany the festival, the Grow Festival Explorer Trail app has been designed for exclusive use where Grow Festival will take place, around Corby town centre, through Corby’s central woodland and around the boating lake.

Brought to you by Made in Corby and The Core at Corby Cube, the Grow Festival Explorer Trail allows families to follow an interactive walking trail, finding clues along the way. Once you’ve completed the trail you’ll need to answer three questions about Grow Festival to enter the competition to win an iPad, but make sure you keep your eyes open for clues as you walk around!

Whilst you journey along the self-led trail you’ll discover circular trigger points (check the app’s map for trigger point markers), when scanned in the app will bring a 3D water droplet character animation to life. When you find a trigger point, follow the instructions in the app to see something magical appear! You’ll be able to discover some interesting water facts from festival partner Anglian Water, exciting sneak previews of what is going to happen in the festival…and more!

Can YOU find all 7 points on the explorer trail?

The Grow Festival Explorer Trail app encourages families to spend quality time taking a family walk together as part of a digital experience which mixes augmented reality technology with the real worlds of nature and water sustainability. The app also signposts families to fantastic outdoor art experiences which include more opportunities to participate in real life water sustainability activities with Anglian Water at their Grow Festival Water Zone.

The Grow Festival trail launches in June 2018 and will end at the end of July 2018.

Suitable for little kids and big kids!
