Junkfish are ready to provide our fabulous kids entertainment as soon as restrictions on events are lifted. We have a wide range of outdoor activities as well as tried and tested systems for delivering indoor crafts in a Covid secure manner. A Covid specific risk assessment is available for each event taking into account any restrictions and requirements at the time.
We can't wait to be back in action bringing some much needed Junkfish fun to families!
Junkfish run fabulous craft tents and kids workshops at festivals and events. We offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages, perfect for any family friendly event.
We offer a wonderful range of 'make and take' activities, all carefully prepared using mostly recycled materials and supervised by our helpful, friendly staff. Extra options include a fun dressing up area, relaxed family chill out area including playdough café, toys, books, etc and outdoor attractions such as our popular Junk Ball Run, giant garden games, hula hoops and circus skills equipment. We’ll also bring along lots of colourful decoration to make sure the whole area looks amazing.
In 2019 Junkfish were invited by the Flying Seagull Project to join the 'Cirque du Samos', a wonderful project bringing laughter and fun to children living in the overcrowded refugee camp on the island of Samos in Greece. Over the winter we made two visits to the island each time spending a week providing arts and crafts for the kids. Conditions were challenging but it was wonderful to see the pure joy and excitement our activities brought to the children.
Back in the UK we have teamed up with the Flying Seagulls again to provide craft activities for refugee children living in temporary accommodation.
We strongly believe in the importance of play for all children and hope to continue this work in future.
The right to childhood
Everybody should have the right to a proper childhood. This means a right to play, creativity and happiness. You can't dream of a future if you can't explore your present. So we're thrilled that Junkfish have joined us in Samos to put on the most wonderful arts and crafts activities. When a child goes back to their tent after a day with us, they have something they made to put up and decorate the tent. It seems such a small thing, but this gives these kids back some of the childhood that's been taken away from them.Posted by The Flying Seagull Project on Friday, 6 December 2019
