Over the weekend we traveled down to Portsmouth for a great day at the Portsmouth Guild Hall. The ‘Big Family Day’ was a great opportunity for members of the local community to come and join in with fun events inside the guild hall, the motto for the day was ‘Explore the Guild Hall’. Each room inside of the guild hall had different attractions that could be enjoyed by all age groups, including acts on the main stage from Cirque Bijou one of this country’s leading contemporary circus companies.
The main Auditorium was also filled with other attractions for families to enjoy including Face Painting, Skittles, Caricaturists, Palm Reading and storytelling from Dark Encounters as well as our Photo Booth.
The Auditorium was packed with families all day having fun, laughing and enjoying entertainment. The Photo Booth went down especially well with families wanting to have their free photo taken as a memento of their day. Kids having their faces painted and then coming into the Photo Booth with hilarious props created a great atmosphere of joy and laughter throughout Portsmouth Guild Hall.
The highlight of our day had to be the Dalek that was supplied by ThemeWorld that was wandering around the Guild Hall, children were intrigued by the realistic Doctor Who character and the fact that it actually responded to questions it was asked! Some kids more than others… we did see some hiding behind their parents legs.
