We are teaming up again with Manchester Museum to bring you a Halloween themed Virtual Family Event on the 31 October.
Our Family Days are all about getting together, sharing fun experiences and spending time with other families who just ‘get it’. We can’t see each other at the Family Days originally planned for this year, but we're excited about our new online family experiences.
These virtual events are for families, with children under 18 years, where a child or parent is living with a brain tumour.
You and your family will get to virtually meet the 'creepy' frogs and reptiles who live in Manchester Museum's Vivarium and take part in some spooky fun! The live animal team at the Museum will be sharing with us their favourite reptiles in the Vivarium which is is particularly notable for its large collection of Costa Rican Frogs and has been responsible for establishing important captive breeding programmes for some of the country’s most Critically Endangered species. You will have the chance to ask questions to the reptile handler and we will also play some 'spooky' games, so dress up in your best Halloween gear and join us for this fun, interactive and relaxed event which is free to attend.
We’ll be meeting online using the video meeting platform, Zoom. Don’t worry if you’ve never used Zoom before, we’ll send you full, easy to follow instructions to get you started and it’s completely free! We can even do a test Zoom chat before the event if you'd find it helpful, please just let us know. The Zoom waiting room will be open 10 minutes prior to the start of the event to allow you time to sign in.
Spaces fill up quickly, so please make sure you book your places in advance. This event is for the whole family and children need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, please do book a ticket for each family member. You’ll need a link and a password to join which will be emailed to you the day of the event.
If you are having any trouble signing up or if you have any questions please contact us or visit our website.
The Brain Tumour Charity is a UK based charity. We welcome families outside of the UK joining our online events, however, it is important to note unfortunately we do not have the facilities to translate conversations for any non-English speakers.
