Our own Digital Kids are so excited to be able to attend this exciting show. It’s easy to see why! As Aisha Tilstone, Producer, commented: “It’s not every day you get to meet such an amazing line up of YouTubers and have an awesome family day out. This event is all about having fun with tech and enjoying the opportunities it provides us. We wanted to keep the event in Manchester so previous and new visitors enjoy an epic day of seeing live shows with mega YouTubers and TV stars, amazing entertainment, adrenaline-fuelled activities and interact with new and emerging tech and games for the whole family.”

Attendees at the Digital Kids Show will be able to enjoy active fun showing off their skills at a Micro Scooter disco, parkour zone hosted by Salford’s own Evolve Parkour. To get you into the festive spirit, there’s even an ice rink for all ages.
A dedicated family gaming zone will provide gaming fun for the whole family. It includes a Gamer Bus, Minecraft Hub and family friendly gaming, Augmented Reality and VR.

7-11 year olds will learn about staying safe online in fun and interactive DigiSafe Cadet workshops from Barclays Code Playground. Their parents can attend sessions with Barclays Digital Eagles to learn about keeping children safe online and understand current themes of online activity popular amongst this age group.


Fans will have a rare opportunity to see world-renowned gaming legend, Ali-A, who has 13,500,000 subscribers across his two channels! Ali is one of the world’s most popular and influential producers and is at the forefront of the YouTube revolution.
Joining Ali-A is celebrity YouTuber, Oli White, who has nearly 5 million subscribers across three channels. Oli is best known for his challenge and collaboration vlogs with some of the biggest YouTubers in the world as well as the Brothers Do Science series alongside his brother James. He’s the author of two books and is a regular on TV shows like Junior Bake Off and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Prolific Minecraft artist and YouTube star, The Wizard (Wizard Keen) will be holding Minecraft masterclasses for Digital Kids Show attendees. The Wizard, who possesses more than 48,000 subscribers on YouTube, is known for his Minecraft creations and videos, and for starring alongside Stampy on the Wonder Quest series.
8 year old YouTube star, Beau Koster, from Beau’s Toy Farm, will also be appearing. He has over 7,700 subscribers on YouTube where he posts reviews of toys and games. He has recently appeared on TV’s Little Big Shots with Dawn French.

Since the original show announcements, they have added such huge names to the line up, including iBallisticSquid, Clare Siobhan and Amy Lee and Big B Statz. Oh and Britain’s Got Talent’s most prolific winners, Diversity, have been announced as headliners!

  3. This looks like a fantastic event for the family! Although, I am now feeling a little old as I don’t know who everyone is.

    1. That’s a sign of being young Emma! It means your kids aren’t old enough to be into YouTube and gaming yet!

    1. Ooh which day are you going? We should look out for you!

  6. Looks like such a cool event but other than diversity I’ve not heard of any of the other ‘celebs’ x

    1. They are more on YouTube than TV, that’s probably why. When you have kids who are into YouTube and gaming, it opens up a whole new world!

  7. My girls are too young for this but it sounds like a great event for families with older kids. I’ll have to see if it is still around in a few years as it is quite local to me.

    1. I’m sure it will be Claire, it’s very popular. You’re lucky to be so close to a place with such fab events x

  8. What a great event, so on trend for kids. I hadn’t heard of it. Lol I’m with Rhian with regards to the celebs. I’m so out of touch

    1. I think it just depends what your kids are into, that’s the only reason I’ve heard of any of them!

  9. Oh this sounds so fun! Great little discount too! x
