What do you do when the festival has been cancelled due to Covid 19?
Well the Festival Committee, did not want the 'Festival Family' to go a whole year without having a London Festival of Gymnastics experience so they decided to go VIRTUAL
This is how it worked
At 7pm on Friday 9 October The Festival was opened with a welcoming message from Tony McNicoll the compere for many years.
Then the rest was up to us – the followers on the Festival FaceBook page.
We started posting any photos, videos, training footage, memories and anything else we could think of from any Festival that we had attended from the past, they needed as many posts as possible over the weekend till the end which was at 5pm on Sunday 11 October.
There were competitions to win prizes too!!
We all invited people from clubs that are not in the group to join so that there was a great variety of posts.
This was a first for the committee and was it a success – YES IT WAS
So many wonderful memories – a weekend of laughter and a few tears as we all searched for photographs and video clips from years gone by and marvelled at other peoples posts.
If you missed it this weekend you can still see all the posts – I hope you have a couple of hours free – just go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/4828134054 and request to join the group. You will not regret it.
