The families in Chesham have a chance for a free adventure after the Town Council and High Street Safari set up an augmented reality story trail in the town centre.

To celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign locally, from April 30 until June 12 the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail takes families through the High Street as players discover cute characters.

The engaging experience let’s families choose what happens in the story using a smartphone and see the characters like Sir Barnaby Beacon, as he visits seven memorable and magical friends, like Charlie Crown or Theadora Throne, come to life in augmented reality on their phones and take selfies and videos with them.

Although the trail is free and doesn’t require signing up or downloading anything, families have an option to donate to Help for Heroes to support veterans and their families.

Melanie Waters, chief executive of Help for Heroes, said: “We’re thrilled to be the charity partner for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons Trail and really looking forward to taking part in this innovative, community-based activity, as part of our plans to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee this year.”

The 45-minute socially distanced story trail is a chance to come into Chesham town centre and to discover parts of the High Street families might not usually visit.
