The Minecraft Salisbury Event – Update

The project launch to bring parents and children together in an attempt to build the whole of Salisbury virtually in Minecraft is fast approaching and seeing as though so many great things have happened recently, I thought it would be good to summarise updates.

Posters

After the announcement online, the event was fully booked up in a matter of hours. I have never known anything I’ve organised to gather pace so quickly the way this event did. As a result, the posters I had made to help boost interest weren’t required. Due to its popularity, the event will be run again next year, so the posters won’t go to waste. Roll onĀ Sunday 8th December!

Cathedral Plans

The lovely people at Salisbury Cathedral have kindly sent through the plans for their building. Realising that the cathedral is the starting point of the project, it is hugely important that it is built it in the correct proportions and to scale. These plans will help enormously, thank you!

Microsoft

I’ve even connected with Microsoft and, well, came away with a badge and a whole bag of excitement. More to follow.

Television and Radio

The Salisbury Minecraft project was featured on TV and also radio. Out of the two, I think live radio was the scariest. You can listen to the breakfast broadcast here.
