Celebrate Christmas with The Wiggles Up Close and Virtual experience

The Christmas season is well and truly upon us and to celebrate Newcastle Permanent has been working on something pretty special to spread the cheer this festive and summer season.

Speaking with Bernadette Inglis, CEO from Newcastle Permanent, she explained,

'Ordinarily, at this time of year we would be hosting our Cinema Under the Stars events and supporting Christmas Carols around our region. Although these have been unable to go ahead this year, Newcastle Permanent still wanted to create something special to help ignite the Christmas spirit.
So, we decided there was no better way to do that than to combine cutting edge technology with Australia's most popular kids’ music group, The Wiggles."

Blue Wiggle Anthony shared The Wiggles excitement to be involved in Newcastle Permanent’s special, free Christmas gift for families.

“We couldn’t be more excited to come on board with Newcastle Permanent to share some joy with families who this year can’t enjoy many Christmas and summer musical performances they’d usually attend”.

Working closely with The Wiggles, Newcastle Permanent has created 'Wiggles Up Close and Virtual', an augmented reality experience that allows fans of all ages to literally ‘dance and sing with The Wiggles’ in their lounge room, at the park, beach, or wherever you wish, using your smartphone or tablet camera.

To get your kids dancing with The Wiggles head to Let's Wiggle.

It's super easy to use all you need to do is enable the AR sensors - choose one of the six Wiggly songs - get the kids ready to dance - press record and let the singing and dancing begin.

The best part is you can download the video to show your kids and of course share your Wiggly experience with friends and family.

Now all you have to do is get Wiggly!! You’ll also find the link on Newcastle Permanent’s website and social media pages.
