About the Festival

When is the Festival?

Potential Plus UK’s fabulous festival for curious and enquiring minds runs from 17th-20th February, 2023.

What is the Festival?

vPlus is Potential Plus UK’s annual online festival of workshops and activities for children with high ability (often displayed through their curiosity, drive, enquiring minds and speed of thought and also known as high learning potential, gifted, more able) and their parents. The festival offers young people the chance to take part in activities with like-minded peers, creates a sense of belonging, reduces feelings of isolation, and helps maintain positive mental health. For parents it gives them the opportunity to meet with other families who ‘get’ their child and understand their experiences.

The vPlus festival is a fundraising event for the charity Potential Plus UK.
