LATEST UPDATE DATE:
17th March 2020
In response to the government's latest advice on avoiding social contact and limiting public gatherings, we have taken the extremely difficult and emotionally charged decision to close the Rainbow Factory with immediate effect and until further notice. We are therefore very sorry to advise that we will not be able to at present be able to host any school trips, events, parties or holiday club activities.
We can assure you; we have not taken this decision lightly, however we all have a role to play in attempting to limit the spread of the virus and I hope you will recognise that we must put the health and safety of the wider public first.
As this is such a fast-changing situation, it is impossible to say when we will be able to reopen our doors, however you can rest assured, we will be back in touch as soon as we do.
Check out our blog!
We know how difficult this time is for all, therefore we have started uploading ideas which you can use to engage and inspire your children through creative play!
No stress, just lots of fun for all ages :)

How You Can Help Us
If you can, please support us!
A lot of you have been asking if there is any way you can support us through this period of difficulty (thank you so much for caring, it means the world to us!!).
We will try our hardest to ride this wave as much as we can financially and look for support from the government where possible, however if you do want to support us through this unknown territory, then please buy a Gift Voucher, which can be used at any time once we open the doors again!
You can buy £5, £10, £15 and £20 - all vouchers can be redeemed against any of our products and to say a huge thank you for supporting us, we'll offer you a free cuppa on arrival :)
Isolating Pen Pals
We're dedicated to the mental health & wellbeing here at the Rainbow Factory, so in light of the situation, we've created a group called 'Isolating Pen Pals' - this group is to help connect children across the world, to promote and support mental health & wellbeing while we're all in lockdown!
We're calling it #IsoPals for short :)
Check it out and become part of it here:
Explaining the Coronavirus to kids
"Hello! I am the Coronavirus"
After a lot of talk surrounding how to explain to children what's happening in the world with regards to the Coronavirus, we searched the net for ideas and inspiration that we could share with you - and we found this!
We hope this helps! Please share :)
