Newcastle Permanent gives families a Wiggly good gift this Christmas

Thursday, 10, December 2020

Newcastle Permanent and The Wiggles are spreading cheer this festive and summer season, creating an augmented reality at-home exclusive Wiggly concert experience that customers and communities can enjoy right in their own lounge rooms.

“So many little and big kids alike love summer, Christmas and The Wiggles, so at Newcastle Permanent we thought we’d bring them together to give our customers and local communities something special and fun to experience at the end of a really challenging year,” said Newcastle Permanent CEO Bernadette Inglis.

Anyone with access to a compatible smart phone or tablet is able to download the exclusive Newcastle Permanent at-home Wiggles interactive concert experience, allowing fans of all ages to dance and sing along beside The Wiggles to their favourite Wiggly songs, right from their lounge room.

“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,” said Blue Wiggle Anthony.

The experience includes six of The Wiggles best known songs including Hot Potato, Rock-a-Bye Your Bear and Say the Dance, Do the Dance.

“We’ve also added some of our favourite Christmas songs – Go Santa Go and A Christmas Story - to our interactive Wiggly performance at your place thanks to our friends at Newcastle Permanent,” said Red Wiggle Simon.

Newcastle Permanent Chief Customer and Product Officer, James Cudmore, explained the experience is simple and easy to use and allows for users to record and share their at-home concert with loved ones.

“All you have to do is grab your device, find the link, click to enter, follow the prompts, pick a song, position your kids or self alongside The Wiggles and press play. The experience will even record your performance which you can then save and share with your family and friends via email or on your social media,” he said.

“This partnership with The Wiggles is our 2020 Christmas gift. It’s a really great way for us to say thank you to our committed people, our customers and our local communities through a fun, interactive and positive experience that brings people together in a safe way,” said Newcastle Permanent CEO Bernadette Inglis.

“We’re giving this to our community as a special present from Newcastle Permanent, so to see people smiling and having fun while enjoying this experience would be the most wonderful return Christmas gift from the local community back to us,” Bernadette concluded.

Newcastle Permanent’s interactive at-home Wiggles concert experience is available to customers and the general public throughout summer 2020/21.
