As I mentioned in my previous post, we’re planning a really groovy summer for the boys this year.
One thing that we thoroughly enjoyed last year was the Lollibop festival in London. Have a read about our time there last year and see why we are keen to return!
I would really recommend you go if your children are under 10. There’s something for everyone and if the weather is kind the day is better still. This year the festival looks even more awesome than ever – just check out some of these attractions! This is what Lollibop have to say about their plans for this year…
LolliBop, the UK’s biggest kids festival, has announced it’s most exciting line-up to date with CBeebies Superstar Justin Fletcher headlining on Saturday and Sunday and Mister Maker taking over the main stage on Friday.
The event, which this year takes place at Hatfield House, August 15-17, also welcomes stars of CBBC’s Big Friday Wind Up Sam & Mark to LolliBop for the first time.
Other LolliBop ‘newbies’ include Thomas & Friends with a bespoke interactive play experience created especially for LolliBop, Chris & Pui with their Mini Roadshow, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery of the Pyramid, Cook and Line from Swashbuckle (Fri & Sat only) and Michaela Strachan’s Really Wild Adventures Show.
LolliBop is delighted to announce it’s first ever Disney experience with the Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic present a Silent Disco!
Creative kids are invited to Join In with Southbank Centre, in a brand new space for Lollibop 2014. Whether you love, drawing, playing, singing, dancing or creating there is something for all under 10s and their families to enjoy. Southbank Centre is a world-famous arts centre on the South Bank of the Thames, with art and activities inside and out that encourage everyone to become involved in the arts in new and creative ways. At Lollibopthere will be music, dancing, fashion shows, DJs, Pirate school, den making and plenty of takeaway crafts.
The ever-popular Skylanders returns to LolliBop to launch the fourth installment of its award winning franchise – Skylanders Trap Team™. Kids can expect the opportunity to play the brand new game before it’s released later in the year.
Other big names for pint sized festival goers; include Mr. Bloom, Andy Day’s Live Show, Postman Pat® Mini Show, The Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre and Science Museum.
Making the most of the fantastic gardens and woodlands at Hatfield House, National Geographic Kids have planned a Woodlands Takeover, with engaging activities including games, prizes and exploring natural habitats!
Other activity confirmed, includes Beano Events, cookery workshops in the Lolli Kitchen, LolliBop’s first Inflatable Village, a Good Old Fashioned Sports Day, dancing session with Itsy Bitsy Strictly, Ready Sheddy Disco and Baby Ballet, Footballing Skills, Beat boxing, face painting and balloon modeling classes.
I, for one, am really excited about going back for a second time. This year I’ll plan our day more wisely and try to fit everything into our time at the festival although it’s probably not possible to do absolutely everything!
