The UK’s largest children’s festival, Geronimo, kicks off on 27th to 29th May 2017 at Arley Hall in Cheshire and for the first time ever, families can enjoy a full weekend of fun and camping on-site. I have not been to this festival before but I have heard a lot of great things about it, so this year I really want to go. I think it will be so much fun for my girls. I have been given the opportunity to host a GIVEAWAY so one of you lovely readers can win a family day pass to this festival. If you would like to find out all the details about this giveaway, make sure you go to the bottom of this post.
2017 will be its 3rd year and it will be better than ever. It is action-packed with more performances, activities and acts than ever before. With extravaganzas including the breathtaking Rajasthan’s Elite Street Superstars and the death-defying Geronimo Festival Circus; kids can not only enjoy the show but have a go at trying out their circus skills too, learning the trapeze and other tricks of the trade at The Circus House.
It will also feature headline live stage acts including the legendary Justin Fletcher, Andy Day, Mr Bloom and pirates Cook and Line from Swashbuckle. I’m sure my girls will be so excited to see them in person.
Guinness World Record holder Jez Avery will be performing his world class PRO BMX and Mountain bike Stunts at The Show Ground Arena, along with hair-raising Fire Stunt Displays and knuckle-biting Shetland Pony Grand Nationals.
There will also be a sound track of street entertainment bursting with colour and sound; from Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners, a New Orleans funeral street parade meets 90s club classics rave, to Rockin’ Rhinos rocked-up nursery rhyme remixes.
Brand new to Geronimo is the Digital Zone, where older children can meet their favourite YouTubers and Gamers as well as try their hand at all the latest technology. The Gamers Bus is a double decker packed with the latest gaming tech to keep gamers of all ages entertained; from latest gen consoles to high end gaming PCs linked together in multiplayer mayhem.
Exhaust active kids with the Marine’s inflatable assault course, Parkour workshops, plus the UK’s first fully mobile, interactive 30 metre-long trailer cave. Little monkeys can enjoy the four climbing towers and a digital traverse wall.
Tiny tots can enjoy the fun too with Tiny Talk signing classes and sensory activities, along with Little Learners, the award-winning messy play and mark making class. Get groovy at Dance Baby Sling, fun dance classes using gentle movements choreographed to stimulate every area of the baby’s brain.
A huge range of street food stalls, artisan burger and wood fired-pizza vans will ensure even the fussiest of eaters can all be well fed and watered, recharged and ready to carry on enjoying the delights of this festival.
For the first year ever families can now camp in the specially designed child friendly campsite. The campsite features both options to either bring your own tent, caravan or motorhome, or take advantage of the many glamping options. Families can choose from a wide range of fully equipped, spacious and unique boutique tents, including Arabian Bedouin Tents, Cosy Cubes or bright, airy and affordable Tangerine Tents. With the option of booking all the kit needed to camp and the promise to be pitched with friends regardless of group size or when you arrive.
Now onto the giveaway. As I mentioned before, one of my lovely readers will have the chance to WIN A FAMILY DAY PASS TO GERONIMO 2017 FESTIVAL for either Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday admission. The winner will be able to choose which day suits their family best. In order to have a chance to win, you just need to enter the giveaway below. Good luck!
