Back in the day (when I was quite a bit younger), I used to love a good festival. I love that feeling of spending a weekend outdoors with like-minded people, listening to music and taking part in new activities.
When I became a parent, I accepted that my festival going days might be over but that really isn’t the case because there are some fantastic festivals on offer in the UK especially designed for families.
This year we’re thrilled to be official bloggers for GERONIMO, the UK’s largest children’s festival, billed as ‘Glastonbury For Kids’ by the Daily Mail. It’s taking place over three days in the beautiful grounds of Arley Hall in Northwich, Cheshire on from 27th to 29th May 2017 and is set to be bigger and better than ever.
I’ve visited Arley Hall before and it’s a beautiful location with stunning grounds. I couldn’t think of a nicer place to spend a weekend in May. The weather should be nice and warm which is great as we’ll be pitching our little tent and camping under the stars.
You can take your own tent, caravan or motor home to Geronimo but if you want to save yourself the hassle then you can book a pre-erected themed tent for the perfect ‘glamping’ experience.
In fact, the entire weekend has a special theme and this year it’s Princesses, Knights and Dragons which if you ask me, is the perfect theme for kids. Everyone is invited to dress up and join in with the fun and they’ll certainly be plenty of it.
The entertainment line-up should keep all ages of the family amused. There will be two full Circuses, a Theatre Tent and a Show Ground Arena showing exciting displays such as; motorcycle, jousting and fencing.
Sounding good so far?
There will be also be stars of CBeebies, CBBC and ITV for younger children. And for older children, like Seb (who is 11 next week!), there’s a Digital Zone where they can meet their favourite Youtubers and Gamers as well as trying their hand at the latest tech.
That’s not all, because there are literally hundreds of activities for the whole family to take part in over the weekend.
They’ll be mobile climbing walls for fearless knights to scale, cardboard harp workshops that a princess would be proud of and a Bear Grylls Assault Course which I know Seb and I will be first in line for.
I’m excited just thinking about it! If Geronimo sounds like your kind of family festival then don’t wait to book because if you book before the end of January you can bag yourself an early bird discount!
Tier 1 family tickets are available from just £16.50 which also gets you a free wristband to the Victorian fun fair (yes I said fun fair!)
