You may have noticed a new badge on my sidebar, I am really excited to have been invited to be an ambassador for a brand new festival for 2015, Geronimo. Geronimo will make its debut over the May Bank Holiday weekend (Sat 23 – Mon 25 May) a long weekend of organised mayhem just down to the road from me at Tatton Park in Cheshire.
Making the most of the beautiful woodlands at Tatton Park, the Adrenaline Zone will challenge even the bravest adventurers with a high ropes course, tree climbing, den making and a thrilling zip line that will reach speeds of up to 60KPH!
For those who like things a little less fast paced there’s also plenty of storytelling and the chance to picnic with characters from Alice in Wonderland.
Geronimites are also invited to join a host of big names on the Geronostage. Already signed up to appear are CBeebies favourite Mr. Bloom, who will be performing live twice a day. CBeebies ‘I Can Cook’ presenter, Katy Ashworth, will also be making three live stage appearances daily, along with daily meet and greets. More live acts to be announced soon.
Creative kids can join in the many craft workshops in the Funky Junk Zone. From cookie decorating to buggy makeovers, festival-goers are also invited to take part in Geronimo’s live art project throughout the weekend. Be prepared for a glitter overload!
Gasp in awe at the breathtaking aerial trapeze artists or laugh out loud at the clowns in the Circus Zone with regular shows taking place throughout the day. Fancy learning a skill or two? Head to the circus skills workshop and learn the tricks of the trade or catch the family classic Punch & Judy shows that will be taking place daily – That’s the way to do it! And keep your eyes peeled, you might spot a mini circus act roaming throughout the festival!
For kids who love a dance the Groovy Zone offers great activities including zumba workshops, dressing up areas, dance classes with Baby Ballet and even Geronimo’s own disco – playing all the favourite party tunes!
Geronimo is aimed at families with children aged between 2 and 12 years old. Geronimo Early Bird tickets go on sale on February 2 priced £16pp, with family passes starting from £75. To purchase tickets and for more information visit geronimofest.com or follow on Facebook and Twitter.
I’m going, hope to see you there too! Claire x
