Following a hugely successful festival in 2016 at Tatton Park, the ultimate in children’s festivals in back for its third successive year and 2017’s Geronimo Festival promises to offer not only a great family day out but a whole weekend full of amazing acts and activities.
Taking place from the 27th – 29th May, Geronimo is back, bigger and better with a host of big names from children’s TV teamed with a plethora of outdoor activities, live shows and workshops.
In fact, Geronimo is now a family mini-vacation destination and will offer camping and glamping for guests who don’t want the fun to end. You can take your own tent, caravan or motor home or let Geronimo take the hassle out of camping with their range of themed tents available to suit all families.
This year there’s a change of location and Geronimo will be held in the stunning, expansive grounds at Arley Hall in Northwich, Cheshire giving you access to a whole host of new and exciting attractions set over a larger scale. The event will be now held over three days so that more people can take advantage of everything the show has to offer.
The magical family festival which has been billed as ‘Glastonbury for Kids!’ by the Daily Mirror, will play host to a huge array of TV stars who will take centre stage throughout the day including Mr Bloom and Justin Fletcher. In addition Dinosaur fans will be pleased to know that Andy Day will be making an appearance and little pirates can join Cook and Line from Swashbuckle in a rip-roaring pirate adventure! The theme of this year’s event is Princesses, Knights and Dragons, and families are welcome to dress up and join in the fun.
For older children there is a Digital Zone where they can meet their favourite YouTubers and Gamers as well as try their hand at all the latest tech. Geronimo guests will also be treated to two full Circuses, a Theatre Tent and a Show Ground Arena with lots of displays including motorcycles, jousting and fencing.
For active children, there’s so much to cram in, including mobile climbing walls, cardboard harp workshops and a Bear Grylls Assault Course. In fact, Geronimo has so much going on for children of all ages, I’m not entirely sure how we’ll fit it all in, but I’m so excited for Jack and Phoebs who will be in their element!
Take a peek at last year’s Geronimo Festival to get a snapshot of what’s on offer…
As we only live about half an hour away, we are still undecided about whether to camp or not (Phoebe and a tent, I fear won’t be a good mix!), butI know Jack and Phoebe are going to have a brilliant time come rain or shine as many of the activities will be under cover and in marquees.
If you fancy coming along too, Geronimo currently have an Early Bird offer that is available until the end of January with Tier 1 tickets available from just £16.50! As an added incentive, early birds who purchase Tier 1 tickets will receive a free wristband for the Victorian Fun Fair. But act fast as the Tier 1 tickets are selling like hot cakes and once they’re all sold, the Tier 2 tickets will be released that are more expensive!
