Dip your foot in the festival pool and explore LolliBop - an imaginative fun festival especially for Under 10 year olds, and you won’t even have to put up a tent!
Wanting to introduce your young family to one of summer’s large festivals can be daunting, so the LolliBop Festival (held at Regent’s Park, London from 5th to 7th August) is a perfect place to start. With advance tickets starting at £23 online, you can save more if you get more of your family and friends to join in the fun and go as a group. Advance group tickets of 25 or more work out at £18 per person, 1 year olds and under are free.
LolliBop Festival supports a charity each year and this year’s charity is Oxfam. Zoe Ball will be among the special guests working their magic in the Oxfam tent, so be sure to pop in and see what they are up to.
Among the many children’s favourite characters that will be there are; Charlie and Lola, Rastamouse and ZingZillas. Roald Dahl’s Museum and Storytelling Centre will bring the Twits to share their story and for the young historian or scientist in the family, Horrible Histories and the Science Museum will be joining in the fun too. There will be plenty of activities to keep little hands busy at the craft market, everything from puppets and crowns to jumping clay! The Enchanted Forest will capture your child’s imagination with creatures, fairies and wizards and Lollibook storytellers will bring books to life. Bubble Zone makes playing with bubbles extraordinary or your children could learn a new Lolli-sport to teach their friends when they get home. And if your family works up an appetite bopping away to the fabulous music at LolliBop Festival(check out the beach disco or Itsy Bitsy Strictly’s dance workshops), there are plenty of tempting foods to try. Every taste is catered for and child size portions are available.
