Lollibop news keeps on coming

Do you know, as an appreciator of good business and genius marketing I love it when a family friendly event that’s already packed with entertainment keeps surging forward. Every time I receive a press release from Lollibop, I have a new reason to smile.

This one is announcing them joining forces with the Southbank centre to create a brand new area and it sounds really really fabulous. Curated by Southbank Centre, the area has been developed to create an experience of interactive, engaging and creative fun family experiences.

Take a look at the highlights of this family friendly festival: 

Join In with Southbank Centre, include a Pirate Training School, a Giant Dressing Up Box, Bollywood Dance, Walkabout Whiskers and Junk Orchestra. How fab does that sound?

Activities programmed specifically for the under 3s include singalong sessions with Voicelab, Rug Rhymes from the regular sell out session from Southbank Centre’s Poetry Library, dough modeling, soft play and baby yoga.

Older kids will love the Big Sing workshops, quick flash hula-hoop performances, Hip Hop Dance with Zoo Nation, ‘one of the uk’s hottest dance companies’, beatboxing and Southbank Centre’s regular storyteller Vanessa woolf.

Performer, DJ, presenter and costume designer Boogalu Stu will be hosting a tent throughout the day and searching for wannabe pop stars to create an instant pop video with his Pop Magic team. LolliBoppers will be invited to assist in the song writing and recording process to create an instant internet sensation and the finished song will be uploaded online for the world to see.

The City of London Sinfonia create dynamic and engaging musical experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds and will provide an accessible and interactive way of introducing young children to classical music. Loving that!

The Alternative Village Fete by Home Live Art is a sideways slant on the great British tradition offering a new, contemporary take on craft making, fete games and folk dancing.  Activity includes Robot Relays, Den Building and Hooping the Loop.

Join the Car Boot Disco Bingo  part dance lesson, part party, part performance, part bingo. Think Donna Summer down the Gala and all from the boot of a dinky disco van.

Pick a record and learn to DJ and make everything you need to party in style at the Charity Shop DJ’s Party Tent with Make and Take Crafts.

Poetry Takeaway – with made-to-order poems, delivered and performed to hungry under 10s. Modelled on a typical burger van, manned by a rotating cast of the UK’s best poetry chefs who write, perform and deliver a hand-written, carefully boxed, souvenir copy of every children’s poem (open or wrapped).

Crafternoon Cabaret Club believe everyone can make beautiful handmade items and have a great time in the process. Create beautiful decorations inspired by nature. From weaving colorful hanging webs to fashioning pompom garlands, there’s something for all ages and abilities.

LolliBop’s festival director Gareth Cooper said: “LolliBop is well known for hosting some of the biggest names in children’s entertainment and we are delighted to have the likes of Justin Fletcher, Lazy Town, Sam & Mark, Mister Maker, Horrible Histories and Mr Bloom performing live this year. But our new home of Hatfield House has allowed to us to bring even more varied content to the programme, working with Southbank Centre was the obvious choice for delivering what is sure to be the most diverse and engaging children’s arts programme at any festival this summer.”

And I for one can’t wait to go. Hoping to make a full on weekend of it too 😉

LolliBop takes place August 15-17, Hatfield House.  Tickets are on sale now priced from £20.00pp plus booking fee.  www.lollibopfestival.co.uk
