Geronimo

I am pleased to announce, that I will be a Geronimo ambassador.


What is Geronimo, you ask??  Well....
 
Geronimo is a long weekend of family fun. It will be debuting on the May bank holiday which is Saturday 23rd -Monday 25th May. It will be taking place in Tatton Park, in Cheshire, (WA16 6NQ)  and is set to deliver an exciting programme of acts, amazing experiences and wonderful adventures, resulting in a fantastic family day out.
 
Festival Director Simon Goldman said: “As a father of seven, I know how hard it is to find quality days out that cater for the whole family.  With Geronimo, we’ve created a festival that’s going to keep the kids entertained all day long, and create memories that will last a lot longer."
The family friendly festival will be in zones...
The adrenaline Zone (High Octane, thrills and spills) will challenge even the bravest of adventures. This area will include the high ropes course, tree climbing, den building and the zip wire, which can reach up to a whopping 60kph.

 
 
The geronostage zone (Main stage entertainment)  Bignames will be appearing on the Geronostage, like Cbeebies favourite, Mr Bloom. He will be performing live twice a day.
Cbeebies "I can cook" presenter Katy Ashworth, will be making three live performances a day and meet and greet sessions too. More live acts will be announced soon
 
 
 
The 3ft and under zone (Big fun for the little ones). They will have their pop up petting farm, sandpits, camel rides, (Im really interested in seeing the girls on one of these!) bubble shows, and an inflatable village.
 
The groovy zone (Lets get bopping) -this is the area for the children (and parents) who love to dance. Activities in this area include Zumba workshops, dress-up area, dance classes with baby ballet, and they also have their own disco playing all the party favourites. (I know that both girls would LOVE this area ALOT!!)
The funky junk zone (Creative workshops galore) this zone is for the creative children, from cookie decorating to buggy makeovers, festival goers are invited to take part in the live art projects, and I've been warned... GLITTER OVERLOAD!!
 
The circus zone (Big top entertainment) This is where you can laugh out loud at the clowns or gasp in awe at the breath taking trapeze artist. There will be regular shows taking place throughout the long weekend. Or you could pick up a skill or two, in a workshop, or just sit back and watch the classic Punch and Judy shows. You may also see mini circus acts around the festival too, so keep your eyes peeled.
 
Doesn't it sound amazing?? We can not wait to go... I know we will be in every zone, as each part I appeals.... It is aimed at families with children 12 years and under, but older children are welcome too. Adults must be accompanied by a child.
 
Doors are open 10am to 5pm daily. My concern was with the Great British weather, but the website www.geronomofest.com cleared my worries up:
What happens if it is raining?We want to ensure that you can enjoy the event come rain or shine and many of our activities will be under cover and in marquees.  The buggy parks will also be under cover.
So how much does it cost?? It all depends how organised you are... The early bird tickets are £16pp (under twos are free) and go on sale at 9am, 2nd February. After the early bird tickets sell out its £20pp,  Family passes start at £75.

For more information check out their website, twitter, or facebook.

Will I be seeing you there? What area appeals to you and your children more?

 
 
***********UPDATE - 10th February ************
 
Geronimo has added more acts and activities to its already jam packed line-up.
 
First up, is Cook and Line from Swashbuckle who will be performing live on stage three times a day (Saturday and Sunday only).  Join them in a rip-roaring pirate adventure, full of fun songs and silly slapstick comedy.  It’s guaranteed to be an energetic and interactive show to entertain children of all ages. There will also be meet and greets after each live performance.
 
Popular CBeebies presenter Alex Winters has also confirmed he will be at the festival.  Geronimites can join Alex in the magical woodlands for interactive storytelling.  He will also make live stage appearances and meeting festival goers daily.

 
Animal fans will be delighted to hear Ranger Rob will also be at Geronimo.  Explore the amazing world of mini beasts, get up close to lizards and snakes, scorpions and tarantulas.  And for those who prefer their animals a little fluffier, there will be rabbits, guinea pigs and pigmy hedgehogs too.
 
 
Other new additions to the bill, include Tree Climbing with Monkey Do, Bear Trails, The Sheep Show, Balance Bike Course, Pif Paf Roaming Circus Acts and an Old Fashioned Helter Skelter.
