I have just been informed that even more line ups have been confirmed for Geronimo. We are so excited for this family festival. You can read our other posts on this exciting even that is coming to Tatton Park, Cheshire on May 23-25th here, and here.
Geronimo is proud to be announcing the Manchester School of Samba who will be holding daily workshops and leading a procession at 4.30pm each day at the festival. The first samba school in the North West, the Manchester School of Samba focus on Brazilian carnival art forms and will be teaching rhythm and dance from different parts of Brazil to all ages at all levels during the festival.
Have you ever wondered why our seasons change? Do you know how to say hello in Japanese? Jump up and join Luke & Emma on their pop, pre-school adventure. ‘A Song a Day LIVE!’ is an action-packed, educational, musical journey and all Geronimites are invited along for the ride! The up-beat, lively production uses music, audience participation and buckets of fun to educate you and your little ones about the world we live in. Luke and Emma will be performing two live shows a day (Sat and Sun only).
PIG is an ever popular, eye-catching installation and show, featuring a nine metre long sleeping sow in a pen. Geronimites can see her snuffling, opening and closing her eyes, and hear her snoring. A farm-hand invites ten people at a time into the pen to take a peek at a 10-minute long, unexpected piece of theatre inside her belly. PIG is an outdoor theatre event suitable for all ages. Performances will be running approximately every 15-minutes, for 2-hours twice a day, throughout the festival
These diverse and exciting new acts join an already fun-filled line up, including CBeebies favourites Cook & Line from Swashbuckle (Sat and Sun only), Mr Bloom, Katy Ashworth and Alex Winters.
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is bound to prove a hit with boys and girls alike as the Master Model Build workshops will be setting up base, and Sea Life Manchester will be making a splash as they bring with them Geronimo’s very own Touch Pool where festival-goers can touch and feel the exciting sea creatures.
In the 3ft & Under Zone, Tumble Tots will be offering taster sessions for children from walking to 5 years old. Each 20-minute session will give children a fun and challenging experience on specially designed colourful, wooden and foam play equipment.
Other activities in this zone includes a pop-up petting farm, donkey rides and a super bouncy inflatable village.
Making the most of the beautiful woodland backdrops at Tatton Park, the Adrenaline Zone will challenge even the bravest adventurers with 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 interactive storytelling, baby massage and baby yoga for families who fancy an escape from the organised mayhem.
Gasp in awe at the breath-taking 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!
