This is a collaborative post because there’s no ‘I’ in team but there is ‘tea’ so stick the kettle on love.
I received two very exciting emails in my inbox today. The first was from an extremely polite gentleman informing me I was the sole beneficiary of a $45,000,000 estate and to claim I just had to send my address, card details and bra size (I’m hoping the money clears by the time I go to Aldi tomorrow). The second was confirming that we’re going to be fricking Geronimo Festival 2017 Ambassadors.
The ultimate in children’s festivals, 2017’s Geronimo Festival promises to offer not only a great family day out but a whole weekend full of amazing acts and activities. 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 (except at bedtime where all fun must stop immediately. Immediately).
We went to the Festival last year and it was hands down the best family day out we’ve had so I’m beyond excited that we’re getting to go again this year at it’s new home the stunning, expansive grounds at Arley Hall in Northwich, Cheshire.
Taking place from 27th – 29th May 2017, the now three-day festival promises a jam-packed Bank Holiday weekend. Billed as ‘Glastonbury for Kids!’ by the Daily Mirror, Geronimo will play host to a huge array of TV stars who will take centre stage throughout the day . The theme of this year’s event is Princesses, Knights and Dragons so families are welcome to dress up and join in the fun. Stars of CBeebies (including my all time fave, because he’s a brilliant performer not because I think he’s hot, Mr Bloom), CBBC and ITV will all be on hand to keep their young fans entertained.
This year, older children will also be treated to 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 the active kid, there’s so much to cram in including mobile climbing walls, cardboard harp workshops and a Bear Grylls Assault Course. In fact there are literally hundreds of activities to enjoy and something for kids of all ages (and big kids too!). Last year we lost the Husband because he was having too much fun without us (and I was busy elbowing myself to the front for Andy’s Dino Rap Show).
Tier One tickets are still available giving you the chance to get hold of sought-after tickets at their lowest price (from just £16.50 per person). But be quick, they’re only available for a few more days. Geronimo Festival operates on a tiered ticket system. Ticket prices begin at their cheapest price for early birds. The three tiered pricing is set when the Festival tickets go on sale and will progress from one to three as we get closer to the actual event. The sooner you buy, the cheaper it is. Other than the price paid, there is no difference to the ticket received. As an added incentive, early birds who purchase Tier 1 tickets will receive a free wristband for the Victorian Fun Fair.
You can bring your own tent, caravan or motor home or simply let Geronimo take the hassle out of camping with their range of themed tents available to suit families whatever their size (or fanciness).

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a second time this is a collaborative post so y’all better get used to it.
