lollibop 2014


With the summer holidays rapidly approaching I’m busy making fun plans for the purple family.  A couple of years ago we went to Lollibop and I posted about it here. This year I’m excited to announce I’m an official Lollibop 2014 blogger, and in exchange for telling you all about the festival we’re getting tickets to go again, hooray.

Lollibop 2014 is the UK’s biggest festival for children under 10. There will be live acts and shows, interactive play, activities and more. To get ready for the festival I’ve had a look at the programme to pick out what I think the Purple children will be most excited about doing and seeing.

Super Kid: I think Super Kid will be very happy to see ‘Scooby Doo The Mystery of the Pyramid’ live on stage. He likes Scooby Doo and this show promises physical comedy, popular tunes and special effects which I’m sure will make for a very entertaining show. To do: I’ve picked out the Science Museum tent, Super Kid loves science and doing experiments and in this tent he can launch a rocket, hold dry ice bubbles, experience a real life explosion and much more.

Robo Boy: Robo Boy has been really enjoying the Cbeebies show Swashbuckle, so I’m sure he’ll want to see ‘Cook and Line from Swashbuckle’. Full of fun songs and silly slapstick comedy I can only look forward to Robo Boy picking up some new joke songs to add to his repertoire. To do I think he will want to head to the new area ‘Join In with Southbank’ to find something crafty to do at the Crafternoon Cabaret Club. Robo Boy loves all things crafty so I was pleased to see this new collaboration between Lollibop and The Southbank Centre.

Wonder Girl: Like most three year olds Wonder Girl loves Justin Fletcher so I’m planning on donning ear defenders to protect my ears from her screams of excitement when she sees him on stage. To do Wonder Girl loves making noise, starting most days with a song, so I’ll bet she’s going to enjoy the STOMP workshop. Banging things, and dancing will make her very happy indeed.

Lollibop 2014 is going to be a fun packed day with so much to see and do that the only trouble will be picking. Tickets are from £20 per person with parking available too. For more information and to buy tickets head to the website here.
