Lucas and I love attending family festivals, having been to Geronimo for the past 3 years, we went to Down by the Riverside last month and are going to Llangollen next month. When I was emailed about a new festival in Liverpool between the 3-5th August, I knew we had to go and check it out. We will be attending* on the Friday with a couple of our friends. 

Set against the historic backdrop of the Grade II listed Croxteth Country Park, we have been told to expect the very best of CBBC programming including immersive activity zones, theatre shows, interactive and inspiring art workshops, top class musical experiences, cool outdoor and sporting activities, junior discos, themed treasure hunts, gaming areas, character walkabouts, live appearances from the most popular children’s authors and much, much more. 

The CBBC Summer Social is the BBC’s biggest ever kids event, and the only festival to give 6-12 year old’s and their families a unique lineup of CBBC favourites, alongside a host of international music acts including Union J, Johnny Orlando, Matt Terry, Max and Harvey, Sophia Grace and Mackenzie Ziegler.

For the younger children such as Lucas and his friend there is also a CBeebies Village where there will be a Go Jetters disco, Mr Tumble, Swashbuckle’s Cook and Line, Mr Bloom and the Northern Ballet just to name a few. 

Also joining the bill is the world famous  BBC Philharmonic who will be bringing a full orchestra to the event, introducing a young audience to classical pieces in a family friendly setting.

    This sounds like great fun for little ones. It sounds like a good place to visit to help prevent the kids being bored over the summer holidays. I’ll have to check if we are free on one of those dates.

    This looks like great fun for small people, just a shame it’s so far from us
