As a Geronimo ambassador we took Lucas to his first festival at the end of May. Geronimo Festival  is a family festival aimed at 2-13 year olds, although there is nothing to say younger and older children won’t enjoy it too.

Our day at Geronimo festival

The queue to get in to Tatton Park was long and slow once we turned off the main roads into the country roads. However, it wasn’t unbearable and I did expect it to be like that. Lucas wasn’t too impressed but if we go next year, we will know to put more snacks and toys in to introduce at the end of the journey to keep him entertained.Our day at geronimo festival
Once we got in, we headed straight for the 3ft and under zone. In there we found Tumble Tots, Baby Ballet, Soft Play, Baby Yoga. Lucas adored the soft play area and I think he could have happily spent the full day in there, it was actually the same lady that we hired Lucas’ soft play from for his birthday party.

We went into baby ballet where a ballet dancer and 2 teddy bears were dancing. We also had a story read to us by one of The Clangers! I really wanted to explore tumble tots but unfortunately every time we passed there was a huge queue and I knew Lucas wouldn’t want to wait in line in the blazing sun. There were also a breastfeeding tent and changing tent for privacy. The changing tent even had free nappies and wipes in there.

Walking round the festival there were so many activities going on from birds of prey, donkey rides, tightwalking violinists and circus acts. We watched the Knights of the Royal Order carry out a live joust which took a while to warm up but by the end I was very impressed.

Over on the main stage we saw Cook and Line from Swashbuckle who were hilarious, as it was nice weather we stayed relaxing between the main stage and the stalls so Lucas could have a crawl/walk without getting in anybody’s way. There was a huge screen to the side of the main stage that showed the acts so we had a good view without needing to be in the crowds. We also saw Mr Bloom and Justin Fletcher before we headed home.

We didn’t look at half of the activities that were available and had a great day, with everything there, it is definitely a great family day out. We found that Lucas is just in that in between stage were he was too old for the baby activities such as yoga but too young for the ballet as he isn’t stable enough on his feet yet. That being said though, Geronimo doesn’t charge for under 2s and it is aimed at children 2+. I hope Geronimo returns to Tatton Park next year when Lucas can really get into it x

    When we went last year Amy was probably a similar age and we found that she stayed in her pushchair a lot while the big kids got on with stuff – she missed out on the toddler stuff.
    This year, she’s a bit older and she got stuck in on the bouncy castle and helter skelter etc. I think it’s a very different experience depending on the age of children you take.

    Lovely to read a positive review, we went to lollibop previously and all of the children enjoyed it, I also think its what you make it, like you know it is going to be busy but you just prepare for it, and if the children are happy them i’m happy x
