I had some exciting news this week – I have been selected as one of the 15 official bloggers for the Little Fun Fest children’s festival which takes place at Red House Farm in Dunham Massey, Cheshire on the 5th and 6th of April. This means that I will not only get to take my family to visit the festival, but also that I’ll be able to share information about the event in the build up, including information as to what will be happening at the festival, and hopefully a discount code for ticket purchases as well. I’m not quite sure what I’ve let myself in for, as I haven’t been to this event before, but it’s great to have things like this happening on our doorstep so I’m looking forward to a fun day out with the family.
So what is Little Fun Fest? Well, it’s combination of a great venue (Red House Farm has a barrel train ride, climbing wall and other activities) with a number of special attractions like a fun fair, big top tent and celebrity guests. At the time of writing these include Alex Winters,Dr Ranj and Cat Sandion from CBeebies as well as the Harry Potter team. In addition there will be Baby Ballet, Face painters, StarKidz and more.
I’m really looking forward to the event, as it will be the first family festival the geek family have ever attended. We went to the Cheshire Food Festival last summer and really enjoyed it, so I can only imagine how much more the kids are going to enjoy a festival aimed specifically at them. Now I just need to hope that the geekdaughter can get over her shyness of meeting CBeebies presenters (so far she’s hidden under a table to avoid meeting Justin Fletcher and hidden behind me to avoid meeting Chris and Pui from Show Me, Show Me!). She was quite jealous of me getting my photo taken with Dr Ranj at the MAD Blog Awards ceremony last year though, so maybe she’ll be less shy this time!
Early Bird tickets for Little Fun Fest are now available, and if you watch this space I hope to bring you an exclusive discount code soon as well.
Disclosure: As a Little Fun Fest official blogger I will receive complimentary entry to the event for my family in return for sharing my experiences with my readers.
