LolliBop has announced the dates and location for this years LolliBop festival.
This year it is all change for LolliBop as it is moving after spending the last two years at Regents Park, London to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the 16th, 17th and 18th August 2013.
We were lucky enough to be given tickets last year and the children all had a wonderful time, seeing their favourite TV characters and everything else that was going on that day. It was a beautiful summer's day and even the brief thunderstorm didn't spoil their day and the heat of the sun quickly dried us off.
Not only did they get to see some of their favourite characters from TV, my favourite was Titan the robot and he was my son's favourite as well! You can read more about our day at LolliBop last year here
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is already famous in it's own right. Millions of people tuned in last year to watch the 2012 Olympics which were held there and LolliBop is the first children's festival to take place and they guarantee it will be their best year yet. As it's the 4th year they wanted to go bigger and this meant moving to a larger location in order to bring you even more entertainment and activities than ever before! But that's not all, not only do you get to attend LolliBop, which will be a big deal in itself, the park has lots of lovely added benefits to explore outside LolliBop, such as a brand new kids playground - set to be one of the most dynamic and imaginative kids areas in the UK. It will include a large-scale adventure playground, sandpit and rock landscape. Children will be able to build dens, investigate insects or even explore ladders, slides and walkways set amongst the trees. Timber-clad, it will reflect and enhance the natural environment, with solar panals to produce it's own green energy.
Another reason to move from Regents Park is the transport links. The closest station is Stratford, which has 9 rail links and 3 underground links. In fact there are over 190 trains to Stratford from all over the country, making it even easier for LolliBop fans to attend the festival and Stratfod is one of the most connected stations in the UK. Not to mention you can also get to LolliBop on over 10 bus routes as well!!!
Tickets are already on sale and are selling out fast. In fact in just a few short weeks of being on sale all the Super Early Bird tickets have SOLD OUT!!!
Early Bird tickets are still available which I strongly recommend getting if you want to go as LolliBop is a lot of fun and they selling out fast!!!
The LolliBop line-up and programme hasn't been released yet but if it's anything like last years it's sure to be amazing.
The only thing that I am sad about is that we won't be able to go this year! I'll either be heavily pregnant or have a newborn as I'm due a few days after LolliBop. My kids are devastated that they can't go again this year as they had so much fun last year, but there's always next year!!!
