Children’s TV favourites announced for Gloworm Festival 2017


A host of brilliant children’s TV favourites will be appearing at next year’s Gloworm Festival which takes place in Nottinghamshire on 19 and 20 August 2017.

Andy Day, who hosts several of his own shows on CBeebies, will be amongst the fun at Gloworm next year. Andy will be performing on the main stage on the Sunday and festival goers will have the chance to give him a sneaky high five during a ‘meet & greet’ session after his stage performance.

Around the corner, not far away, Bing and Flop will also be appearing at the festival on Sunday 20.  You and your Bingsters will be able to meet Bing and Flop during meet and greet sessions at intervals throughout the day, so make sure you come by to say hello!

We can’t forget everybody’s favourite Postman, can we?  Postman Pat® and Jess the Cat are also heading to this year’s Gloworm Festival! They’ll be appearing during Story Time sessions, led by a narrator, at intervals on Saturday 19 August.

The festival, which is now in its second successive year following a hugely successful debut, will once again take place at Clumber Park. The organisers have assured that the next event will be even bigger and even better than its inaugural year with a larger site hosting more zones and creative areas to enjoy.

The launch festival featured the likes of CBBC’s Dick and Dom, Peppa Pig, Mr Bloom and Thomas the Tank Engine as well as the Headline Sunday act ‘Toploader’ who closed the festival.

Families wanting to camp at the festival will be delighted to know that the amount of spaces available has been increased with a larger camping site being acquired after the huge demand following last year’s successful event.

Tickets are now on sale and offer the perfect Christmas Present.

Additional announcements will be made in the coming months for news about music artists, more entertainers, extra activities and everything else!

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings.
