The biggest kids’ festival in the UK – and the first children’s event to take place at the Olympic Park – the festival will take place over three days, from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 August.
The incredible line-up, designed to delight under-tens, will feature some of the hottest and biggest names in kids entertainment, as well as hundreds of activities, workshops and interactive demos.
Acts include CBeebies Superstar Justin Fletcher (Saturday and Sunday only), Preskool, Hello Kitty, Postman Pat, Skylanders SWAP Force, Mr Men and Little Miss Village Green Event, Rastamouse and Da Easy Crew (Friday only), Peppa Pig and Shaun the Sheep’s Championsheeps!
Dennis Hone, Chief Executive of the London Legacy Development Corporation said: “So far we’ve had Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and world class sport at the Park as part of the summer event series, which have given a taster of what the Park will have to offer when fully open next year. It’s great to be able to welcome Peppa Pig, Rastamouse and co as they take centre stage, in what will be an amazing day for families when children get to take over the Park for their own slice of summer fun.”
Justin Fletcher Live! promises an all singing, all dancing extravaganza guaranteed to bring the house down. And last seen at LolliBop 2011, the all-mouse reggae band, Rastamouse and Da Easy Crew, will be back on stage performing their latest hits for fans.
Britain’s Got Talent finalists Preskool will be also performing live at this year’s event. The 12-strong dance group, all aged between 5 and 9, are making their very first live appearance since the hit ITV show and will perform daily for mini festivalgoers.
