Geronimo is Back for 2016!

image

One of the highlights of 2015 family festival calendar was the Geronimo festival. We sent the O’Brien family along to check it out and they had a fabulous time. Read their full review here.

Geronimo will be at Harewood House on May 1st and 2nd 2016 and at Tatton Park on May 29th and 30th 2016.

What can you expect from Geronimo is 2016? Well I’m glad you asked!

*The return of Mr Bloom to the Geronostage Zone! There’ll be a bundle of veggie stories, gardening games, and catchy nursery songs for toddlers and parents alike

*Andy Day will be performing his Dino Rap show filled with tales of his adventures to far away lands

*Alex Winters from CBeebies will be hosting the main stage each day, along with daily meet and greets

*Cook and Line from Swashbuckle will be there, full of fun songs and silly slapstick comedy

*The Adrenaline Zone will challenge even the bravest adventurers with tree climbing, den making and a thrilling zip line that will reach speeds of up to 60KPH!

*As well as all that, there will be fencing and archery taster lessons and Parkour sessions where Geronimites can learn how to jump and roll like a pro. (My kids did a short course of Parkour lessons and they LOVED it!)

*The Arena Zone is new for 2016. With motorbike display teams, sheepdog shows with a difference (Or goosedog shows given our distinct lack of sheep!) and owls in the falconry show – on horseback, natch!

*For history fans, watch the Knights of the Royal Order as they carry out a live joust, or check out a local band of cowboys showing off their horse handling skills.

*Join some dance classes to learn Bollywood or Zumba moves or enjoy a gigantic drumming session – beware, it’s going to be noisy!

*The 3ft and Under Zone is back, little ones can join a fun class with Tumble Tots, take a ride on a balance bike or take a dance lesson with baby ballet. For the tiny tots, simply chill out in the baby yoga tent.

*The Funky Junk Zone. Woodwork workshops, hair braiding, face painting and fairy making workshops, stone carving and totem pole making, there is something for everyone to get stuck in to.

*Transformed into the Woodland Zone, Geronimites can make a mud pie or fairy potion, learn to create a whistle from a carrot or build a den. Older kids can monkey around in the trees in a mobile high ropes course or strap on a helmet and ride the mountain bike course. I know my boys will love this part!

There’s more too – all this listed stuff and I haven’t even covered everything. There’s just no way to explain how phenomenal a day you’re destined to have at Geronimo. Honestly, just go!

Tickets are on sale from Saturday November 7 priced from £18.50pp.

A ticket for Geronimo Harewood also includes access to Below Stairs of the House.

      Well yes, I’ve heard many a mum say similar things about Mr. Bloom! Have you seen him without his glasses? Looks completely different!

    I would love to visit Geronimo – I’ve heard such good things about it but never been able to make it. Love that visitors are called Geronimites! x
