Lollibop – The Final Line Up!


With less than three weeks until the Lollibop Festival the excitment is really starting to build! I just can’t wait to take both the children again this summer to what I know will be the highlight of all our days out. It’s a full and fun packed day which when you look at the cost of everything you will get to do there individually, is an absolute snip for the price!

If you go you will have children that smile from ear to ear from the minute they get there until you place them, with already sleeping eyes from the journey home, into their beds; still grubby from a day of fun in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and ready to dream about meeting their favourite characters, seeing live versions of the shows they love and playing freely in this dreamy environment! It will be the best day out you have this summer and you HAVE to go!

The line up has been getting better and better each week as more and more acts are signed and now… LOOK what is on the agenda!


LolliBop, the UK’s biggest kid’s festival, has announced Britain’s Got Talent finalists Preskool will be 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.

Choreographer Terry Michael, who runs the TDM stage school where the group meet and rehearse, said: “The children are really excited about going to LolliBop – there are loads of things they want to see in between performances!”


Everyone’s favorite fashion icon, Hello Kitty, is also confirmed to appear at LolliBop 2013.

Hello Kitty will be meeting her adoring fans around the LolliBop site and also as a special guest appearance during the official opening. Expect plenty of glamour, a sprinkle of Hello Kitty magic and all round super-cute fun!

LolliBop’s event manager Jenny Kane said: “Hello Kitty is an international icon and her fan base spans many generations, we know parents and kids alike will be thrilled to meet her in person.”


The cast from Peter Pan the Arena Tour will be flying in to perform a medley from the hit show on the Lolli Live stage over the three days. 

That’s all ON TOP of everythign else I have reported over the last few months!
