THE brand-new family festival, FamFest, which comes to Warrington next month featuring a jam-packed programme on Sat 11 and Sun 12 August, aims to keep the whole family entertained!
Orford Jubilee Park will be brimming with activity zones, rides and attractions, character shows, skills workshops, and a full music line-up, all guaranteeing a fun-filled weekend which runs from 11am to 10pm each day.
Head to the Kids Zone and enjoy spectacular live performances from kids’ TV favourites Mister Maker and Basil Brush, along with live action shows from Beauty and the Beast, Frozen’s Anna & Elsa, Moana, Rapunzel and Flynn, and The Minions.
Roll up, roll up. The circus is in town and they want you! Juggling, plate spinning, diablo throwing, stilt walking – have fun whilst learning all the skills required to be the next great circus performer in the Circus Skills Workshop.
Get crafty and put your creative skills to the test with Disney’s Art Attack presenter Lloyd Warbey who will be hosting the Kids Craft Zone with lots of fun activities for everyone to join in with.
There will also be opportunity to meet a range of characters throughout the two-day family festival including Darth Vader and Stormtroopers, Ironman, The Incredible Hulk, The A-Team’s Mr T and many more in the Kids Zone!
The Sports Zone will be host to a huge selection of sports activities to have a go at and get the adrenaline pumping. With everything on offer from SNAG golf and archery, to rugby, cricket and basketball. Try to be the last one standing on the Gladiator podium, or why not battle it out in the sumo wrestling ring. There will be plenty to try and suitable for all levels and abilities.
Music fans will be in for a treat with the Main Stage featuring an amazing selection of top tribute acts paying homage to stars like Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Little Mix, Taylor Swift, Jessie J, Katy Perry and many more! PLUS an extra special performance by Warringtonian – and winner of BBC’s The Voice 2017 – Mo Jamil.
FamFest Warrington is a ticketed event. Along with regular ticket prices, there are also upgrade options to VIP, family VIP or weekend tickets.
Ticket entry will give visitors access to Sports Zone, Kids Zone and Circus Skills activities, the Basil Brush Show, Kids Craft Zone and Character Zone, as well as the main stage tribute artists and shows. Mister Maker & his live shows are also there but only on the Saturday.
There will also be a pay and ride Fun Fair with lots of thrill rides and attractions to enjoy.
Visitors can also visit the Princess Pamper Pavilion where all young festivalgoers can pay to have glitter hair and tattoos done by the Disney princesses.
And there will also be food and drink, including a full licensed bar, and a VIP marquee.
Founder Pete Pinnington said: “I really wanted to create an event that caters for everyone, offering the whole family a fun and memorable day out! FamFest really does have something on offer for everyone – the younger kids will love the live shows like Mister Maker and Basil Brush whilst the older ones can have fun in the Sports Zone. Plus, the Main Stage will have music that appeals to all ages and generations – with the likes of Ariana and Taylor for the kids and Lionel Ritchie, George Michael and Coldplay for Mum and Dad.
“It promises to be an action-packed weekend, tickets are selling fast so get yours now!”
So, grab your deck chairs, pack a picnic and book tickets to Warrington’s premier summer attraction that is the perfect day out for the whole family!
