Victorious Festival (23rd – 25th August 2019) – the UK’s Biggest Metropolitan Festival – has today announced its extensive programme of family entertainment. The huge, completely free Kids Arena will feature CBeebies star Mr Bloom, the legendary, larger-than-life transformer, Bumblebee, Captain Barnacles and Kwazii from the Octonauts and even Entertainment One’s (eOne) Peppa Pig and her brother George! Combined with an already impressive music line-up that includes New Order, Two Door Cinema Club, Rudimental, The Specials and more, Victorious really is the ultimate family-friendly festival experience
The Kids Arena, described as a ‘mini-festival in itself’, features an abundance of family-friendly activities including face painting, karaoke and even a children’s disco all of which are completely free to mini festival-goers!
Headline performances on the kids stage include CBeebies royalty, Mr Bloom on the Sunday and the bravest Polar bear you’ll ever meet, Captain Barnacles on the Saturday. Across the weekend there will be story time with Peppa Pig and George, who are celebrating 15 years of muddy puddles along with appearances from everyone’s favourite yellow transformer, Bumblebee. Plus a number of fairytale Princesses will be visiting throughout the day so, make sure your cameras are at the ready!
It doesn’t stop there, there’s plenty of music suitable for youngsters of all ages to enjoy, including Rock School, a mini-disco, drum workshops and kids karaoke. If it’s creativity you’re looking for, head to the Arts & Crafts tent to get stuck into a range of activities including cupcake decorating and colouring or simply pull up a deck chair and relax in the Beach Area, whilst you watch your little one’s build sandcastles!
