Lollibop 2014 Ambassador

lollibop

Last year I attended the Lollibop kids Festival and it was absolutely amaze-balls! We loved it!! I cannot tell you how good it was, I had been invited along as a blogger but this year I have been approached by them to be an Ambassador and I am beyond excited!

Lollibop is the best kids day out, there is so much more to it that your average kids festival. This one is, I would say… classy! There is nothing cheap and tacky about it as some kids focused days out are, and there are some really brilliant acts and areas that are truly fantastic! There is no expense spared!

Last year the event was held at the Queen Elizabeth Park on the Olympics site, which was good but this year it is somewhere better!

HATFIELD HOUSE

Of course I’m biased because it’s not far from where I live, so much easier for me to get to but I think it’s going to be a fab venue, it’s beautiful there and a bit of a site seeing adventure in itself!

Situated in Hertfordshire, Hatfield House (the childhood home of Elizabeth 1), just off the A1 with plenty of parking or a short 22 minute train journey from London Kings Cross, the stunning country house and gardens offer an incredible array of spaces to host LolliBop’s vast activity and entertainment programme.

Festival Director Gareth Cooper said: “For a family destination, Hatfield House can’t be beaten.  The setting is breathtaking  – with stunning gardens, lush green areas and a woodlands just waiting to be explored – it’s allowed us to open our imaginations and programme an event like never before.

With good motorways links, extensive on site parking and just a five minute walk from Hatfield train station, LolliBop 2014 is more accessible than ever before. So, what are you waiting for? Keep one of the days free… 15th, 16th or 17th August and book those tickets!
