Gloworm Festival 2017

Clumber Park, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, S80 3AZ
Gloworm Festival 2017


Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 August 2017

The Gloworm Festival is a brilliant 2 day event especially created for humans and their little people.

We are delighted to announce a host of brilliant children’s TV favourites appearing at the Gloworm Festival in 2017

Andy Day, who hosts several of his own shows on CBeebies, will be amongst the fun at Gloworm. Andy will be performing on the main stage on Sunday 20 August  and festival goers will have the chance give him a high five during a ‘meet & greet’ session after his stage performance.

Round the corner, not far away, Bing and Flop will also be at the festival on Sunday 20 August.  You and your Bingsters will be able to meet Bing and Flop during ‘meet and greet’ sessions at intervals throughout the day, so make sure you come by to say hello!

We can’t forget everybody’s favourite Postman, can we?  Postman Pat® and Jess the Cat are also heading to this year’s Gloworm Festival! They’ll be appearing during Story Time sessions, led by a narrator, at intervals on Saturday 19 August.

Childrens TV entertainment royalty, The Chuckle Brothers, are another wonderful act at this year’s festival. With tribute acts from ‘One Step Behind – The Masters of Madness’, ‘Kazabian’ and ‘The Killerz’ there will be plenty of music to get the young and older Glowormers dancing about. Not forgetting the fantastic Cuban Brothers too! They will be headlining on Saturday 19 August as they perform a 2 hour set!

We have also increased the number of zones at Gloworm, one of these areas being The Hive. The Hive is a cool area for Big Kids, Tweens and Teens! With DJ sessions, Go Pro Creation and a whole host of other brilliant activities aimed to entertain the not so tiny children, this is going to be an awesome hang out for our older Glowormers. Keep 'em peeled for more info coming your way soon!

Dinosaur Theme

This year has a big dinosaur theme with our new ‘Dino Zone’ which will be full of amazing workshops and meet and greets with T-Rex and the baby Dinosaurs.  We have secured the author of the series of dinosaur books, ‘What’s so special about Dinosaurs’, Nicky Dee and TV Paleontologist - Dean Lomax will be running their workshops, answering questions and children can handle real fossils and bone. There will be more workshops provided by ‘Dinostar’ who will be hosting fossil digs, dinosaur egg painting and lots more.  

Cooking with Rustie Lee

That's right! We've only gone and got ourselves Rustie Lee.

Rustie Lee, will be hosting interactive family cooking demonstrations throughout both days of Gloworm at the ‘Bake and Make’ zone   

The festival, which is now in its second successive year following a hugely successful debut, will once again take place at Clumber Park. The organisers have assured that the next event will be even bigger and even better than its inaugural year with a larger site hosting more zones and creative areas to enjoy.

There will be plenty more to be announced in the coming months including, music artists, more entertainers, extra activities and everything else!
