Geronimo makes its debut at Tatton Park over the May Bank Holiday weekend (May 23 – 25) and has announced new additions to an already jam-packed line up of live shows and amazing experiences for the whole family to enjoy.

Have you ever wondered why our seasons change? Do you know how to say hello in Japanese? Jump up and join Luke & Emma on their pop, pre-school adventure. ‘A Song a Day LIVE!’ is an action-packed, educational, musical journey and all Geronimites are invited along for the ride! The up-beat, lively production uses music, audience participation and buckets of fun to educate you and your little ones about the world we live in. Luke and Emma will be performing two live shows a day (Sat and Sun only).

Geronimo is also proud to be announcing the Manchester School of Samba who will be holding daily workshops and leading a procession at 4.30pm each day at the festival. The first samba school in the North West, the Manchester School of Samba focus on Brazilian carnival art forms and will be teaching rhythm and dance from different parts of Brazil to all ages at all levels during the festival.

PIG is an ever popular, eye-catching installation and show, featuring a nine metre long sleeping sow in a pen. Geronimites can see her snuffling, opening and closing her eyes, and hear her snoring. A farm-hand invites ten people at a time into the pen to take a peek at a 10-minute long, unexpected piece of theatre inside her belly. PIG is an outdoor theatre event suitable for all ages. Performances will be running approximately every 15-minutes, for 2-hours twice a day, throughout the festival.

These diverse and exciting new acts join an already fun-filled line up, including CBeebies favourites Cook & Line from Swashbuckle (Sat and Sun only), Mr Bloom, Katy Ashworth and Alex Winters.

Plus LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is bound to prove a hit with boys and girls alike as the Master Model Build workshops will be setting up base, and Sea Life Manchester will be making a splash as they bring with them Geronimo’s very own Touch Pool where festival-goers can touch and feel the exciting sea creatures.

Geronimo is aimed at families with children under the age of 12. Geronimo tickets are on sale priced £22.50pp, with family passes priced at £86 (children under the age of two go free). Tickets on the day are £25pp.
