I'm an Official Ambassador for Geronimo 2016!

Then there was that day earlier this year when I came face to face with Mr. Bloom from CBeebies. The setting was the first ever Geronimo Festival.

If you missed being there, fret not. Geronimo is set to return in 2016 and it promises to be bigger and better. For a start, it is not only returning to Tatton Park in Cheshire for a second year on 29 and 30 May, but it also has a new second home at Harewood House, just outside Leeds, where it runs over the weekend of 1 – 2 May.

I am extremely delighted to announce that I have been selected to be an official blogger ambassador for Geronimo 2016. This means I can bring you all the Geronimo gossip as it happens, when it happens.

Take the line-up for 2016, for instance. It has only just been announced that CBeebies’ favourite, Andy Day will be at the festival performing his Dino Rap show. It promises to be filled with tales of his adventures to faraway lands.

Mr Bloom is set to return to the Geronostage as will Cook and Line from Swashbuckle. Alex Winters from CBeebies will be hosting the main stage each day, along with daily meet and greets.

Some of the Zones and features from 2015 will be seen again in next year’s Geronimo. That is not all. There is a huge range of new and exciting additional activities that will add to the experience in 2016. Here is a snapshot of what’s on offer:
