Returning to Croxteth Country Park for two days this August, the CBBC Summer Social is set to sizzle with music, live performance and sporting prowess.
Whatever floats your boat, you will find it here. Tots to teens will love all of the action. Each day boasts a different line-up featuring many of the BBC’s favourite faces, and plenty of other zones, creative spaces and creativity.
Saturday is poptastic with Jo Whiley hosting Busted, John Newman, Donel Nina Nesbitt and Freya Ridings on the main stage. Broadcast on the CBBC channel and BBC Radio 2, expect performance from some of CBBC’s most popular shows. Look out for the cast of The Next Step, Almost Never, and The Worst Witch.
Younger fans will be thrilled by Sunday’s offering which will also be broadcast live on CBeebies. Mr. Tumble will be head-lining the main stage (of course), alongside Andy Day & The Odd Socks, Dr Ranj, YolanDa’s Band Jam, Cook and Line from Swashbuckle, Hey Duggee and more.
Across both days, let loose on the BBC Sport Field. Have a go at everything from tennis to parkour and show off your best goal-scoring celebrations in the Match of the Day challenge. Meanwhile, a whole field of inflatables awaits, including the world’s largest bouncy castle.
Adventure around the Doctor Who zone and chill out in the Blue Peter Garden or the Bedtime Stories tent. Stretch your minds with Q&As, screenings and creative workshops from across the CBeebies and CBBC networks.
Keep your ear to the ground over the coming weeks for more announcements including contributions from cultural organisations and top local talent to complete the high quality line-up.
Croxteth Country Park provides a mighty fine backdrop for the CBBC Summer Social with a petting farm, a beautiful Victorian Walled Garden and its majestic Grade II listed Hall.
