Geronimo Family Festival at Heaton Park Manchester - Celebrate the end of lockdown at Heaton Park, Manchester, 26–27 June 2021, from £15 - Book now

The popular Geronimo family festival is holding a one-off special edition at Heaton Park in June to celebrate the end of lockdown ahead of their August festival at Arley Hall in Cheshire. This two-day bonanza certainly packs a punch and with such a diverse programme there’s no possibility of your little ones getting bored.

What’s more, the festival founder Simon Goldman is offering 1,000 NHS workers (and their families) half-price family passes for bookings made between 10 May and 23 May. Having witnessed the dedication of healthcare workers when his sister required hospital treatment while seriously ill from the virus, Goldman feels passionately about giving NHS workers  “a well deserved treat.”

At the festival you can expect spectacular stage shows, arena demonstrations, live music, craft marquees, donkey rides, monster truck shows, a funfair and the world’s biggest bouncy castle!

This two-day bonanza certainly packs a punch and with such a diverse programme there’s no possibility of your little ones getting bored.

The festival features three main showground arenas, each featuring timetabled events – from jousting tournaments to camel racing. For the adrenalin junkies, there are zip lines to enjoy and fearless motorcycle riders to watch as they take on the wheel of death.

There’s a plethora of unmissable musical performances too. For little ones, bands like The Rockin Rhinos, Johnny and the Raindrops and Big Fish Little Fish will keep them entertained and for the parents and grandparents, there’s a magnificently ‘Manchester’ line up with Mr Scruff , Clint Boon and Bez (from the Happy Mondays) on the decks.

On site, you can expect a host of food and drink offerings including an array of fantastic artisan food trucks which cater to all dietary requirements and the craft beer garden is on standby for the grown ups to rest their legs with a well deserved pint.

So, wellies on! We think a day at the Geronimo Family Festival is sure to provide a host of new memories.

Ticket prices include entry to all of the attractions and shows with the exception of the funfair. Visitors with tickets purchased under the NHS workers discount scheme must bring their staff card or ID number to gain entry on the day.

Safety measures will be in place in relation to coronavirus – including the use of lateral flow testing.
