Geronimo Tatton Park Update - Dick & Dom

Geronimo Festival 2016, Spring Bank Holiday, Bank holiday family day out

Geronimo Festival 2016, Spring Bank Holiday, Bank holiday family day out
Possibly the last announcement for Geronimo Tatton Park this bank holiday weekend!

First of all, Sunday 29th May tickets are all sold out! Wow! I'm a bit worried now because it's going to be jammed packed haha.

Secondly, Dick & Dom will be there on Monday! I think Abby would rather go on Monday, so I didn't tell her *shhhh*. 2nd tier tickets for Monday are still available so grab them before they are all gone. Remember that children under 2 goes free so they don't need a ticket to go in.

I understand that there are some concerns about Geronimo Festival since Hatfield House, but it was a mixture of unfortunate events. The weather was bad, although having lived in the UK for long enough, it's kind of expected really, I call it the festival wellies weather. The forecast at the moment is dry, so fingers crossed it will at least stay dry. The sun will be a bonus of course!

It was also unfortunate that several food vendors decided not to turn up (I feel really sorry for the PR, they did everything they could). That's a bit unexpected and not something that can be controlled, but now that there is such experience, I believe the people at Geronimo are prepared now. Besides, they have held Geronimo at Tatton Park last year, so the people at Tatton Park know the drill. I have high hopes that it will go smoothly.

I will expect the following however:

- Long queues
especially if you are going on Sunday. Bringing your own food will help, and planning your day ahead of course.

As soon as you arrive (arrive early or late to avoid the traffic. There are 2 entrances in Tatton Park, for more information check Tatton Park's website), go to the activities you want to go first, especially for really popular ones like My Little Pony Bus.

The timetable for the day and Geronimo activities map can be found on Geronimo's home page (just scroll down a bit further to the day you are going). You will be given a map on the day but I'd print one out before hand if you can, it help so much with planning!

- British weather of course! Be prepared for the worst and bring your wellies and raincoats just in case it decided to do one of those "4 season in one day" kind of weather.

- Lots of fun, because when you are prepared for the worst, everything else will be amazing! There are funfair stuff, sporty, arty stuff, music and shows, and it's a bank holiday weekend so let's enjoy it!

If you are going on Sunday, I might see you there! x
