Family Fun - Jubilee Family Festival

Morning! The sun is shining and it's a gorgeous day here in Suffolk.  I hope you have some sun where you are too.  I have posted some Jubilee Party inspiration over on Let's Plan A Party today so I thought I would stick with the Jubilee theme here too.  I know there are all sorts of fabulous things being planned all over the country for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend and I hope to share several of them with you in my Family Fun posts.  On the 2-3 June Hyde Park will be turned in to a extravagnza of family fun to celebrate the Jubilee.  The Jubilee Family Festival has been organised by Sainsburys and will be open to 50,000 ticket holders each of the two days. 

Inspired by the great British tradition of street parties and village fetes, The Jubilee Family Festival will not disappoint.  Themed on the past 60 years of our British heritage and influences from around the Commonwealth, visitors will be treated to an array of live music and entertainment, culminating in a daily 70 minute Disney concert finale.  This concert has been specially produced to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and will include favourite Disney songs and characters a plenty.   

The Main Stage will host the Disney concerts aswell as other celebrity nad showbiz performances and will be broadcast on two huge screens so even the smallest visitors will be able to see what is going on.  The Kids Zone will feature live and interactive stage shows from our childrens favourite characters, including Fireman Sam, Bob The Builder, Angelina Ballerina and Mike The Knight.  The Disney Zone will have a variety of themed activities aswell as  life sized Lightning McQueen, Mater and Finn McMissile from the Disney/Pixar movie Cars 2.  The Parade Ground will be brimming with pomp and ceremony as motorcycle display teams, Queen's cavalry, marching bands and much more take to the arena.  The Commonwealth will be celebrated with dancers and musicians from around the world, including Harambee African Drummers and New Zealand Maori Haka Dancers.

As if that wasn't enough there will be Singing Tea Ladies, Pearly Kings & Queens, English Gentlemen on stilts, marching bands and face painters wandering around the festival to entertain you.  Rumbling tummies will not be heard as you can tuck into pies, traditional English Breakfasts, cream teas, roasts and fish and chips.  I really hope there will be ice cream vans too as a 99 Flake is a must at such a auspicious occasion! 

Tickets are available from Ticketmaster and See Tickets, Adults cost £20, Children (under 16's) £12.50 and children under three are free and Family Tickets (2 adults & 2 chidlren) cost £52.  I know again a family is considered as 2 adults and 2 chidlren, but hey one day someone will catch on that this isn't the only family demographic anymore!

For more information visit the Jubilee Family Festival website.

Are you planning on visiting London during the Diamon Jubilee weekend? Or perhaps there is too much going on to celebrate in your street, village, town or city!  

Have a fab day everyone,
