Lollibop is a big festival for little people and we have been lucky enough to go every year since it began. This year we have been invited to be Lollibop Bloggers and we are very excited, especially as this means we will be able to check out Lollibops new venue at Hatfield House which promises to be better than ever before!
Well, plans for this year Lollibop are coming along nicely with some great new acts being announced all the time. Keep checking back as I shall soon be giving away a Family Pass for one lucky reader! Check out the press release below for the latest acts which have just been announced . . .

LolliBop, the UK’s biggest kids festival, taking place August 15-17 at Hatfield House, has added Lazy Town Live, Bear Grylls Survival Academy and other top names to its 2014 lineup.
Lazy Town Live
LolliBoppers are invited to join the hit television show Lazy Town Live on the main stage at this year’s festival. Stephanie, the new girl in town, with the help of her backflipping superhero friend Sportacus, will teach festival-goers how to get active, what is “sports candy”, where good energy comes from and most importantly how to become superheroes! This highly energetic mini-show will have everyone jumping, dancing and singing along!
Join the universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance in the STOMP workshops. The team behind the hit West End show will be taking up residence at LolliBop running workshops across the weekend. Step into the exciting world of music using pipes, bins, plastic bottles and much more… and once fully trained, mini STOMP-ers are invited to join the daily parade to showcase their new talents. Bin lids have never been so much fun.
