Kidtropolis returns for second year with new line-up

Kidtropolis is returning once again this year, packed full of a variety of children’s brands and activities for kids to enjoy.

Kicking off during the October half term, Postman Pat and Jess the Cat will be on hand to bring their ‘Special Baking Service’ mini show to Kidtropolis, while Fireman Sam will be celebrating his 30th anniversary.

CITV’s Sooty, Sweep and Soo will also be in attendance, accompanied by Richard Cadell, plus comedian and writer Julian Clary will be joining illustrator David Roberts at the show to introduce children and families to The Bolds.

Street dance group Flawless will also showcase their dance routines as seen on TV, and will be joined by a next generation of students from their very own amazing school of dance, The Flawless Dance School, where students will learn all that needs to be known about performing and dancing.

“We are thrilled to be bringing such an amazing proposition to consumers and brands at Kidtropolis 2017,” said Gemma Gallagher, director of brand relations at Kidtropolis.

“We’ve packed the event with live shows, much loved brands and unique activities. Consumers won’t find this much variety of fun all under one roof, anywhere else in the UK. Kidtropolis is going to be very special this year.”

Kidtropolis first made its debut last year, and welcomed more than 18,500 visitors.
