POPULAR characters from children’s television will be coming to Weston for five days of family fun this summer.
The CBeebies Big Day Out is coming to the Beach Lawns from July 29 to August 2 and gives those aged six and under the chance to meet the stars and enjoy some free activities.
It is part of the BBC Learning Dish Up campaign, which aims to make cooking fun and accessible for the whole family.
Headlining the event will be special guests Phoebe Furchester-Fuzz and Furgus Fuzz from The Furchester Hotel, with a live show called Kitchen Catastrophe, which will have singing, problem-solving, and a guest chef to cook up some monster food.
Former JLS singer JB Gill will be a guest chef, and said: “My style of cooking is easy and fun for the whole family, dishes that can be whipped up at the end of a busy day.
“I’m excited about getting into the kitchen with those furry monsters Furgus and Phoebe, there’ll be lots of audience interaction so make sure you bring your singing voices.”
Aaron Craze, star of CBBC’s Junior Bake Off and graduate from Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant, will also be a guest chef.
Elsewhere at the event, there will be a CBeebies stage with entertaining performances throughout the day.
Presenters Rebecca Keatley from Let’s Play and Dr Ranj from Get Well Soon will lead the audience through a programme of live stage performances, games, and interactive storytelling and music.
Rastamouse and Da Easy Crew will be skating into Weston with co-creator Michael De Souza for a musical storytelling extravaganza, celebrating rhythm, reading, and music.
Visitors can bust some moves with Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer as they take centre stage and dance along to their very own cooking-inspired songs.
CBeebies favourite Acro Chefs display their acrobatic skills and ask you to join in with their cooking-inspired routine.
Other activities on offer across the event include: make your own easy ice cream, discover and guess the vegetable, play the new online Furchester food game, or even design your very own Rastamouse-themed pizza.
The site will be open daily between 10am and 5pm. Tickets are needed for the Kitchen Catastrophe performances, which can be applied for via www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours
