Geronimo family festival launches £5 ticket offer

Families can get their hands on tickets for Geronimo family festival for just GBP5. The event is coming to Arley Hall in Cheshire this August and the ticket offer applies to the final day - Monday, August 23. One thousand of the discounted tickets are available on a first come first served basis.

Promising to be a 'fun packed family festival', it'll feature stage shows, arena demonstrations, live music on the main stage, craft marquees, donkey rides, camel racing, monster truck shows, a funfair and 'the world's biggest bouncy castle'. : "A s*** show of a year for kids": Why school bubbles were destined to fail A 20,000-litre mermaid tank is expected to be a particular highlight, with displays throughout the day, and there'll be a circus, jousting knights and a high wire walker - without a safety net!

After having to cancel a special edition spin-off event at Heaton Park last month, organisers are looking forward to finally being able to host the festival once again. Tickets for the other days cost GBP15 each - or GBP55 for a four-day ticket - so it's a big saving for families.

And although primarily aimed at children aged two to 12, there promises to be 'something for all members of the family to enjoy - whatever their age'. The most popular zone of the festival is usually the main stage, where you can see children's TV stars Sam and Mark, performances from live rock band ROCKAKOKE and join in with a giant Frozen sing-along.

For the parents there's a great Manchester line-up, with Bez from the Happy Mondays doing DJ sets alongside Clint Boon and other big Manchester names still to be announced.
