Gloworm Festival in Nottinghamshire returns for seventh year this weekend

The Gloworm Festival returns for its 7th year this weekend.

Just in time to enjoy some forecast August sunshine!

Gloworm is already on its way to being another sell-out event!

The family event is nestled in the beautiful Thoresby Park, Nottinghamshire.

It has been a firm favourite with families and children between the ages of 0-13, with festival goers travelling from all over the UK to enjoy 3 days of wholesome family fun since 2016.

Rebecca McGlone,  Festival Organiser said:

“We’re really excited to be celebrating our 7th year of the Gloworm Festival this week. It’s been such a soggy summer so far, so to learn that the sun has decided to join in the celebrations too makes it even lovelier.

“This year’s event is going to be bigger and better than ever before, with performances and activities for all the family to enjoy. We hope that our festival goers will have a great time experiencing activities, workshops, and performances that they’ve never tried before.’

This year’s event takes place on the 11-13 August, with an incredible lineup already announced, including performances from Andy and the odd socks, Mister Maker featuring Rebecca Keatley and the legendary Basil Brush, Livin’ Joy, Ultimate Coldplay Tribute, Stavros Flatley, Mercury Queen Tribute, The Lancashire Hotpots and many more.

Not only will there be live stage shows across two stages, but families will also be able to meet and greet some of their favourite characters, like Paw Patrol’s Chase and Skye, Bing and Flop, Bluey and Bingo, Hey Duggee and more.

One thing that we love about the Gloworm Festival, is that there are no hidden costs, all activities and workshops are included in the price, even the fairground rides! (a small fee for rides will apply after 5 pm)

With some awesome activities for the whole family to enjoy, from drumming to wrestling, Happy’s Circus, White Post Farm and the now famous Playmobil Village, there really is something for everybody at the Gloworm Festival.
