Children's TV favourites, interactive dinosaur shows and screenings of popular kids films are just some of the events planned for the little ones at this month's Relight Festival.
Taking place inside a big top style marquee in Wolverhampton's West Park, the brand-new Relight Festival will host 30 events across 17 days, from Friday 20th August until Sunday 5th September.
On Monday 23rd August, the big top will host three performances of Jurassic Earth - featuring roaming, state-of-the-art animatronic life-like Dinosaurs in an interactive and exciting story-telling show. The prehistoric line-up includes Europe's largest T-Rex dinosaur, two cheeky velociraptors, a 18ft long triceratops and a bunch of baby dinosaurs. Little ones will also have the chance to try their hand at ranger training with the wild dinosaurs.
The marquee will then transform into a big top cinema on Tuesday 24th August with screenings of family favourites of both Mary Poppins Returns and Toy Story 4. And again, on Wednesday 1st September, screening The Secret Life of Pets 2 and The Greatest Showman.
Stars of CBBC's hit show Andy and the Band, Andy and the Odd Socks will bring some sock'n'roll to the big top on Wednesday 25th August. Singing about aliens, dinosaurs rapping robots and groovy hoovers, the band have previously played Glastonbury and have just finished their new album.
On Saturday 28th August, a huge line-up of kids favourites will perform as part of Kids Fest. Cbeebies' Katy Ashworth, Evie & Joanna, children's magician Russ Brown, Princess Showtime, and Zack Phillips will all be part of the fun-filled show.
Whilst on Tuesday 31st August, Fireman Sam Live will be bringing an all singing, dancing, action-packed show to the festival. When all of his friends go away, Norman Price decides to find adventure in Pontypandy and become the star of a visiting circus. But with a tiger on the loose and faulty lights, the adventure soon turns to danger. Can Fireman Sam come to the rescue and save the circus?
