CBBC AND PARENTFOLK ANNOUNCE COLLABORATION FOR THE NEXT PARENTFOLK WEEKENDER.
Exactly one month to go until the ParentFolk Weekender, at The White Horse, Chester Racecourse, so the perfect time to announce an exciting collaboration for our next family social event, and ParentFolk Weekender first birthday celebrations!
We’re delighted to announce that CBBC will be popping up at the ParentFolk Weekender, bringing a host of fun for LittleFolk.
This summer CBBC Summer Social comes to Liverpool in the North West (3rd-5th August), a huge festival for kids, and to kick off the countdown to their summer event, the CBBC team will be getting social with all of our ParentFolk Weekender families.
Bringing the iconic CBBC HQ Desk, LittleFolk will be able to play presenter and capture the perfect photo opportunity! There’ll also be creative fun with arts and activities; enter the Clangers garden and design your own flower before planting it in Grandma Clanger’s garden. A special party guest will also be joining the ParentFolk Weekender’s first birthday as a favourite CBBC face joins our weekender!
Speaking about the collaboration, Mother of four and Founder of ParentFolk, Nicola Spindler, said: “We’re excited to welcome CBBC to the ParentFolk Weekender and to be teaming up with them for the weekender’s first birthday. They’re a natural fit for our family audience and we were delighted to be approached by them and asked to collaborate. Each of our weekender events have delivered something new and we pride ourselves on keeping our offering fresh and unique. We know this exciting collaboration will add a fun and alternative twist to our popular family social.”
The ParentFolk Weekender is an alternative social event for modern families curated by North West publication ParentFolk. A simple concept that sees a takeover of a modern or quirky family friendly venue, the event brings together parents and littlefolk to get social for the afternoon whilst enjoying great food and drink, cool insta brand retail pop ups, music, DJ’s, contemporary arts and crafts and engaging activities.
Nicola added: “The ParentFolk Weekender has grown phenomenally since the first event just a year ago. Families love the simple concept of a low cost admission ticket that includes all activities for littlefolk; such as face art and modern arts and crafts, family rave, music and activity workshops. We’ve built our reputation curating these modern and alternative events for families who want a little more from their weekends together.”
The ParentFolk Weekender comes to The White Horse, Chester Racecourse, on Saturday 21st July 12noon -5pm. Tickets are £6pp and must be purchased in advance. Tickets are available here
