Magic Light’s Pip and Posy hit the road this summer

Magic Light Pictures’ preschool characters, Pip and Posy are hitting the road this summer, making special appearances at the Bristol Harbour Festival and The Snapdragon Festival at Hinkley in Leicester.

The characters returned to Bristol on 15-16 July after proving a hit with the family crowds at last year’s Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.

The duo sponsored the Harbour Festival’s Circus Playground on College Green and hosted meet and greet sessions with fans, alongside giveaways and activities.

“We were delighted to return to Bristol to play a part in this colourful event which brings the city’s families together in celebration,” commented Marc Ollington, marketing director at Magic Light Pictures. “It is a brilliant fit for our brand and it was joyful to watch hundreds of children interacting with Pip & Posy and enjoying some special playtime.”

Pip and Posy’s next stop will be Leicester where they will be celebrating Playday at The Snapdragon Festival on Wednesday 2 August. Now in its 10th year, the Snapdragon Festival takes place in Argents Mead, Hinckley over three days and features a programme of play activities, free workshops, performances and crafts. There is a theme for each day of the festival and the theme for 2 August is ‘Play on a Shoestring’.
