Nickelodeon is bringing its popular Slimefest family festival to the UK for the first time later this year.
The event will form part of Blackpool’s famous Illuminations ‘Switch-On’ weekend on Saturday September 3 and Sunday September 4.
Slimefest – which originally launched in Australia in 2012 – will feature two live shows, as well as costume character appearances, activities, games and music.
The live shows will take place at the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens, with the outdoor festival being staged on the Switch-On arena at the Tower Festival Headland.
Highlights from Slimefest will be broadcast on the Nickelodeon channel later in the month.
“We already have a great relationship with Blackpool with Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and our relationship is set to be strengthened even further with Slimefest,” said Alan Musa, vp, commercial director at Viacom International Media Networks.
“We know the town is dedicated to providing the best in entertainment for families and that Blackpool will be a brilliant host for the UK’s first ever Slimefest. The Festival is set to be massive with activities, amazing acts and of course, loads of slime. UK kids are going to love it.”
