Several celebrities were spotted enjoying the event with their families too, including Take That’s Mark Owen, Hot Fuzz star Simon Pegg, presenter Katy Hill and ex-EastEnder Natalie Cassidy with daughter Eliza.

Festival highlights, included Cbeebies favourites Alex Winters and Katy Ashworth, smash hit video game Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure’s Arena Tour, the Moshi Monster’s Mash Up Tournament, The Gruffalo and Halford’s Bike City. Interactive workshops also kept kids entertained throughout the day with beat boxing and hula hopping classes, Science Museum Live, a LolliBop Kitchen and much more.

Festival Director Mel Wilds said: “We’d like to thank everyone to came to LolliBop and helped make it such a fantastic family event. We’re busy planning a couple of mini LolliBop events between now and next summer – more details coming soon!”
