Alton Towers Resort kicks off 10-year celebration of UK’s only CBeebies Land with all-star line-up and festivities this May

Moorlands-based Alton Towers Resort will be marking the 10th anniversary of the UK’s only CBeebies Land with a week-long festival of celebrations on the front lawns of the theme park this May half-term, as it becomes home to a host of new live entertainment, family activities and special guests – bringing the joy of the CBeebies channel to guests on the theme park!

Exclusively for May half term (Saturday May 25th – Sunday June 2nd), CBeebies House Party Live, a special show will feature an all-star cast of CBeebies House presenters on stage and on screen, including Evie Pickerill, Gyasi Sheppy, Joanna Adeyinka-Burford, Rhys Stephenson, George Webster, Dodge The Dog, Rebecca Keatley and Ben Cajee. With special guests including Mr Maker, Andy Day and Justin Fletcher starring throughout the week!* There will be two, 30-minute shows, every-day showcasing the CBeebies House favourite moments adapted for the stage. Guests will be taken on a journey from party time to bedtime in a huge live stage party featuring a range of characters and presenters from the show.

In addition to experiencing CBeebies Land, guests will be able to enter the festival via the celebration gateway onto the front lawns area of the theme park and enjoy the entertainment, food, and activities for all the family. Guests can explore a nature spot, make music by turning everyday objects into instruments, create bubbles of all shapes and sizes, and so much more.

If that’s not enough, young families can enjoy a delicious variety of both sweet and savoury food options including, smokery smashed burgers, rainbow wraps, pizza, mac and cheese, ice cream sundaes and shave ice snow cones. Children can also choose to top and wrap their own pancakes and design and fill their very own smoothie cup.

Earlier this year, the Resort welcomed the loveable, inexhaustible, Blue Heeler dog, Bluey, and her little sister, Bingo to its line-up of CBeebies friends. From Saturday 25th May onwards, Bluey and Bingo will be joined by their parents, Bandit and Chilli for a fun live experience in CBeebies Land! Join the Heeler family in Big Fun Showtime and show off your best dance moves as they play games with the magic xylophone and magic asparagus, followed by the chance to meet and greet the family, marking the first time ever Bluey fans can meet Bandit and Chilli.

A brand-new sensory space has also been developed and will be the latest addition to CBeebies Land in the coming weeks, providing a calming environment for guests with additional needs who require a quiet moment away from the excitement of the Resort’s rides, live shows and attractions. Full of interactive sensory experiences ranging from soft seating and interactive projections, to tactile panels and soft lighting, the dedicated area is designed to create a calm space for those who need it to relax. More details on this will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Bianca Sammut, Divisional Director for Alton Towers Resort, said: “We are excited to mark the 10th anniversary of CBeebies Land with a fun-packed programme of live entertainment, activities and special guests, bringing to life even more CBeebies favourites for families to enjoy together. This is more entertainment over May Half Term than we have ever done before, making it the ultimate option for families.

“Our anniversary celebrations will provide a truly immersive experience for young fans and really captivate their imaginations, which we’re sure both parents and children will love, and we cannot wait to see them being enjoyed by our guests.”

Natasha Spence, Head of Attractions – Live Events at BBC Studios, said: “CBeebies Land offers a brilliant and unique opportunity for young children and their families to experience some of their favourite CBeebies shows and meet the characters. The line-up of experiences and activities to mark the 10th anniversary are incredibly exciting and add to what is already a rich portfolio of CBeebies brands for guests to enjoy.”
