After a long few months in lockdown, we are delighted that our characters are once again bringing smiles to children’s faces up and down the country.
To help this happen, we’ve adopted new best practices to guarantee guest and staff safety with our new Adapted Character Engagement (ACE) programme. Costume character appearances have been customised to ensure each ACE is fun and entertaining, whilst observing the latest government guidelines.
This summer we’ve seen Poppy & Branch from the Trolls help launch George at Asda’s Trolls World Tour collection with Fearne Mccann, Hey Duggee visit Old MacDonald’s Farm in Essex, as well as the Minions embark on a tour of Park Holidays UK resorts providing family-fun for holidaymakers.
Plus, if you were lucky enough to visit Camel Creek Adventure Park in Cornwall you might have spotted PAW Patrol’s Chase & Marshall, Peppa Pig & George, Hey Duggee or Sonic the Hedgehog & Amy, as the park successfully hosted weekly character appearances.
Keith Thompson, Sales & Marketing Manager at the park commented “This summer hasn’t been normal for anyone and we were quite nervous by how things were going to run with all of our new procedures in place. Normally, the kids visiting during a Character event would hug and high-five their favourite characters, but this year had to be different. Despite our excited children on park not being able to interact the same way, Rainbow Productions still made it fun! Pre-show dancing and warm up events were awesome and, during an awkward time for many, they made it work! Our reviews have been incredible as a whole… Five ***** for sure!”
As the kids head back to school, let’s take a look at the exciting events lined up for this month…
5th & 6th September: Oink! Peppa Pig & George are heading to Statfold Barn Railway in Tamworth. Children can also complete Peppa Pig’s Hide & Seek Trail!
19th September: The Gruffalo is leaving the deep, dark woods to meet his fans at Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway in Kent
26th September: PAW Patrol’s Chase is on the case at Old MacDonald’s Farm in Essex
