This summer saw the very welcome return of character appearances in the UK, with our Adapted Character Engagements (ACE) programme proving to be transformative, putting children and their families at the heart of the experiences.
September saw the PAW Patrol pups help Spin Master celebrate the launch of their new PAW Patrol DINO Rescue themed toys at Knebworth House, Old MacDonald’s Farm in Essex welcome Peppa Pig & George, the Gruffalo take a train ride at Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway and Hey Duggee perform his Stick Song for guests at White Post Farm in Nottingham. Commenting on Hey Duggee’s visit, White Post Farm’s Operations Manager Ant Moore said,
“One of the best character days we’ve had! Awesome Rainbow Magic makers and a great reaction from the visitors. The ACE 1 floorplan works perfectly. Thank you!”
