Geronimo festival announces return for a second year

Published on: 2nd December 2015

The family festival has a second venue for 2016.

geronimo480Following the success of Geronimo Festival’s first venture at Tatton Park in 2015, festival organiser Simon Goldman has announced the return of the festival, which saw 12,000 visitors flock to Tatton over a weekend.

Tickets are now officially on sale for the family-friendly weekender in 2016, which is set to make a return not only to Tatton Park in Cheshire, but also Harewood House, just outside Leeds, from 1st-2nd May and 29th -30th May.

Simon Goldman commented: “Following the success of Geronimo in 2015, we are super sizing the event to deliver an even more amazing festival for 2016. With the addition of our second venue at Harewood House, the festival will offer families all over the North of England the chance to enjoy a really great day out without having to travel too far, and the expense that goes with that. Geronimo offers a festival that is value for money, interactive and just as much fun for the adults as the kids. Whilst family attractions are great, there is nothing quite like Geronimo festival. There is a real need for a day out that has lots of different elements within it. A day out that can cater for a diverse age range and that gives you that special feeling of quality family time. Those days often require careful planning by parents.”

Geronimo is hoping to raise awareness of the festival, and is on the look out for potential partners and sponsors.
