Published on: 15th August 2022

Milkshake! and Sky Kids’ favourites Pip and Posy joined in the fun on the balloon festival’s Brizzle Kicks Stage.

Pip and Posy, the colourful characters from the hit pre-school series, joined in the fun at Bristol International Balloon Fiesta this weekend as they entertained families at the festival’s dedicated children’s area The Brizzle Kicks Stage. Made by Magic Light Pictures, the show was commissioned for a second series in early 2023.

Children at the festival, which took place from 11th-14th August, were invited to meet Pip and Posy as they made special appearances in a dedicated branded area managed by Rainbow Productions. There were also goodies and entertaining activities on hand for the children.

Magic Light Pictures holds the global distribution and merchandising rights to Pip and Posy (excluding publishing) and has launched a full consumer products programme to complement the property. Products already rolling out include tie-in publishing from Nosy Crow, as well as puzzles from Ravensburger, dress up with Amscan, audio figurines with Tonies and home accessories. The Pip and Posy characters will also be appearing in Milkshake! Live and will be touring nationwide from February 2022 through to 2023.

Marc Ollington, marketing director, Magic Light Pictures said: “We are thrilled to have played a part in this colourful and iconic event which has drawn thousands of families to Bristol for several years. It was joyful to watch hundreds of children interacting with their screen favourites and enjoying some special Pip and Posy playtime.”

Hosted by children’s party and entertainment experts, Party Peeps, The Brizzle Kicks Stage created fun and entertaining experiences for families with a variety of acts, from magic shows to street dance, live DJs and singers.
