Take the kids back in time this Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend at the special Vintage Cartoon Wonderland taking place in Bangor’s Castle Park on June 3rd and 4th.
Inspired by all things creative from 1952; toys, feature length cartoons and TV, Firsty Creative and North Down Borough Council have collaborated to bring to life this magical wonderland which will be part of The Council’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration Events.
An entire area of Castle Park will be transformed for the weekend into a 50s-style play-experience – look out for old friends Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben and other surprises in a celebration of the creations of the 50s. There’ll be treasure hunts, crafts, a tea party, plant-potting, dressing up and lots more, guaranteed to keep the kids entertained for hours with lots of nostalgia for the adults!
Follow the White Rabbit down the rabbit-hole and visit (or perhaps revisit!) favorite character’s from the 1950’s. The Mad Hatter will set the scene for a crafty tea-party, with plenty of games and of course the Cheshire Cat will be looking on, but can you find him? Noddy and his Toy Town friends will pose for a picture and Andy Pandy’s dress-up box will be open ready for a rummage so boys and girls can dress up to their heart’s delight!
We want everyone to check under their beds and down the sofas and bring any pieces of stray Lego down to our Lego Amnesty. Help us build a massive sculpture using all your old Lego!
The Cowboys and Indians will be there too and have set up their teepees and you are welcome to come and sit around their REAL pretend fire. Bill and Ben will lead you to the Walled Garden where Firsty Artists have been transforming it into an amazing Sculpture Garden.
So get into the 50s spirit on and prepare to step back in time this June Bank Holiday when you come and celebrate the Diamond Jubilee with us, lots of fun and entertainment for the whole family for the whole weekend from 12 – 6pm both days.
