LolliBop, the UK’s biggest kid’s festival, has announced Britain’s Got Talent finalists Preskool will be performing live at this year’s event.
The 12-strong dance group, all aged between 5 and 9, are making their very first live appearance since the hit ITV show and will perform daily for mini festivalgoers.
Choreographer Terry Michael, who runs the TDM stage school where the group meet and rehearse, said: “The children are really excited about going to LolliBop – there are loads of things they want to see in between performances!”
Everyone’s favorite fashion icon, Hello Kitty, is also confirmed to appear at LolliBop 2013. Hello Kitty will be meeting her adoring fans around the LolliBop site and also as a special guest appearance during the official opening. Expect plenty of glamour, a sprinkle of Hello Kitty magic and all round super-cute fun!
LolliBops event manager Jenny Kane said: “Hello Kitty is an international icon and her fan base spans many generations, we know parents and kids alike will be thrilled to meet her in person.”
The cast from Peter Pan the Arena Tour will be flying in to perform a medley from the hit show on the Lolli Live stage over the three days.
The WotWots will zoom into this Year’s Lollibop festival to meet and greet all their special little fans at intervals throughout the day.
The WotWots have come from outer space in their steam-powered spaceship to explore and marvel at the extraordinary diverse life on Earth. In season one of the television series, SpottyWot and DottyWot arrive in the middle of a zoo and in the second season, they land on a farm and meet strange and friendly farm animals as well as travel to the seashore.
