PRINCESS PICNIC AT THE CASTLE

*** POSTPONED ***

After the huge success of last year’s Princess Picnic at the castle we are planning that

2020 is going to be bigger, better and more magical than ever before!

 

Enjoy an interactive performance from the unmissable Baby Broadway as you and your Prince or Princess enter the real-life grounds of Tonbridge Castle. Set up your picnic blanket, explore the castle in your favourite outfit and get involved in all the extra activities we have on offer. Meet walkabout entertainer Silly Billy, have a bounce on our inflatables and get your faces painted by Wacky Faces before being mesmerised with our new Interactive 2020 Live Musical Experience! With a superbly talented cast of your favourite fairy-tale characters, enter “into the unknown” with princesses provided by Once Upon A Wish Events and a sprinkle of fairy dust from Bravo Productions, topped off with story-time by the Enchanted Fairy, whilst you enjoy your picnic on the castle lawn!

 

Book your ticket today and choose your very own area where you WILL meet and have a photo with one chosen character!

 

Alternatively, put your name onto the VIP guest-list to sit under cover in our premium seats where your ticket will include a free activities book! You will also receive private entertaining from Silly Billy whilst the rest of our princesses meet our other guests and when they’re ready, you can grab a photo with ALL of our Princesses at once!

 

Don’t miss out on this fabulous chance and your special invite to the biggest Royal party in Tonbridge for all the family! We can’t wait to meet you!

Bravo Productions have worked extremely carefully on providing a unique, safe and exciting experience for everyone. You will only be able to meet and have your photo with your chosen Princess ONLY (unless you have booked a VIP ticket). Please remain in your allocated areas during the performance and whilst meet and greets are happening. If you have any questions regarding the running of the event, please do get in touch before purchasing your ticket. Face painting and bouncing on inflatables is not included in the ticket price. This venue is accessible.

There will also be three professional face painters that are set up under a gazebo from the start of the event, so there will be plenty of time to have your face painted. We have split the tickets to ensure every child is guaranteed a photo with ONE princess of their choice upon booking (this should help hugely!).

Extra costs include merchandise, refreshments, facepainting and the bouncy castle. All entertainment and your photo with one of our Princesses is included in the ticket price.




HOW WILL THE EVENT DIFFER FROM LAST YEAR?


We have spent a long time reflecting on last years event. We have taken on everyones feedback, listened and added even more fairy dust to ensure this years event is even more magical. If you came last year, please come again and see how this years picnic is reaching new heights.
