Nickelodeon UK is partnering with VisitBlackpool to bring Nickelodeon’s Slimefest back for a fifth year running, promising another year of slime, music, and mayhem following a run of sold out shows.
Slimefest 2020 will take place at The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from October 17 to 19 and is coming to London for the first time, as DHP Family prepares to present two shows at The SSE Arena, Wembley on October 26th.
Long-standing Slimefest hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely will be returning to the stage, joined his year by Max and Harvey and Holly H for all eight shows. They’ll host Nickelodeon’s unique mix of chart-topping music acts, special guests, social stars and of course, slime.
Virginia Monaghan, VP, events and experiences, ViacomCBS Networks International, commented: “We can’t wait to bring Slimefest back for a fifth year, it’s been such a huge success in Blackpool so we’re looking forward to returning to the UK’s favourite beach resort.
“Expanding the shows to the iconic arena in Wembley is a testament to the event and it’s affinity with kids and parents alike. London and Blackpool -prepare for the ultimate badge of honour from us at Nickelodeon….slime.”
Cllr Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council, added: “We are delighted to see the return of Nickelodeon’s SlimeFest in 2020. These shows have become an integral part of Blackpool’s fantastic October half-term offer, attracting parents and children from across the country.
“We look forward to welcoming families to another three days of fabulous entertainment and hope they will take the opportunity to enjoy everything that Blackpool has to offer during our spectacular Illuminations season.”
Slimefest will also air on Friday, November 6 at 6pm on Nickelodeon as well as over the weekend on Channel 5.
