Rastamouse for Lollibop Festival 2011

LolliBop are chuffed to bits to announce that Rastamouse and his crime fighting companions Scratchy and Zoomer  will be “Makin’ a bad ting good” on their way to the LolliBop main stage this year! We can’t wait!

Mel Wilds LolliBop Director says “We at LolliBop towers are squeaking with excitement that Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer will be coming to this years festival – come down and join us for three days of fun!”

Rastamouse added: “Da Easy Crew vibes gonna be rockin’ LolliBop dis year.  Irie Man!

‘Give it up for Da Easy Crew’!

Sharing a bit of love and respect and skating their way onto the LolliBop stage Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer will keep the little ones bopping with some ‘Hot Hot Hot’ tracks from their debut album and some cool, cool performances of songs from the show including ‘Ice Popp’.

Reggae singing superhero Rastamouse became a phenomenon earlier this year after his TV series premiered on CBeebies.

When things go wrong in Mouseland, President Wensley Dale always calls on Da Easy Crew. That’s when Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer hang up their guitars and cut loose from Nuff Song Studio to find out “whaa gwaan”. More often than not there’s a mystery needs solving or a criminal to be captured. By working together Da Easy Crew always fix the problem. And if a criminal has been apprehended Rastamouse makes sure redemption not retribution is the order of the day. Whatever’s gone wrong; through love and respect Rastamouse will always make a bad thing good!

After a sell – out success in London’s Clissold Park last summer, the magical LolliBop festival is proud to have found a majestic new home in Regent’s Park!

With his laid back vibe and reggae – jammin’ sound Rastamouse joins The Zany ZingZillas who will be monkey’ing around on the main stage joined by Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest play; get scared by Horrible Histories or see your favourite CBeebies presenters Cerrie Burnell, Alex Winters and Sid Stone introducing our fabulous acts. Fly into space with The Science Museum Live, dance the night away with Dick & Dom and Baby Loves Disco at the Ibiza style disco Minimission, or Rhumba around Itsy Bitsy Strictly style.

And there’s much much more! Facepainting, arts and crafts, comedy, Babyoke, hairdressing, go karting, pizza making workshops, Football factory, an Enchanted Forest with wizard & fairy schools, DJ Workshops and even a gorilla enclosure…watch out for your bananas! Phew!

LolliBop is THE family event of the summer with all the thrills of a festival vibe but without the hassle of camping or long car journeys! Plus once you have paid your ticket price all entertainment is free! Our fantastic three day festival extravaganza is a feast of interactive fun, where everything is aimed at keeping our pint sized festival goers happy.
