The Summer Social is back and this time it’s bigger than ever as it brings together the very best bits of the whole BBC for a packed weekend of music, sport and live performances for family festival fun.
We’re returning to the beautiful setting of Croxteth Country Park, Liverpool on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th August 2019 for a weekend of special memories, come and join us!
Saturday sees a big pop line up on the main stage along with CBBC favourites, broadcast live on the CBBC channel and on BBC Radio 2 with Jo Whiley. She’ll welcome the biggest CBBC stars to the Radio 2 studio at Croxteth Park, as well as our headliner music acts…
Busted take to the stage along with Pixie Lott, Rak-Su, John Newman, Max and Harvey, New Hope Club, Four of Diamonds, Nina Nesbitt and Freya Ridings with performances from big CBBC shows like The Next Step and Almost Never. The perfect feel good day for the whole family!
Sunday is pitched towards younger festival go-ers, with Mr Tumble headlining the main stage alongside Andy Day & The Odd Socks, Dr Ranj, YolanDa’s Band Jam, Cook and Line from Swashbuckle, Hey Duggee and special live performances from big family shows. We’ll be broadcasting live on CBeebies from the festival for the first time ever.
Across both days you won’t be stuck for something to do – our BBC Sport field is chock full of different sports for you to try your hand at, from tennis, to parkour and a Match of the Day Kickabout challenge.
There’s loads of Doctor Who fun, a supersize Bedtime Stories tent, a Blue Peter Garden to relax in, performances from big CBeebies and CBBC shows including The Worst Witch and an entire field of inflatable fun – including the world’s biggest bouncy castle!
