Location: Hatfield House, Hertfordshire


LolliBop was a family day out aimed at children up to the age of 12 (day tickets only).

Featuring some of the biggest names in kids entertainment on its live stages, LolliBop also plays host to science and educational zones, craft areas and adventure activities.

Workshops, fun activities, and the chance to catch some great kid’s entertainers too – your little ones are bound to have a ball.

Returning LolliBoppers will see old favorites mixed with new attractions.

The new location of Hatfield House is set in beautiful gardens with fountains, a magical woodland and the famous knot garden adjoining the Tudor Old Palace where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood.

For a family destination, Hatfield House can’t be beaten. LolliBop has taken place in numerous locations over the years, and we firmly believe this is our best yet.  The setting is breathtaking  – with stunning gardens, lush green areas and a woodlands just waiting to be explored – it’s allowed us to open our imaginations and plan an event like never before.

We’ve been working hard to secure some of the best-loved names in children’s entertainment.  The 2014 lineup will be jam packed with big names for the main stage, alongside an unprecedented number of live theatre; plus sports; creative workshops; nature talks and brand new areas and acts, never before seen at LolliBop.
