Pip and Posy Gear up for Summer of Fun
Pip and Posy – the colourful characters from the hit pre-school series from multiple Oscar-nominated Magic Light Pictures – are taking their special brand of playtime on the road this Summer as they make special appearances at the iconic Bristol Harbour Festival and The Snapdragon Festival at Hinkley in Leicester.
The loveable characters returned to Bristol on 15th and 16th July after wowing family crowds at last year’s Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. The dynamic duo sponsored the Harbour Festival’s iconic Circus Playground on College Green and hosted meet and greet sessions with their fans, alongside exciting giveaways and entertaining activities.
Marc Ollington, Marketing Director, Magic Light Pictures said: “We were delighted to return to Bristol to play a part in this colourful event which brings the city’s families together in celebration. It is a brilliant fit for our brand and it was joyful to watch hundreds of children interacting with Pip & Posy and enjoying some special playtime.”
Pip and Posy’s next stop will be Leicester where they will be celebrating Playday at The Snapdragon Festival on Wednesday August 2nd. Now in its tenth year, the Snapdragon Festival takes place in Argents Mead, Hinckley over three days and features a programme of play activities, free workshops, performances and crafts. There is a theme for each day of the festival and the theme for 2nd August is ‘Play on a Shoestring’.
Pip and Posy are the best of friends whose lives revolve around a wonderful world of play. Packed with warmth and humour, the series is full of laughter and games, and the challenges that friendship’s journey brings.
Magic Light Pictures holds the global distribution and merchandising rights to Pip and Posy (excluding publishing) and has launched a full consumer products programme to complement the property. Products already rolling out include tie-in publishing from Nosy Crow, as well as puzzles from Ravensburger, dress up with Amscan, audio figurines with Tonies, and home accessories. The Pip and Posy characters are also appearing in Milkshake! Live, headlining Parkdean Resorts’ Milkshake! Mornings at key times during the Summer and touring nationwide throughout 2023.
