Lollibop’s the perfect event for us, it targets the same audience – tweens and younger children – and it’s in London, where people can listen to us on DAB Digital Radio.
We’ll be broadcasting from the site for three days from a purpose-built RadioZone! There’s lots of opportunities for our partners to get involved, from sponsorship of all the activity to competitions and sampling. Get in touch with the team if you want to know more.
Here’s the official press release:
Children’s radio station Fun Kids is getting into the summer spirit by becoming a Media Partner of the UK’s biggest children’s festival Lollibop.
LolliBop which this year takes place on August 16, 17 & 18 in its new home, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, expects to attract 45,000 visitors over the three days.
The partnership means that Fun Kids will be taking the radio station to the festival and broadcasting from there all weekend.
Festival-goers will also get the chance at being a superstar DJ, introducing songs and being heard by thousands of Fun Kids listeners across the UK.
In the Fun Kids RadioZone, Lolliboppers will also be able to meet the DJs, hear readings from authors, take part in scientific experiments and dance along at the Fun Kids disco.
Matt Deegan, Station Manger at Fun Kids says “We’re taking the entire radio station to Lollibop and creating our biggest ever outdoor presence. We’re incredibly excited about meeting all of our listeners and telling new people all about Fun Kids too”.
