Did you love getting slimed?
On Saturday, 3rd September, Diversity dance troupe stars Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely hosted Nickelodeon’s first UK SLIMEFEST! This fantastically slimy event took place in Blackpool as part of Illuminations Switch-On Weekend in the Empress Ballroom at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
Singer and TV personality, Alesha Dixon performed some of her biggest hits, including ‘The Boy Does Nothing’. Conor performed songs from his number one album ‘Contrast’ to a slime pit full of screaming fans!
Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin, stars of Nickelodeon’s hit live-action series The Thundermans, came along to Blackpool all the way from the United States to join the SLIMEFEST party! Kira looked so glamorous, and cheeky chappy Jack made us all laugh.
Also appearing as part of the music and mayhem, vlogger and host of Nickelodeon’s Summer Fest, Roxxsaurus teamed up with popular presenter Roman Kemp to host the SLIMEFEST backstage interviews and silly games with the stars.
The YouTube star has over one million subscribers and excitedly joined the line-up, along with previously announced dance group Diversity and California-based band The Tide.
Footage from the live shows will be broadcast in a special programme on Nickelodeon.
For those that wanted the slime to just keep on oozing, there was fun all weekend!
Free Family SLIMEFEST Festival Experience
In collaboration with Nickelodeon, we hosted a free family festival SLIMEFEST experience at the Blackpool Tower Festival Headland over the weekend. Unfortunately, torrential rain on the Saturday washed a lot of slime away, but the Sunday proved a hit with visitors who got free goodies and the chance to participate in some slimy events.
Divided into four zones: Slime, Music, Mayhem and Nick Jr., the free festival showground had something for each member of the family. The Slime Zone played home to gooey activities such as ‘Slime and Spoon’ Races and ‘Slime Tennis’, while the Music Zone was the place for families to show off their moves.
The Nickelodeon Slime Crew were showing off their incredible skills with BMX bike tricks and urban gymnastics in the Mayhem Zone whilst younger kids enjoyed pre-school focussed activities in the Nick Jr. area.
In addition to the four areas, the SLIMEFEST area at Tower Festival Headland was visited by some of our favourite Nickelodeon costume character friends from Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach! These included Chase and Marshall from PAW Patrol, Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
On both days, there was a very special outdoor screening of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of the Shadows’ to celebrate the DVD, Blu-Ray and digital release this October.
