It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since Mother&Baby covered Denise Van Outen unveiling the new CBeebies Land at Alton Towers, but from Saturday May 25th to Sunday June 2nd, the UK’s only Cbeebies Land will be celebrating its 10th anniversary with a week-long festival of celebrations. If you’ve ever wanted to meet Bluey or see Justin Fletcher live, this is your chance!

During the May half term, Cbeebies Land will be celebrating its birthday with a whole week of brand new entertainment, live meet and greets with your favourite Cbeebies stars, fun-filled activities and special guest appearances from the likes of Justin Fletcher, the Heeler family and much more. There'll be opportunities to join Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli and get your dancing shoes on as they rock out on the magic xylophone and magic asparagus, and watch live performances by famous Cbeebies stars.

While Alton Towers and Cbeebies Land is always a fun idea for half term, this year will be even more jam-packed with interactive experiences, live shows and more Cbeebies favourites than ever.

CBeebies House Party Live

In celebration of ten years of Cbeebies Land, the park will be hosting a special live show featuring an all-star cast of CBeebies House presenters on stage and on screen. House favourites, including Evie Pickerill, Gyasi Sheppy, Joanna Adeyinka-Burford, Rhys Stephenson, and of course, Dodge the Dog, will be joined by special guests that are sure to be familiar to Cbeebies fans of all ages.

The anniversary schedule will run over two, 30-minute shows, every day and bring your favourite moments, from Party Time to Bedtime, to a live stage party.

From fun rides to 'meet and greets', exploring a prehistoric dig site to joining Captain Barnacles on an Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure, there’s so much to see and do at Cbeebies Land.
