Last year Blackpool’s Stanley Park played host to a free family fun day, filled to the brim with tiny worlds and exciting activities. This event was part of Wordpool, Blackpool Libraries’ annual festival of words and literacy. Attending this relaxed yet well-crafted event last year was a treat and a fun ending to what was a great year for Wordpool. On Saturday 5 July this year the park will no doubt be filled again with families rolling in to see the Giants. Instead of the aforementioned Tiny Worlds, the theme this time will be based around giants, being given the specific title of The Giants Are Coming. Although the theme is flipped, this event promises to have the same family appeal of last time and fingers crossed for the same glorious weather.

What is so appealing about The Giants Are Coming is the sheer variety of arts, crafts and theatre on display.  You can design and build your own Iron Giant, explore the world of the Gruffalo, and help Mouse find his way in the forest, or travel to the giant storytelling wheel. Whatever attracts your family’s eye on this day, be sure to make the most of every minute. To explore the event in its entirety is estimated to take around two hours, so get to Stanley Park on 5 July in good time. Although I previously crossed my fingers for the weather, even if it does rain next this Saturday this event is destined to go on – rain or shine, drizzle won’t stop giants! Keep an eye on altBlackpool for other Wordpool coverage, and find your way down to Stanley Park on the 5 July for a fun, free family day out.

Registration for Wordpool’s Family Fun Day starts at 12.30pm at the Stanley Park Visitors Centre, down by the lake or at the Clock Tower.  Activities begin at 1pm and last until 4pm.
