Peppa will be joined by her brother George, for storytime across the Bank Holiday weekend, along with appearances from everyone’s favourite yellow transformer Bumblebee.

Music for the youngsters will come in the form of Rock School, a mini disco, drum workshops and kids karaoke.

While acts taking to the main stage over the course of the weekend include New Order, Two Door Cinema Club, Rudimental and The Specials.
