‘Greatest yet’

Richard Walpole, festival director, said this year is shaping up to be the ‘greatest yet’.

The Gloworm Festival at Thoresby Park was cancelled in 2020, but is returning for its second weekend since the pandemic.

He said: “We’re incredibly excited to be returning to Thoresby Park in August and delivering our second festival since the pandemic.

“[Gloworm] will also see the return and development of popular zones such as the Playmobil Zone and The Beach thanks to our partners at Kinetic Sand, and the Baby Change in partnership with Childs Farm.

“As a family festival our aim has always been to provide the best family entertainment at the most affordable price, so to support people around the cost of living concerns we’ve frozen our ticket prices until May 31 and extended customers’ ability to take out a payment plan, which can now be done until May 31.”
