THE largest children's festival in the UK is offering tickets at just £3 to make the event more inclusive to families of all incomes.

Geronimo takes place at Arley Hall from May 22 to 25.

The limited time 'pay what you can afford' scheme will see tickets priced from £3, £5, £10 and £25 each so people can choose what they feel they can reasonably afford.

A spokesman for Geronimo said: "The aim behind it is to allow every family the chance to come along to spend quality time together, we know that raising children can be expensive."

Launched by dad-of-seven, Simon Goldman, the festival includes more than 100 activities and attractions, including two circuses and a 1,600-seater arena, where families can see bands, and TV stars headlining the main stage.

There will also be motorcycle displays, jousting, kids’ entertainers, dancers, archery, graffiti skills, dinosaurs, dolls, Shetland pony racing, fort building and a visit from the Gruffalo.

The spokesman added: "We love Arley Hall, and every year we spend our late May bank holiday there with our 'Geronimites' and their families.

"Our mission is to give all families an amazing fun-filled and magical weekend to enjoy with their children and we have put together a festival which creates memories for a lifetime and you don’t have to just stay for a day, if you want to make a weekend if it, check out our camping package."
