Children’s TV star Mr Bloom was the star guest at Stockeld Park on Bank Holiday Monday.

The theme park near Wetherby opened again last Saturday for springtime holiday adventures and on Bank Holiday Monday there was a very special guest with a visit from CBeebies’ Mr Bloom.

Amy Thornton, General Manager at Stockeld Park, said: “There couldn’t have been a better VIP to launch our Spring Adventure, and we were delighted to welcome CBeebies’ Mr Bloom to Stockeld Park.”

Mr Bloom performed a show and was joined by friends Fairy Enchantica, PomPom and Stanley to welcome visitors.

There were also 20 lucky winners selected to help plant the first of this year’s magic Pumpkins in Stockeld Park’s very own Pumpkin Patch.

Mr Bloom added: “I was so happy to see all the boys and girls at Stockeld Park today and help plant their Pumpkin Patch ready for Hallowe’en.”

Everyday this May half term there will be spring themed fun activities, such as a daily snail racing, a planting zone and the gardening theme continues further with a search for some naughty Garden gnomes who have escaped from Farmer Fosters Barnyard and are lost in the maze.

All of this is alongside Stockeld Park’s usual exciting mix of attractions including a roller rink, Enchanted Forest, playground areas, maze, inflatable slide, giant indoor and outdoor jumping pillows, electric scooters, indoor play zone and crafty craft area.

The Spring Adventure is part of an ever expanding programme of events at the attraction which was opened by owners Peter and Susie Grant and run as a winter theme park for a number of years.

Last year saw it open for the first time during the summer and this year held a successful Easter opening.

With a strong emphasis on providing visitors with an adventure, Stockeld Park blends outdoor activity pursuits with original sights, sounds and sculpture – all based in one of Yorkshire’s most ancient woodland locations.
