Mr Bloom and his band to play main stage at Rochdale Feel Good Festival

Date published: 17 May 2019

Mr Bloom and his ‘compostarium’ band will open the main stage at this summer’s Rochdale Feel Good Festival.

The CBeebies favourite, who performed three sold-out shows back in March at Rochdale Food & Drink Festival will be joined by his four-piece band for a free lunchtime show guaranteed to get families dancing and singing.

Their set is set to feature all the musical hits from his television shows as well as numerous cheeky covers. They promise plenty of audience participation led by Mr Bloom’s trademark humour, along with a special guest appearance from ‘Peggy the Dancing Bean.’

It’s the first time a children’s act has played the main stage at Rochdale Feel Good Festival, which will also see the return of the event’s hugely-popular fun and interactive Family Zone.

The Esplanade in front of Rochdale Town Hall will be transformed into a Festival Square for youngsters and their families between 11am and 5pm as part of the annual event headlined by indie-rock band The Coral on Saturday 10 August.

The Family Zone will be supported by Arts Council England National Lottery funding, in partnership with Link4Life and details on the activities and shows will be revealed soon. Just like the rest of the festival, admission is free and no tickets are required.

Mr Bloom and his band will be joined by previously announced headliner The Coral, pop/rock band The Hoosiers, rock ‘n’ roll band Alias Kid, northern soul band The Northern Soultrain new singer/songwriter Ione, Caribbean pop act The Curious Incident, singer/songwriter Megan Dixon Hood and a local battle of the bands winner.
