Nickelodeon UK & Ireland has partnered with Blackpool Council to bring Slimefest to the UK.

The show will form part of Blackpool’s Switch On weekend, which has a number of events taking place on 3-4 September.

Slimefest will feature two live show, activities, characters, music, and, of course, slime.

“We already have a great relationship with Blackpool with Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and our relationship is set to be strengthened even further with Slimefest,” said Alan Musa, VP, commercial director at Viacom International Media Networks.

“We know the town is dedicated to providing the best in entertainment for families and that Blackpool will be a brilliant host for the UK’s first ever Slimefest.”

Counciller Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with one of the world’s biggest and best known brands. Nickelodeon is a perfect fit with Blackpool’s family market and we look forward to staging the UK’s first Slimefest event in Blackpool over the 2016 Switch-On Weekend.

“The shows and free outdoor festival will add a completely new dimension to the biggest date in Blackpool’s tourism calendar.”
