YOUNGSTERS will be tickled pink when they come face to face with a pair of popular children’s book and TV characters in Stafford next month.
Mr Tickle and Little Miss Sunshine will be making appearances at Party in the Park in Victoria Park on July 6.
The characters have been entertaining children for years as part of the famous set of Mr Men books and television series.
The event will also include story telling in a marquee and a chill-out reading area with beanbags which will have Mr Men and Little Miss books for visitors to read. Face painting, art workshops, train rides and other entertainment will be on offer and entry is free although there is a small charge for some of the activities.
Councillor Mike Smith, said: “This has always been a popular event in our calendar and brings hundreds of families together for a fantastic day in such a wonderful setting. We will hope for good weather on the day but with our choice of TV characters entertaining youngsters at the ‘Party’ you could say we have already guaranteed ‘Sunshine’.”
