Dinosaurs take over Victoria Park!

by Tom Martin (July 2022)

VICTORIA Park in Southport was taken over by dinosaurs last weekend – much to the delight of local youngsters!

Thousands of people enjoyed the first ever Far Away Land Festival in Southport, with live performances, dinosaurs, live high flying wrestling, kids characters, inflatables and more to keep families entertained. 

CBBC stars Andy and the Odd Socks headlined the main stage, while visitors also enjoyed performances from Roald Dahl and the Imagination Seekers, Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventure, Sing Along with the Encanto Sisters, Twisted Tales For Terrible Children by Gav Cross and more. 

Jurassic Live brought their life-like dinosaurs for families to admire, with a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Stegosaurus. 

Children enjoyed making LEGO, making crafts, making slime or learning about science, and also bounced on giant inflatables or got the chance to enjoy a Virtual Reality roller coaster ride. 

Far Away Land also teamed up with autism charity Autism In Motion to create a Calm and Sensory Zone for children who might become overwhelmed and need a little respite from the festival fun. 

Event organiser Andy Scott said: “We have been working on bringing this event to Southport for the past three years. This is a brilliant new event for Southport. We are looking forward to making this an annual festival.”
