Family fun comes to The Needles this half-term with visits from magicians, musicians, stilt walkers and even Peppa Pig.
The Isle of Wight’s landmark attraction is hosting eight days of entertainment to keep the kids happy across the bank holiday weekend and beyond.
There will be free entertainment for visitors this month as street dance and Bollywood-style dance shows mix with balloon modellers, while Mickey Mouse and Peppa Pig greet visitors along the Needles’ main street.
There’s also music from local reggae legend Derek Sandy and performances by top magicians David Randini, Andy The Illusionist and Foxy the Funky Magic Genie.
Marino Zanti, general manager at The Needles Landmark Attraction, said: "We’re planning half-term so that it’s genuine fun for all the family. “Our attractions will be open all week, including the chairlift taking visitors from the Alum Bay cliff-tops to the beach below. We’re also pleased to be welcoming Wight Crystal Water and people from Taste of the Wight who will be offering free tastings of locally-sourced produce on Tuesday, May 30."
Half-term family fun at The Needles takes place from Saturday 27th May 27 to Saturday 3rd June.
Supersaver tickets are available online at The Needles’ website giving a 25% discount on all rides and attractions.
