CBBC: Mr Bloom’s Big Day Out

If you’ve got a 6-year-old you’ll know who Mr Bloom is. Otherwise, not so much.

Mr Bloom’s Big Day Out takes the popular CBBC show around the UK giving children a chance to see Mr Bloom live, as well as learn more about gardening, cooking, numeracy and literacy.

This year it visited 8 cities over the summer.

I was one of a team of four event managers responsible for the on-site delivery – the usual fence, power, site permits, marquees, toilets. As this event was aimed at children, a strict child protection policy was also in operation.

In total over 120,000 parents and children came to the events, so everyone now knows about Margaret the cabbage!
