Fleur East, Diversity and other top performers will be heading to Blackpool this weekend for a family-friendly event.

Nickelodeon has partnered with Blackpool Pleasure Beach to bring us Slimefest – a event which is packed with plenty of entertainment, performers... and slime.

Fleur East, who will be headlining Slimefest on Saturday 16th October, first achieved notoriety for a succession of chart topping singles, and  she now continues to make waves across national radio and TV through her role as a broadcaster, hosting on shows such as This Morning and her Hits Radio show.

She is also a presenter on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and fronting new primetime ITV game show, The Void, alongside Ashley Banjo.

Blessing Chitapa, the 18-year-old Zimbabwe-born vocal powerhouse from Dudley and reigning champion of ‘The Voice’, will appear across both days of the slime filled event, performing gospel-infused songs from her newly released debut album ‘Count My Blessings’.

They will be joining number 1 artist John Newman and BAFTA award-winning dance group Diversity, who have been confirmed to perform earlier this year.

Newman will be joining the Slimefest mayhem for the very first time, while iconic dance group Diversity, who will be performing across all  shows, will be returning for a fifth slime-filled year at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

With one of the most distinctive voices in music and a string of number 1 singles, Newman is guaranteed to have ticket holders rocking all night when he performs Sunday 17th October and belts out some of his most iconic hits.

The entire event will be hosted by Diversity’s Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, as well as social media stars and singers Max & Harvey, and TikTok sensation Holly H.

The extravaganza will kick-off Saturday 16th October with shows at 1pm and 6pm across both days.

How to get tickets

Ticket prices start from £22.50 and many are still available for selected times and dates – but you will have to scoop them up quickly.

‘Slime pit tickets’ are only available to children aged 8-15 years old who are accompanied by a parent or guardian who have purchased a Seated or an Adult Standing Ticket.

Children in the slime pit can expect to get very messy.
