Nickelodeon UK has announced that it is bringing Slimefest to the SSE Arena, Wembley on October 26, in partnership with DHP Family. Slimefest is an event for children with music, mayhem and lots of slime.

The addition of a new location follows the event’s success in Blackpool. Slimefest 2020 will take place at The Arena at Blackpool Pleasure Beach on October 17-19 and will then move to the SSE Arena in London for the first time ever. DHP Family will present two shows on October 26 at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Virginia Monaghan, vice president of events and experiences, ViacomCBS Networks International, comments: “We can’t wait to bring Slimefest back for a fifth year; it’s been such a huge success in Blackpool so we’re looking forward to returning to the UK’s favourite beach resort. Expanding the shows to the iconic arena in Wembley is a testament to the event and its affinity with kids and parents alike. London and Blackpool – prepare for the ultimate badge of honour from us at Nickelodeon… slime!”

Daniel Ealam, director of Live at DHP Family, says: “We’re hugely excited to be partnering with Nickelodeon to launch the first ever London edition of Slimefest! After several highly successful years in Blackpool, it is the natural next step to bring this amazing show to the capital, and The SSE Arena, Wembley is the perfect fit for this unique live event!”

Longstanding Slimefest hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely are returning to the stage and will be joined by Max and Harvey and Holly H for all eight shows.

More than 100,000 people have attended related Slimefest events across the globe in the US, Australia, Italy, UK, Germany and Spain.
