He sings, jokes, drives a giggle-mobile and gets to wear his pyjamas in the daytime.
ABC TV star Jimmy Giggle is the headline performer for the 2017 Fun4Kids Festival.
It’s Jimmy’s first time at Fun4Kids and he can’t wait.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of such a great kids’ festival and looking forward to entertaining and having fun in Warrnambool,” Jimmy said.
Jimmy will feature in four shows over two days of the festival – Friday 7 July and Saturday 8 July.
In another first for Fun4Kids the very funny Frank Woodley – a hit with kids and grown-ups – joins the roster of top performers.
Along with live performances kids can get stuck into plenty of hands-on activities.
Ever seen Toy Story and thought Sid’s mutant toy creations were kind cool? If so, you’ll love the FUNKYTOYFACE workshops.
For the big kids – using a hot glue gun, small hand tools and assorted plastic toys, plastic cast-offs and recycled products participants walk away with a FUNKYTOYFACE portrait ready to hang.
These workshops have been created by Sydney-based sculptor and printmaker Freya Jobbins whose works have been exhibited across Australia and in England, Norway, Germany, Dubai, New York, San Francisco and Tel-Aviv.
Along with the new attractions a number of the perennially popular activities have been retained including the foam building blocks (Coates Tradie Town), woodwork zone (Fairbrother Build It) and the animal nursery (Emmanuel College Farm Yard).
And Fun4Kids tickets will also admit festival-goers to the adjacent 10-pin bowling venue, The Bowl.
The main Fun4Kids action takes place in a purpose-built undercover “village” set up on Warrnambool’s Civic Green and for the first time Fun4Kids has also set up “off-campus” with a second site at Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village.
At Flagstaff Hill children can let their creative side flourish in a dedicated craft area, join Festus McBoyle for a game of Pirate Olympics, cook up a storm in our hands-on cooking sessions, learn the art of papermaking, see our spinners and weavers in action and chat with our blacksmith and dressmakers as they ply their trades.
Dress in period costume and re-live the discipline of school life in the 1870s in the reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic classes.
The cannon at Flagstaff Hill will be fired and kids can meet the famous maremma (think Oddball) guardian dogs at 10am, noon and 2.30pm on each day of the festival.
A new feature is the evening schedule with the fun programmed to continue until 7pm every night of the festival except Sunday 9 July.
Fun4Kids ticketing is more flexible that before with single or family passes for one, two or five days.
The new night passes provide entry from 4pm to 7pm and are great value at just $20.
