Lucky Tweet

August 4, 2012 Off By Laura TMOT
This morning I saw a tweet from one of our favourite Cbeebies presenters Alex regarding an event at Media City in Salford. With the sun shining we headed down there.

CBBC favourites’ Sam & Mark will host a weekend of sporting fun in the Piazza at MediaCityUK on the 4th and 5th August.
 
From Midday to 5pm, CBBC viewers will have a chance to take part in a wide range of free activities organised in conjunction with local sporting groups. Activities will include: Athletics, Football, Basketball, Sailing, Gymnastics and Cheerleading. Plus Shaun the Sheep’s Championsheeps will transform an area of the piazza into a baa-rillant farmyard with sporting challenges for the whole family.
 
Throughout the afternoon Sam & Mark will be live on stage and will be taking part in a number of sporting challenges.
 
Speaking about the event Sam & Mark says: “ We can’t wait, it’s going to be amazing. It is a real chance for CBBC audiences to get involved in the Olympic spirit.”
 
For younger viewers there will be a special CBeebies tent that will host craft and story telling sessions from CBeebies Alex Winters and a chance to get active with Fun Tots.
 
And the whole family can keep update with some of the biggest battles from London 2012 live from the Olympic Live Site, with coverage on the Big Screen.
 
Sam & Mark’s CBBC Sports Day is being held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August on the Piazza, MediaCityUK, Salford at 12 noon – 5pm. Tickets are not required for the event so families can pop along throughout the afternoon to join in the fun.

Alex’s storytelling is amazing and the girls loved it and I also got to meet his gorgeous family and hear all about there trip to Nickelodeon land. Alex is as lovely in real life as he is on twitter and I cant wait to see him again (a lot) over the coming weeks as our paths cross as i go to Cbeebies singalong next weekend and then Lollibop the weekend after.
