Hold on to your party hats, because Hoo-Ha festival is back in August. For the third year, Colston Hall comes alive for three days, filled with music, mirth, and rip-roaring fun for all the family. With interactive shows, awesome activities and tons of surprises in store around each corner, everyone is invited to the Hoo-Ha party. This year’s line-up includes kids TV legends Dick and Dom, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes live, and Mischief and Mysteries in Moominvalley. Other highlights include an interactive show for dinosaur lovers with Bristol-based Bakehouse Factory and Bristol Zoo, featuring Professor T Rex, assisted by Velocity Raptor and Terry Dactyl as well as one ginormous birthday party to celebrate Colston Hall’s 150th featuring Andy Day, and DJ Cheeba.
