Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts has extended its partnership with Coolabi Group, which will see the much-loved Clangers, from the BAFTA and Broadcast award-winning children’s TV show, continue to delight young guests.
The pink, mouse-like creatures who communicate in whistles and live out in space on their Little Blue Planet, will continue to make regular appearances at Gulliver’s four UK resorts after the agreement was renewed until December 2023.
The hugely popular show, originally created by Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate, first made its debut on BBC Television in 1969, and returned to CBeebies in 2015 with three brand-new series and a total of 104 new episodes to date.
The partnership, in place since 2020, has proved a big hit with families and pre-schoolers at Gulliver’s parks. It includes a 15-minute live Clangers stage show with Tiny and Small Clanger and special hotel and birthday packages with meet and greets and photo opportunities.
This summer, Tiny and Small Clanger will return to Gulliver’s World in Warrington for daily appearances and an exclusive stage show.
Dean Kimberley, director of loyalty and marketing at Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts, said: “We’re thrilled to extend this important partnership with Coolabi Group which will see the Clangers continue to make regular appearances at Gulliver’s resorts.
“We have a very productive relationship with Coolabi and creative ideas about how to develop this partnership even further. Our guests love The Clangers so we’re so pleased they will continue to bring families magical moments at Gulliver’s.”
Michael Dee, director of content, Coolabi Group, said: “Clangers is an interactive and well-loved brand that resonates with children and all generations of their families, so it is wonderful that we are continuing our fantastic working relationship with Gulliver’s to bring Tiny and Small to life at its resorts across the UK.
