TEST Valley residents are invited to the UK’s number one family theme park to meet a group of television stars.

Ben and Holly from Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom and PJ masks will be making special appearances at Paultons Park Home of Peppa Pig World in Ower.

From June 22 to June 23, Fairy princess Holly and her friend, Ben Elf, who live in a tiny land where flowers and grass grow above the tallest towers, will be meeting fans of the show.

Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, which is made by the creators of Peppa Pig, helps children learn about the value of friendship through the programme’s adventures.

Children will also have the chance to meet stars of the PJ Masks team, such as Catboy, Gekko and Owlette, from June 29 to June 30.

The characters from the television show are known for transforming into superheroes each night to foil their enemies’ evil plans.

The PJ Masks team will be meeting fans from 11.10am each day.

James Mancey, operations director at Paultons Park, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the PJ Masks characters and Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom to Paultons Park this June.

“The meet and greet sessions offer little ones a magical experience with their TV heroes, which combined with the wide variety of fun and entertainment available at Paultons Park, will create wonderful lasting memories for children and their parents to treasure.”

The meet and greet sessions are available at no additional cost and visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Day entry tickets to Paultons Park start from £30.50 when bought online and in advance. Children under one metre in height receive free entry.

Paultons Park is home to four themed worlds, including the UK’s only Peppa Pig World and the Jurassic-themed Lost Kingdom.

The park is located at the edge of the New Forest spanning across 140 acres, which offers over 70 rides and attractions.

In July 2018, Paultons Park won TripAdvisor’s best-rated UK amusement park for the third year in a row. It is the only park to have received this award for three years running.

Paultons Park was also awarded the ninth best-rated amusement park in Europe and 24th in the world.
