Birmingham Hippodrome held their annual Summer in Southside festival last week and broke all records with 37,000 attendees and Darwin Escapes were one of the proud sponsors.

Here at Darwin Escapes, we sent Astro Duck (and a few human handlers) to showcase to the public what Darwin Escapes is all about. They were on hand to tell everyone all about the luxury, family friendly destinations available to have a fabulous holiday at. They also let people know about our holiday home owners destinations, where you can enjoy endless holidays in your very own luxury holiday home! Darwin Escapes has 22 handpicked locations across the UK, including 3 stunning golf clubs, so whatever type of holiday you’re looking for, Darwin Escapes will have the ideal destination for you.

Astro Duck and the team were in their element at the space themed family festival, which was celebrating 50 years since the first moon landing. Birmingham Hippodrome, the Arcadian and the Bullring Shopping Centre were all transformed into a lunar landscape. The main draw was the show-stopping Museum of the Moon, with the detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, as well as the spectacular Highly Sprung’s Urban Astronaut, which was a walkabout performance featuring an astronaut suspended 20 foot in the air!

The Darwin Escapes team had lots fun over the festival weekend, entertaining the crowds with their Hook a Duck game. If you managed to hook the right duck you could win your very own Astro Duck to take home and members of the public even had a chance to win a holiday at one of Darwin Escapes’ 19 holiday destinations too!
