Mr Bloom is one of CBeebies best loved characters & has steadily been building a fan base with pre-schoolers & their grown-ups since 2011. The BAFTA nominated & RTS Award winning show has spawned numerous spin-off series with Mr Bloom appearing on a variety of CBeebies shows.
In addition to his screen presence Mr Bloom can be found performing live in a number of contexts either with his one-man stage show or with his four piece band of musical gardeners. He's appeared at Festivals, Light Switch-ons, Parades, Schools, Shopping Centres and more. So, if you have an event in mind, get in touch and lets discuss.

Creative Producer Mimi Faulks has 12 years of experience designing and delivering family friendly activities for public events. Workshops are always ‘make & take’ for the participant and currently feature ‘funky trilby style gardening hats’ much like CBeebies Mr. Bloom might wear.
Workshops are delivered by our dab-hand facilitators and are set within an endearing garden themed area which is surrounded wooden picket fencing and decorated with colourful bunting, brightly decorated flowerpots and Welly boot planters.
Participants are given an authentic child’s trilby hat and invited to take a seat at a workbench. Children decorate their hat to their own design, choosing a hat-band and utilising the array of recycled craft materials available to create a decorative trim. Once done, the hat is ready to wear straight away.
The visual impact this workshop can have on its location is huge. The sight of hundreds of mini Mr. Blooms dotted amongst the crowd wearing their unique hats is vivid. Adding a costume making activity such as this can provide a presents that’s fun, visual and a delightfully interactive element to your event. For more information please get in touch.
Given the popularity of Mr Bloom we are no longer able to offer public Meet & Greets. With the best will in the world, he is never able to meet everyone at any given event and which ultimately leads to disappointment for many. However, we can suggest that you run a competition for your event & that the winners are then able to meet Mr Bloom in a controlled environment. For more information please get in touch.
