I sit typing this up in a Holiday Inn, but not just any Holiday Inn, this is the closest Holiday Inn in the world to Peppa Pig World and we will be there in less than 12 hours time.
2012 might be a historic date for Southampton with it being one hundred years since Titanic sank but it will also mark the first meeting of Isabelle Jane Newman and Peppa Pig in the flesh.
Iz is pretty much unawares of the meeting that awaits, not that we have blindfolded her and put her in our boot or anything, in fact she was very much swotting up on the subject as we headed to our hotel with the latest issue (thanks to Gavin and Shona) of Peppa Pig magazine.
One thing is for sure, you can expect phasers to be set to fun from 6am in the morning as we rise and shine waiting for the park to open at 10am, just please don’t let it be closed like Wally World in National Lampoons Vacation, I may not be held accountable for my actions!
To be fair we don’t really know what to expect either, the only thing we hope is that it is nothing like Potato City, which is perhaps one of the most insane/brilliant pieces of children’s television I have seen in recent years. See the episode below, you’ll never look at a potato in quite the same way again…or potato based theme parks for that matter.
