All activities are free with the festival entrance fees

Activity timings:

  • 9am to 12:45pm - We divide the children into different age groups, and do activities with them. Each group has allocated monitors (Age groups 0-3, 4-7, 8-10, 11-12, 13+)
  • 2pm to 4pm - free play, with a focus on circus: making and using hula hoops, juggling balls, poi, staffs etc
  • 4pm to 5:30pm - more specific activities are on offer, mainly aimed at children aged 8+

Younger children:

  • Children aged 0-3 must be accompanied by an adult, but you may also be able to take "turns" with another parent, as you quickly make friends at the festival!
  • Children from age groups 4-7 will be signed in and out, giving you added security that your children are being looked after safely
