The greatest family friendly festivals to just take the kids

Sam and I also are both firm believers that your life doesn’t need to alter when you’ve got children. Naturally, it will change plenty (for both the better while the worse!) you don’t must alter as being a person and also you don’t should stop doing the things you like.

One thing Sam and I also have constantly loved will probably festivals.

Since we went along to Leeds Festival in the past in 2004 we’ve been hooked (wow, which makes me seem REALLY old).

Since we have George and Joseph we can’t wait to start out planning to festivals with the young ones. We’re perhaps not gonna any this present year once we don’t want to camp until Joseph is resting slightly better. (He nevertheless wakes up once or twice every evening which child includes a strong pair of lungs on him so we’re planning to wait until he won’t get up the complete campsite together with his howls.)

But next summer time we’ve a few family friendly festivals on our wishlist…

Camp Bestival is set into the grounds of Lulworth Castle in Dorset plus they have activities for all from age 2 to 62! They’ve got areas for little young ones and big children, a toddler area as well as the pioneering Breastival Mother and Baby relax area for anybody who does take their baba! This year you’ll find the Insect Circus, Art Town where paint and glitter was the order for the day, the Kids’ Catwalk, fairground trips, facepainting plus smooth Play Tent and Sandpit

It’s additionally awesome they have a teenager’s area for 13-17 year olds.

Not to be confused with Burning guy Festival (which really doesn’t be seemingly family friendly event at all!) Green guy Festival into the Brecon Beacons is a event surrounded by hills, woodlands, waterfalls and streams. Exactly how idyllic!

There’s a ‘Little Folk’ area ‘packed with colourful creations and tree-swinging tykes’.

Blissfields Festival is the bizarre and it has a whole lineup of functions for children in the Angel Gardens. The dry paint battle and the Unicorn, Fox and Hare Lantern Parade sound like they are often the highlights in 2010!

We additionally love that Blissfields Festival provides a school leave of absence page for the kid’s school to describe just how academic the event are going to be.

I’ve gone to Festival Number 6 several times now and discovered it to be that family members friendly event. Set in the magical village of Portmeirion in Wales, this can be a gorgeous event. There are loads of children there and as it’s a ‘premium festival’ (basically, actually expensive so you don’t get any knobheads there!) and that means you don’t have that drunken vibe you have at most of the festivals.

In 2010 they’ve introduced the small Big Top Kid’s Cove for under 11’s.

The Big Feastival is all about music, food and household fun and is set on Alex James’ farm in Cotswolds (yes, that’s the bassist from Blur). There’s a fantastic music line-up but meals is the celebrity attraction right here. For the children, there’s guest appearances from Justin Fletcher, Dick and Dom and Paw Patrol. George would absolutely lose his head if Justin and Marshall were in identical room together!

Blue Dot festival is held in Jordrell Bank in Cheshire. It’s a geeky festival having a great line-up and ‘Family Encounters’ area guarantees the tiny ones are entertained. I think that one is more for older kids as there’s many learning how to be done while they learn how to fly and learn to harness the effectiveness of the wind.

Car-Fest is another Cheshire event held for Children in Need therefore assembled by Chris Evans. Now don’t allow the name place you down. Sam is wanting to convince me to go to this for a long time but I’d assumed it was a vehicle event therefore dismissed it immediately. Nonetheless it’s a lot more than simply cars and it is a magical mix of food, music, activity, the world’s biggest custard cake fight, plenty of family enjoyable and…yea..some cars too.
