Family Friendly Festivals
Bringing your children to a festival may seem tricky but with so many festivals encouraging families to attend you can keep on going to festivals with your family! In-fact there are tons that are family friendly and include a host of generations. We have chosen our favourite festivals for all the family.
1. Camp Bestival 27-30th July 2017
Set in the magical surroundings of Lulworth Castle, Camp Bestival is considered a must for children and adults of all ages with magical surroundings. Those under 4 go for free but still need a ticket and under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.
2. Shambala Festival 24th – 27th August 2017
Shambala is the place to play, revitalise, and make lots of new friends by enjoying the eclectic mix that perfectly blends creativity and participation, meaning the festival really pushes the boundaries when it comes to embracing families. In 2013 this festival was voted the best ‘Kidz festival of the year’. With endless activities and a ‘bush camp’ this festival is perfect for the whole family.
3. Green Man Festival 17th – 20th August 2017
The Green Man Festival is set in the beautiful countryside in the Brecon Beacons in Wales. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and the music is diverse and beautiful. There’s a designated family camping area just a stone throw away from all the entertainment and the children’s area has bags free of fun workshops and activities!
4. Wilderness 3rd – 6th August 2017
Wilderness Festival is a little different, it’s so much more than a music festival, and it’s a gorgeous feast of arts, food and nature. Where to begin? There’s lots to offer for families activities range from costume making to movie workshops!
