Yay! It’s nearly time to come and have loads of family festival fun with us in the Kidzone!

We can’t wait and we’ve got some real treats lined up for you this year, with a packed stage line up featuring 3 incredible, original shows from the hugely creative Noisy Oyster Theatre, mind-boggling tricks and laughs with  Huxley Magic, Peppa Pig and her festival stories and song, Wolly the bonkers stunt clown, Wonky Races with some mad antics and games, Carnival Dance and an animal filled parade with the Shademakers, Rascal Raves and our one and only Kids Talent Show.

So really you could just lay down your picnic blanket in front of the stage and let us entertain you. But wait! Get back up and look around! 

We’ve also got circus skills workshops with Ryde Extreme Performers, awesome natural crafts and nature play with Forest Schools, a packed Dressing Up Tent with catwalk and photobooth, a Face-painting Tent, a Craft Tent, filled with rotating “Make and Take” activities, including Kate and her team of community artists bringing us a “Wearing Art” extravaganza, Peppa Pig arts and crafts on Saturday, willow rod making and a whole heap of other creative fun. Even tiny ones can join the fun as we have a special Toddler Tent, with music and art for the under 5’s. 

We so delighted that Andy can join us again with his legendary people-powered Swingboats and Chairoplanes, so the kids can ride until they get dizzy, and expect Lego play, bubbles, colourful group painting with Nicola Gibbs, storytime and a whole lot more, as we just can’t stop ourselves bringing more to the party!

If you and your family arrive in time for play on Friday we’ve also got an Adventure Activities takeover, with Bushcraft and games, and our stage will feature performances from the young talent Medina Maestro, and possibly a rave!

See you soon

Join Peppa on Saturday
