In the final weekend of the VAULT Festival 2017, Mini Rumpus: Woodland Tails is taking over the tunnel venue beneath London’s Waterloo station to bring immersive parties, live music and performances, and is especially for families with a sense of fun and adventure.
Live music will be provided by Tell Tale Tusk, blending folk with jazz and world music styles they will tell twisted tales and tall stories through song. Returning to VAULT following a sell-out run of their own show ‘Becoming Shades’ are Chivaree Circus. The gravity-defying and eye-poppingly skillful troupe join Mini Rumpus with a variety of circus activities especially devised for families and children. ‘Seriously silly fun’ will be on the cards as Figs in Wigs lead the charge to VAULT Festival’s dance floor. Add to this fancy dress, arts, crafts, face painting and much more.

Cornbury Festival has had a successful 13 year run. It has provided a lovely, rather posh family-friendly event that has converted even the most festival-shy.
However, this year, after much deliberation, the 14th Cornbury Festival will be the last. The good folk at Cornbury are looking forward to going out with a bang.
They’ve promised us they are pulling out ALL the stops for The Fabulous Finale. There will be all the usual great stuff, an array of top talent, friends old and new. There may even be a few sparklers at the end.
Dancing, relaxing, playing, laughing, feasting…
These are the first five words that spring to mind when I think back on our four days at Cornbury. I think it’s testament to a really great festival, especially where children are involved, when you can come back feeling relaxed and switched off. We were lucky to have exactly that experience.
This week stargazers are in for a treat, as the ‘natural fireworks’ of the perseid meteor shower are going to be twice as bright this year (according to NASA).
This week we were invited along to the Science Museum’s new exhibition, Power UP, which runs from now until Sunday 7th August. Power UP features games, computers and consoles from the last 40 years. Everything on display is hands on and playable. Read more…
The fantastical festival that is Just So Festival is going one better than the usual nights under canvas this year with the chance to build your own bivouac and sleep under the forest canopy. Read more…
I’m always looking for fun things to do with my kids to keep them more interested in active outdoor play.
We’ve seen many slacklines set up at festivals, but it was always cool, fit, skater/surfer/free runner/base jumper type dudes doing it… I definitely do not fall into that group of people at all. Having said that, we bought a slackline for our daughters (but mainly so that I could try it out). Read more…
Blissfields is nearly upon us! As usual we look forward to some excellent music and one of the best and definitely most friendly kids’ fields around.
We talked to Angel Sam, of Angel Gardens who run the special kids’ area, about what she has in store this year. Read more…
