Nibley Festival has grown from its origins as a quaint village party to a full-blown music festival, hosting 5,000 guests and spanning four stages. The success is down to a devoted organising committee and the full support of the locals. Nibley truly has the most welcoming atmosphere.
The names on the line up get bigger each year but Nibley remains a low-cost, not-for-profit venture and is never over-crowded.
What are the highlights for families?
The organisers know that for you to have a good time, the kids have got to have fun. There’s loads for them to do at Nibley and the overwhelming majority of it is completely free.
Nibley’s charity partner this year is Allsorts, who support families with children with additional needs – there will be a Mobiloo available for use and they are running a film- based treasure hunt around the site.
Festival favourites Junkfish and The Flying Seagulls will be in attendance as well as Vibe Roulette, who will be bringing a house party with a twist from the same team as Junior Jungle!
There is also a climbing wall and exhilarating demonstrations by Savage Skills BMX stunt display team.
But that’s not all! DJ workshops, bubble and balloon shows, forest school and bushcraft, football skills, a Silly Science show, storytelling and even more is planned for families over the weekend.
It’s a fab lineup of activities to keep both little and big people happy.
What makes Nibley Festival unique?
Nibley is such a friendly festival in a beautiful Cotswolds location, run solely by volunteers. There are so many well thought out and engaging activities for kids that they will never be short of entertainment.
Plus the children’s activities are almost entirely free – only the ferris wheel is charged!
