Wow! 2015 was Larmer Tree’s 25th year!

Larmer Tree Festival 2016 Review

Peacock Display - Larmer tree Festival 2016Lovely Larmer Tree…

By Romany, with 4 kids (11, 13, 13, 13)

It’s the end of term, the children are flagging and I’m not sure that any of us have the energy left to do anything this weekend, let alone a festival! But we have such enduring happy memories of Larmer Tree Festival as a young family, that we wanted to see if it still retained its magic for us now they are a bit older. Read more…

When FestivalKidz met Shlomo

Hazel and Gwilym were fascinated to catch Shlomo’s beatbox workshop for kids on the Sunday afternoon and were even more excited to meet him. He turned out to be the most affable and friendly guy you could ever meet and he was great with our two.

When FestivalKidz met Bellowhead

Our children have been fans of the big band inspired traditional folk tellers since they were very young and now here at the Larmer Tree festival we were due to meet them. Paul Sartin and John Spiers agreed to do a short interview and being family men themselves they were happy to take questions from one shy 3 year old Gwilym and more talkative 5 year old Hazel.

25th Anniversary Party!

It would be fair to say that the Larmer Tree Festival is defiantly one to take the whole family, and yes that does include the grandparents, it was lovely to see so many there!

Having been a couple of times before, but only for the day, we were all looking forward to getting the full Larmer Tree experience. And with it being the 25th anniversary everyone was up for a good party. Read more…

Here are our top picks for 2015!

Whether a festival is good for you depends on what music you’re into and what other things you like doing at festivals, as well as the age of your kids. If you are new to festivals with kids, you may want to read our guide to Choosing the right Family-Friendly Festival.

We have included our affiliate links in the listings – if you click “Buy Tickets Now” you will go straight to the ticket page for your chosen festival. You will not pay anything for this but the festival will give us a small commission to keep Festival Kidz up and running – so please use them!

Larmer Tree Festival 2014 Review

Larmer Tree Festival 2014: 16th-20th July 2014

Review by Amy Battle and 3 children, aged between 9 and 12.

There comes a moment at any Festival where the adults want to collapse/drink beer/listen to their type of music/visit their inner hippie and the kids don’t. The younger generation wants to roam and wade in mud and buzz around doing their own thing in their own time. And it’s just this balance that the Larmer Tree Festival has cracked.  There’s something for everyone and then there still is somewhere to sit and chill when you just don’t want to be doing any stuff at all.

Now is a great time to start thinking about buying your festival tickets – most of the festivals offer ‘early bird’ prices, which means they are reduced if you book them early.
