South West England: Best Family Festivals 2018

The South West of England – wild and hilly with spectacular views. These three festivals are very different but one thing that they all share is you will get plenty of fresh air and exercise. And if you have a children’s festival wagon – make sure you put in a bit of training before you go!

For more festivals please see our special family friendly festival map.

We know there are other amazing festivals that we are missing out – and we’re attempting to get our reviewers around as many festivals as we can. The festivals below are our tried and tested choices, ones our writers go back to year after year.

Wales and border: Best Family Festivals 2018

These are our writers’ favourite festivals in Wales and the welsh border. Although not all in the same country, the festivals on the Welsh border are close enough to share that same wild, green, close-to-nature atmosphere. You may not even get a phone signal!

Does this mean that they are more likely to get rain? Yes. Does this also mean that they are better able to handle rain? A big YES!

For more festivals please see our special family friendly festival map.

cornbury logo

It feels like no time at all since we were lamenting the loss of Cornbury Festival in our 2017 review. Last summer, the Cornbury faithful were told, would see the last ever Cornbury.

Skip to October: the news came in our mailbox that promoter Hugh Philimore, off the back of a huge public response, had decided to resurrect the festival!

Nozstock 2018 Preview

This summer Nozstock: The Hidden Valley celebrates its 20th anniversary, entering a small group of festivals who have reached two decades of creating magic each summer.  It’s a huge achievement for the family-fun festival which is set across their working farm in the rolling hills of Herefordshire.  This year the festival runs from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd July.

It is an event which has grown from a group of like-minded friends gathered together many years ago into a truly mesmeric experience of wonder and enchantment for all the ages.

Looking Forward to Camp Bestival 2018

Camp Bestival is a firm favourite here at Festival Kidz and we are very excited about the 2018 edition. Much of the line up has already been announced, and it’s looking fantastic.

This Year’s Camp Bestival Theme

2018 has a nautical theme – think pirates, mermaids, jellyfish, sharks and crocodiles. There will be a whole host of seafaring themed entertainment to look forward to this year.
