Just So 2017

Just So is a firm favourite here at Festival Kidz. We love the creativity that goes into every aspect of this wonderful family festival, from thoughtful planning through to perfect execution. It is quite simply a haven for families, filled with wonder and magic, where children can be children and adults can be… well, children too.

Six reasons to be excited about 2018

A Glastonbury Festival fallow year is always a strange one for the people that go every year. I used to be one of them – and even now I still get a pang every year when it’s on – so I understand that you might have a festival-shaped hole to fill.

Still let’s hope that the 2018 hole isn’t just full of mud! Although even if it is, it won’t stop us from having fun.

The great thing is that now there are so many other festivals to go to (we have over 150 on our site, with more added every year) that you could use this year to explore something completely new. And if you find an amazing one, please do share it with us on our Facebook page, or email us on chat@festivalkidz.com!

Our 2017 Festival Highlights

Our festival highlights – Eloise (10) Charlotte (7) & Amelie (7)

The summer of 2017 was amazing. We had rain, we had mud, we had boiling hot sunshine… Yet we managed to dance our way through everything the British weather decided to throw at us.

We made new friends, we had paint fights, we learned to both throw and catch the diabolo, and most of all we found enjoyment in squelching through the mud!

Beware Ticket Payment Plans!

Ticket Clip ArtMany teenagers want to go to festivals with their friends (and not their parents!) so it’s only fair they pay for their own ticket. This is where ticket payment plans come in handy.

However, given the experience of a teenager featured on the BBC Radio 4 consumer advice program “You and Yours” today you may want to check the small print before signing up.  Read more…

Eco-friendly Camping Tips

Festivals are a big strain on the environment. Huge amounts of waste are created by events every weekend in the UK, sending hundreds of tons of extra waste in to landfill or off for incineration. But eco-friendly camping is not that hard.

For many families who live eco-conscious lives at home, the good efforts go straight out of the window when camping. There seems to be a disposable version of almost everything these days, and our throw away society is all too apparent when you see the piles of camping equipment and rubbish discarded on a Monday morning after a festival.

WIN FOLK BY THE OAK TICKETS!

A family friendly festival through and through

Folk by the Oak is just outside London, but its leafy location feels a million miles away. As the UK’s largest one day folk festival it promises all the open air buzz of a 3 day festival packed into one joyous day of music, fun and bunting!

Born in 2008; the fruition of a long held dream for festival directors Adam and Caroline Slough, Folk by the Oak is about to celebrate the 10th festival with a sensational 2017 line-up that includes Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands to name but a few.
