Best Family Festivals of 2018!

Introducing the “Festival Kidz Recommended” stamp!

We wanted to give the best family festivals our ‘stamp of approval’ – as a reward for the great entertainment they have put on and the memories they have made for us.

These are the festivals that our writers return to year after year – those that we would feel like if we missed it we would be missing out. Many of us have made friends that we only see at these festivals – because we live nowhere near each other but we all return every year. These are the special festivals, and they deserve to be recognised.

Just So’s 2018 Programme Preview

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…
