Hip Hip Hooray! Chelmsford City Council has announced that the hugely popular 3foot People Festival will make a return to Chelmsford this summer.

Aimed solely at pre-school children, the 3foot People Festival welcomes over 14,000 little and big people for an exciting array of playful activities and amusements ready to inspire and entertain.

Children, parents and carers alike will be overwhelmed with wonder as they experience this unique festival of tents, stages and areas. This year, activities will include music and movement, theatre and storytelling, arts and crafts, sporting and interactive play, with numerous other attractions and performances that will be sure to entertain.

This is the largest not-for-profit outdoor festival exclusively for children aged 5 and under in the UK.

NOTE: This is not an overnight camping festival. It runs from 9.30am to 4pm each day.

3foot People Festival has so many activities on offer, including gym classes, art workshops, drama, music & movement, puppets, storytelling, a giant sand pit, crafts, science, a variety of sporting activities and a petting farm. There are also opportunities for creative play around every corner.

Festival Kidz are particularly impressed that there are workshops specifically for babies – who are often left out in festival programming – including baby signing and sensory activities.
