Bounce Festival


Location: Old Deer Park, Richmond upon Thames

Size: 8,000

Bounce was born in 2013 from a desire to keep the kids entertained in the school holidays.

A 2 day event (no camping) held in The Old Dear Park, Richmond, London designed to spark the imagination of kids. With activities conceived and designed to be carried forward, helping all those who come to keep themselves entertained for weeks and maybe months ahead.

cycling2Bounce is designed for families with kids aged 4-12, with a few activities available for the younger tots in the Little Bouncers Corner with a soft play area, sand pits, mini-climbing wall, a playhouse and other toys.

All the activities are listed here on the website, so it’s probably best to judge how much of it you think your little ones will enjoy.



Public transport is recommended – This is London! Richmond Station is 5 minutes walk and Richmond town centre is very well connected with buses. In addition there is a secure bike park. If you are driving, there is limited parking and an NCP next to Richmond Station – charges apply.

Disabled access

The Old Deer Park venue for Bounce is an open park, so will be accessible, bearing in mind it is on grass, which may be affected by the weather. All the shows and many of the activities will still be suitable, with the likely exceptions of activities in No Limits, such as assault courses and bike riding.


Disabled children will still need to purchase a ticket, but registered carers can come for free. Just show your badge at the entrance.

There is limited Blue Badge Parking.
