Lunar Festival

Returning in 2020

Location: The Umberslade Estate, B94 5AE

Size: 13,000

Curated by the Moseley Folk Festival organisers, a well loved festival by Brummies and music fans alike. Less than 8 miles from Birmingham, yet set in the rolling hills of the Warwickshire countryside, this festival looks like a very exciting addition to the calendar.

Site and facilities

The site is small and easy to navigate for children and families. This makes it great for older children who want a little bit of independence to visit the stalls, but you can still keep an eye on them easily.Parking is available close to the camping areas.

Quiet Camping is available on two sites for 2015- one for families which is next to Umberslade Children’s Farm and one for everyone else. Entry into the farm is available for a reduced price.

Activities

Lunar provide a really interesting selection of activities for children. This year’s activities include the Pink Moon Meadow, which includes sports, lunar olympics, hip hop theatre, felt workshops, Northern Soul Dance School, green crafts, drumming workshops and bushcraft.

Food and Drink

There are plenty of food options available, many from Birmingham’s well established street food scene. One thing which sounds particularly exciting is the Real Italian Acrobatic Pizza stall!  Food is available for vegetarians and there is a cafe serving child friendly food in the pink moon meadow. Alcoholic drinks are available from the bar which is run by local brewery Purity.
