Nozstock has always had family at its heart, believing that festivals should be a great place for everyone, regardless of age. This award-winning festival offers free workshops, classes, games and crafts, dedicated family camping with showers, child-sized loos, baby changing and bottle warming facilities. Best of all, under 12’s tickets are free, making it an excellent value choice for families!
Family is everything to Nozstock, and you’ll feel part of its extended one the minute you pith up.
The dedicated children’s area ‘Little Wonderland’ is run by the award-winning team at Spare Room Arts, who offer a jam-packed timetable of FREE activities suitable for all ages. Previous workshops have included beatboxing, DJing, hula-hooping, poetry, yoga, plasticine animation workshops, and much more. On top of that, they will be providing an array of crafting activities, all with a green ethos.
Now in its 25th year, Nozstock is set in a beautiful rural part of Herefordshire. Starting life as a party for relatives and friends, Nozstock has grown organically over the years into an experience where a sense of belonging still holds true. There is a warm, inclusive welcome, an ethos of fun and participation, and an incredible array of entertainment for an event of this size. With 10 venues including many nooks, crannies and secret wooded glades to discover Nozstockers are invited on a journey of discovery through the dingles and the dells of this magical site.
The Hidden Valley is landscaped around a ramshackle Tudor farmhouse. It sits behind the main ORCHARD STAGE and is set at the foot of a natural arena on the side of the gently sloping valley. Alongside the farmhouse is the GARDEN STAGE, which provides a more eclectic line up, turning electronic by sundown whilst converted cowshed the CUBICLES pushes out sub-thumping bass, this year hosted on Saturday by the legendary drum ‘n bass label RAM Records. With further music (including a new electro-swing stage), theatre, comedy stages and tents dotted around the site Nozstock offers a cornucopia of wonders to explore.
With more to offer than ever before you’ll be having just as much fun in Little Wonderland as the kids! Set deep in the Dingle, children will be kept thrilled and busy for hours in a safe and engaging environment.
Sofas offer a cosy retreat while the youngsters enjoy themselves and it’s near enough to the café to treat yourself to a quick caramel slice before storytime…. Not to be missed, Little Wonderland is a definite port of call for all children, young and old!
