20th - 23rd July 2023
Location: Standon Lordship Manor House, Hertfordshire
Highlights for kids and families:
The Swimming Pool!
Standon has several areas dedicated to kid’s activities and all ages are extremely well catered for.
The dressing up theme is taken very seriously at Standon with the majority of families getting dressed up in groups to add to the great atmosphere.
Standon Calling’s founder Alex Trenchard says, “What makes Standon Calling different is that is has evolved from a party into a festival over the years. In doing so has retained its intimacy and house party feel where kids can run about in a safe environment on the lawn taking a dip in the pool”
** PARENT REVIEWS: 2013 & 2011 **
Themed Fancy Dress / Swimming Pool / All-Night Bars / On-Site Nightclub / Interactive Theatre
Standon Calling is the UK’s only festival with a swimming pool!
It’s a three-day party with musical icons, breakthrough acts, themed fancy dress, an on-site nightclub and all-night bars (for those parents who have managed to be off-duty!)
Capped at just 5,000 people, Standon Calling achieves an intimate festival vibe with lots of new friends just waiting to be found.
Tickets: Available from the website.

Not dog-friendly at all! And if I had kids I certainly wouldn’t bring them here – http://www.izzydabbles.co.uk/standon-calling/
I’m sorry to hear about your experience of Standon Calling. We don’t have enough writers to attend every festival, every year, so we appreciate you commenting about the ‘dog friendly’ situation.
Hey I’m not sure if my comment posted before or if i posted it on a review from last year oops.. but I was lucky enough to attend standon and also bump into you at the festival where you took a rather lovely black and white photo of me and my boyfriend and I was wondering whether you could possibly send that to me? X thanks emma
Mine too Debbie, see you there. Sam 🙂
Our kids are looking forward to this more than Christmas!
