For all those going to Boomtown this year…
We are introducing the first Boomtown Festival Kidz Parents Meetup!
If like us, you don’t have any friends who would even attempt Boomtown, why not meet up with me and a few other parents for a night out? Read more…
The Greatest Show
My first Boomtown was like a child’s first visit to the circus. Bright lights, sound, whirling colour, and with that sense of genuine excitement and adventure you feel when you have no idea what’s going to happen next.
From the moment we walked out over the wonderfully relaxed Whistlers Green to look out over the Vegas style city of Downtown I knew I was somewhere special.
These are our writers’ favourite festivals in South England. Festival-goers down south have lots to choose from ranging from small and laid back to exciting and busy – it depends what you’re into!
For more festivals please see our special family friendly festival map.

One CRAZY pop-up city!
Review by Sarah, Jeff, Ash (aged 15) and Poppy (aged 8)
We drove from Brighton on Thursday the 7th excited and looking forward to our very first Boomtown Fair experience with our two children Ash (15) and Poppy (8). The sun shone, radio played and we set off. Winchester here we come. The festival is set in the beautiful surroundings of the Matterley Bowl.
A pop-up city where the impossible is possible and the abnormal is normal!
KidzTown at BoomTown has had a growth spurt in 2014.
At the heart of the city that is BoomTown, tucked between OldTown and the Mines, KidzTown provides it’s very own mecca of mischief and make-believe!
The ‘larger than life festival’ will see a crazy selection of activities and interactive installations inspired by the bonkers BoomTown culture. Previously described at FestivalKidz as ‘not for the faint hearted’, KidzTown provides a world of delight for mini Boomers to really ROAR! Read more…
