Jelly Festival boasts an eclectic line up of unplugged and acoustic music from genres of folk, funk, roots, indie, reggae, swing, balkan and live dance and much more.
What’s on for families?
The festival promises to be a great family friendly festival and encourages festival goers to relax and enjoy the homely atmosphere with tents such as The Living Room stage, The Bedroom Bar, The Kitchen and The Playroom where children can bounce and wobble in a jelly inspired play area and also get involved in workshops such as Circus Magic which will raise money for this festival’s chosen children’s charity.
There is a family camping area with its own facilities, located away from the music.

Set in the beautiful grounds of Compton Hall in Norfolk, Jelly Festival celebrated it’s fifth year and landed on one of the hottest days of the year so far, lucky considering so many festivals have either been cancelled or had difficulties due to the dreadful British Summer we have had so far.
We arrived at midday and drove in easily and were directed by stewards to the carpark. The walk to the main arena was less than 5 minutes.
The first thing we noticed was how small the festival site was and yet there seemed to be a lot crammed in. There was a main stage called the Living Room (which was decorated like someone’s living room funnily enough) the Bedroom Big Top, the Observatory Dance Dome, Summerhouse Cocktail Bar, and the Reggae Rumpus room. Due to the small size of the site there was a lot of sound bleed and I found I couldn’t really hear the individual stage’s music. So possibly too many stages for the size of the site.
