Magical Festival

No dates yet

Location: BordeHill Gardens, Haywards Heath, RH17 5HP

Website: www.magicalfestival.co.uk

Magical started out as a party of friends in 2016 and has expanded into a festival, opening to the public in 2018 for the first time.

Set on the beautiful Borde Hill Gardens in East Sussex, the line-up reflects the 90’s dance clubbing scene that the organisers grew up in.

Magical is a non profit company run by volunteers (our favourite kind!) and they also run free events throughout the year to benefit the community.

Magical Festival

From Magical’s founders:

“Magical is organised by a bunch of great friends who grew up in the 90’s dance scene. Now we’re all grown up, semi-sensible with many friends who who have kids. We’ve created Magical as a place for adults to come and enjoy uplifting music, dance and be inspired in a safe environment – which means they can bring kids along too.

Family Camping

Magical has a designated family camping area, at the furthest point away from the late-night music (on until 2am).

Magical Festival

Kids’ Activities

  • Kids dome with inspirational activities, arts & crafts, and fun times – primarily targeted at kids aged up to 12.
  • Big Fish Little Fish (2-4 hour party people – the ultimate family rave!)
  • Tiny Dancers (the biggest little party in town!)
  • Treasure hunt
  • Bouncy castle
  • Outdoor games
  • Wide open space for kids to run around
  • A few surprises along the way
  • Kids are welcome at all music stages (bring ear defenders!)

Make sure you bring your children’s (and your) swimsuits for the slip-and-slide!

New Discoveries for 2019

It’s great to have our favourite festivals that we return to year after year. But our writers are always aware of the wealth of exciting family festivals that we are yet to have covered on this site.

This year we’re lucky enough to have something new to try each month of the festival season. Therefore we have put together a guide of all the festivals new to Festival Kidz for 2019. We hope it inspires you to try something different too.

At the end of May, Lisa M is heading off to Cornwall for The Great Estate, June sees FestivalKidz trying out Woodlands Festival. In July, Naomi visits Magical Festival, and in August Sarah is hoping to make it to Maui Waui.

Remember to check back to see what we thought of our new discoveries when we review them later in the year.
