There’s even more to do this year and all of the money that we’ve charged for kids tickets is being spent on the kids. We have storytelling from two different great storytellers: Walk the Lines, and The Travelling Talesman.

We have workshops so you can have a go at juggling and circus skills (Wessex Circus), face-painting (Dragonfly), loads of arts and crafts (Rose Perry Arts), puppet shows (Pickle Jar Arts) and drama and games (Kylie from Swoosh of the Curtain) workshops.

And this year we see the return of our Space Hopper Obstacle Course, missile-throwing hoopla, and welly wanging!

We have a music workshop led by some of our younger performers at the festival – this year it will be the brilliant fiddle-mandolin duo Aneiron Jones and Joe Tozer. This is for young people that can already play their instruments and gives them a chance to get together with other young ‘folkies’ (and not so ‘folkies’) and make some noise! Last year this workshop culminated in a the group getting up on stage for a performance on the Sunday afternoon.

We must stress that Festival organisers and events leaders cannot take responsibility for the care of children. Parents must be directly and fully responsible for the care of their children at all times during the festival.
