For Kids

To keep our younger festival goers entertained you'll find a 'Kids Corner' with a range of activities for them to enjoy. No need to put your hands in your pockets - everything is FREE.

And, the first 50 children through the gate each day will receive a FREE Rossi ice cream cone or tub.

Some of the activities need to be pre-booked in advance to ensure your place. When booking you must purchase your festival entry tickets at the same time.  Please note there are specific age ranges for each of the activities.
