What is your child safety policy?

The safety of all children is our utmost priority.  All children must be supervised at all times.


Upon entry, each child will be given a wristband which they must wear.  On this wrist band you need to write your name and number.  In the unlikely event that you become separated, we will give you a call.


If a child becomes separated from their grown up, as soon as we are alerted the whole site will go into lock down.  This means no one can leave or enter until you are reunited with your child.  


Are you looking for Exhibitors?

If you run a stonking great activity and think you’ve got something special to share with our discerning under 14 patrons, or if perhaps you retail child-focussed products then we’d love to hear from you.

Do you need volunteers?

Yes. The festival will be entirely dependent on volunteers. We’ll need 20 people to donate their time in order for the event to succeed. Our festival is privately-funded and without community support, we won’t last. We need you to help. Get in touch to see how your fabulous skills can help make this festival magical.  Contact us on

Is the festival fully accessible?
The festival is fully accessible. We let carers in for free with a registered disabled person.  Please don’t be offended if our security or admissions team ask to see your disability registration upon entry as not all disabilities are visible.

Will pictures be taken of my child?

The Kids' Fest have official photographers and videographers on site, where the images may be used in promotion of our event via the internet or social media.  Our Photographers will always be wearing official lanyards and t-shirts, and will always try to ask permission of the parent or guardian. If you have seen an image of your child having a lovely time that you wish for us to remove from any of our online social media please contact 



We are sorry but only guide dogs are allowed on site.
