Choosing a child-friendly festival
Whatever your tastes, there will be a festival to suit. Many mainstream festivals have dedicated child-friendly areas within the site, but that does mean you can end up feeling isolated from the main action. Others are set up deliberately to be family-friendly throughout.
Just So Festival, new this summer, is one weekend specifically aimed just at children and families. Sarah Bird is the festival Director. “We realized about a year ago,” says Sarah, “that although many festivals these days are brilliant for children, there wasn’t one that was specifically geared up for them.”
“The kids entertainment was always something added on, so we set about organizing a festival with children at the centre of everything. The site is intimate and manageable, the toilets ones in which you don’t gag and the food great for little ones.”
