Keeping the whole family entertained

2018 Kids cookery classes

Cookery session with Kiddy Cook

They’ll get the chance to create and sample a host of dishes in themed classes taking part throughout the day on Saturday & Sunday.

Bookings will be taken on the day on a first-come, first-served basis

Cost: Included in your (free!) Westbridge Park entry


11am & 2pm

Create a delicious pizza from scratch and then enjoy eating it! This class is usually a sell-out so we thought we’d run it twice!

Dough Balls


Get hands-on and make delicious dough balls to cook at home and churn your own home-made butter!

More for the kids

Keep little hands busy craft activities on Saturday & Sunday in the Kiddy Cook tent.

Cost: Charge per activity

Face Painting

Let imaginations run wild as kids transform into their favourite animals or characters, thanks to the talents of the Three Fairies face painting team.

Cost: Charge per face painted

Pushchair Park & Ride

Buggies can be a struggle when the festival get busy – so we’ve teamed up with local company Cuddle Me Up Slings allowing you to ditch the buggy and hire a sling to carry little ones safely around the site for just £3 per day. The team will also be offering dedicated baby change and breastfeeding areas.

Cost: £3 per day
