Elderflower Fields 2019
24 - 27th May 2019
Danehill, Uckfield, TN22 3HW
At Elderflower Fields enjoy an eclectic mix of music over the weekend and it was wonderful to see the children enjoy the performances as much as we did. The highlight was seeing Ben Ottewell on the Woodland Stage.
 
Wychwood Festival 2019
31st May – 2 June 2019
46 Market Square, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX28 6AL
With its laid back and family friendly atmosphere, everywhere you look there are kids running around, chasing bubbles, practising circus skills and dancing to the live music.  A perfect festival to enjoy live music and chill with friends.  Consistently nominated as the “Best Family Festival” in the UK Festival Awards. This year will be the 15th Wychwood Festival and the organisers had clearly gone out of their way to make sure it was the best year yet for kids and families.


Timber Festival 2019
5th – 7th July 2019
Rawdon Road, Moira, Swadlincote, DE12 6DQ
If you’re looking for a festival with a very relaxed vibe, a festival that truly is family friendly and one where you will feel instantly relaxed then Timber is your festival. If you’re looking for Mr Tumble, neon lights and famous bands then you’ll need to head elsewhere.
 
Latitude 2019
18th - 21st July 2019
Henham Park Estate, Beccles, Suffolk, NR34 8AN
With activities and entertainment for kids, teens and families now spread across three exciting areas, it’s no wonder Latitude has previously won Best Family Festival and ‘Best Family Day Out’. It’s definitely a top family-friendly festival! A proper pop festival in the beautiful grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.  Arranged around the Latitude Lake is a stunning Kids Area, where children are entertained with fire shows, pizza-making, traditional woodland crafts and a host of exciting science experiments. There is also an Inbetweeners’ Teen Area. Here, teenagers can take part in music, media, fashion and technology workshops, or learn wildlife survival skills.
