Plan Your Day: Families with Primary Age Kids

If your children are between 6-11 years old, you might find this helpful when planning your days out at the festival. Please note that the joust times have been included so you can add one in at whichever time suits you and your family – you don’t have to go to all four each day!  There are many, many more displays, workshops and shows all around the festival site, please refer to the main programme for more information and schedules.
