Plan Your Day: Families with Teenagers

Whether they like to wander on their own or stick around the parentals, this itinerary should give your teenagers (and you) a few good ideas to keep well fed and entertained throughout the day. 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.
