We've got kids. We know what it's like.
So just for you we have FREE activities for children in VW Action's 'Children's VWorld'.
This is NOT a creche - YOU are responsible for your children but...
We have laid on colouring sheets and felt-tip pens... Kids videos... and some other stuff...
NAN IN A VAN Penny and her helpers will be on hand to provide FREE FACEPAINTING and art projects, including puppet-making for all children.
Just find the Children's VWorld area (near the Information Centre, check programme map for details) and set them to play. Please be aware painting can get messy - don’t let your kids take part in their Sunday best clothes. Also check out the FREE Circus Workshops and Action Wheels.
The next generation of Festival fun. FREE all day family entertainment. Try your hand at juggling, your feet at unicycling or even your nerves on the tight-wire.
Courtesy of VW Action and completely FREE to you - The Workshop Company will be on site for two full days - circus skills training for everyone, all ages and abilities from beginners to advanced... come and have a go!
Workshops are for complete beginners, so you won't be embarrassed. It's all part of the fun.
Action Wheels is a safe, friendly and exciting “Have-A-Go” two wheeled feature aimed at children aged 2 and upwards and of all abilities on two wheels.
Courtesy of VW Action and completely FREE to you - Action Wheels supply a selection of bikes and safety gear that is free to use for all ages and abilities. Two different courses will be set up. One for smaller children and one for older children and adults.
The Fun Fair and associated attractions are NOT free. Prices for different rides vary. Fun for kids of ALL ages.
We will be showing the classic Disney film 'The Love Bug' on the big screen in the Main Marquee at 6.00pm on Saturday evening - for kids of ALL ages.
In 2008 we introduced two new elements for children attending the show, the Kids Show & Shine, and the Bike Show & Shine. Strictly speaking the bike event is not restricted to just children (separate trophies for under-16s and over-16s) - so, open to ALL ages and FREE to enter.
"Thank you. As a mum of four it was great to have 'free' stuff for the kids to do, it made a huge difference actually being able to say 'yes you can have your face painted'. The whole event was superb."
