Eden Festival's fancy dress theme is 'Intergalactic' this year. The Children's Arena theme is Under the Sea
The Under The Sea themed children’s arena, they will be taking kids under the sea to the land of make believe, swimming and surfing with sea creatures, sailing with pirates and flying with gulls.
Eden will have workshops for children to make pirate flags, fish masks, scuba packs and much more. The Forest Skills team will be leading woodland crafts and bushcraft skills, including campfire cooking and herb walks, and making jewellry, nature art and willow crafts.
The Toddlers Dome is also returning with books, toys and dressing up and on Saturday kids can seek out clues for the lost treasure and on Sunday the kids will claim the festival site as their own, when they make some noise on the colourful parade.
The Rheged Market will be the festival's bazaar with a multitude of stalls. Food and drink will also be situated here.
Carbon emissions from the festival will be calculated by the local Crichton Carbon Centre after the festival. The carbon will be compensated locally within Galloway with large tree plantations of a broadleaf or fruit nature. Kids from local schools will be involved in the project, which will be on-going as the trees grow and are cared for.
The Eden Festival is now organised by Galloway Arts Community Interest company, a non profit organisation run by members of the local community.
More information will be here when available.
