Eventuality is once again proud to be presenting the Glastonbury Festival Kidz field. The beauty of Glastonbury is its commitment to the future. Under fourteens are admitted free and, unlike any other event, there is a whole field packed full of fun. This is probably the largest free children's festival in the universe.
The Kidz Field is open from 9.00am to 7.00pm every day with three acres of fun and continuous entertainment. We provide a safe environment where families can relax and enjoy themselves together. Please note however that there are no crèche facilities in the field and parents are expected to take responsibility for their kids.
Over the years many children have been born at the festival, and some of them will be completing the cycle by working with us this year. I feel this in itself is a fitting tribute to Jean Eavis.
