The festival is also home to the biggest straw bears in the country, hopefully with some new additions and even see the return of the showers (not the rain or a band!).
There's lots of things for kids free including the arts and crafts workshop, childrens entertainer, zumba, tennis coaching and competitions. At a small cost there are age ranging bouncy castles, slides and rides, a climbing wall and waterballs along with the clay modelling, hair braiding, crazy golf, a carousel, henna tattoos and face painting.
Dogs are allowed as long as they are well behaved and are monitored closely by their owners.
More information will be here when available.
