The children activity hub, The Kaleidoscope Tent returns filled to the brim with creative and fun activities for kids, big and small like drama, arts and magic. The tent offers the ideal break away for young festivalgoers to sample a range of arty and musical activities, as well as giant games and beanbags. Locally based Apollo Arts will be providing lessons in Drama, Singing, Dancing, Festival Arts and T-Shirt Making; where participants get their own free Stockton Weekender T-shirt to design and take home with them. The tent will also host a Drumming workshop, a Photomontage workshop with Peg Powler Gallery and some hula-hooping fun too! A family tent wouldn't be complete without the chance to turn yourself into a tiger, butterfly or a Dalmatian! Our face painters will be around during tent opening times for all your facial design needs. All of this activity is free of charge.
A psychedelic inspired London Cab, that doubles as a Photo Booth will be on site with flowers adorning the roof, AstroTurf grass on the floor, and props and fancy dress on hand to offer festival goers, a free unique keepsake from the event.
