Blissfields has declared its most adventure-packed year for kids with Katy Ashworth from CBeebies, star of hit show 'I Can Cook' singing songs and storytelling, Family Arts And Crafts, Juggling and Circus Workshops, Puppet Shows, Hula-Hooping, Magicians and book reading with talented children's author and illustrator Elissa Elwick.

Other fun activities across the weekend include face painting, lantern making, story telling, open mic and campfire jamming, 'It's A Knockout', sculpture building, drumming, knitting, fire building classes, 'Wake Up Shake Up' and green crafts.

As always, Blissfields has themed this year’s event and is encouraging attendees to lose themselves in fancy dress of the most absurd festival garb. To celebrate the transportation of the festival to its new "home-world", the theme for the weekend will be a Sci-Fi-tastic - "OUT OF THIS WORLD".
