Playtopia

Come on in and celebrate your own world of play. Built by dinosaurs and inhabited by all sorts of wonderful creatures.  There’s a huge amount of fun, creativity and adventures to be had from 9-5 Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We are developing Playtopia’s own take on a sort of Fun House – where you’ll be building and changing it through out the festival.

Back again will be the totally awesome Super Pirates, as gang of play monsters set to lead you into messy, bouncy bonanza. Of course, it wouldn’t be Playtopia without Big Top Mania tent. Inside you’ll find a flabbergasting line up of entertainment for you including The Flying Seagulls, a world class circus show and the Big Bear’s Disco.

We’ve got such a massive mammoth sized mountain of arty, creative stuff that there isn’t room to list it all here. Safe to say our Arty Farty and Art 2 D 2 tents will be rammed with amazing workshops all day long.

Chango Music will be back once again for a packed programme of music making.  They’ll have Drumming Rebellion, Brazilian Capoeira, singing, recycled instrument making, ukulele workshops and you’ll be able join them in dancing like life-as-we-know-it depended on it!

Toddlers can go wild too and toddle on over to the Toddle Inn.  Free play on a giant scale, come and join in with the dancing, singing, making, painting and giant soft play.

Hidden deep in the woods on the other side of the site from the main kids field we have the mighty Woodland Tribe. You’ll find nets high in the trees, camp fires, rope swings, be able to build you own dens and play ground, spin around on the wild swing, make some natural art, and there’s the speedy ZIP line!

So come and check out the blackboards outside each tent for the times of activities, or just get involved with a list of fun things so long it can’t even be written down. Don’t forget to look out for the parachute games, giant bubbles, a real robot and remember… to quote Plato “You can discover more in an hour of play than a year of study.”
