Woo Fest Kids

Our ethos

Making Woo Fest a great experience for the whole family is one of our main objectives and part of this is making sure kids have plenty to do.

Entry and camping is free for children and we always have activities that the kids can get involved in (from musical workshops to forest school to craft sessions). Most of these are also free and we are lucky to be supported by the fabulous Jungle Jiggle

More importantly, Woo Fest is a safe environment for children, so the whole family can relax and enjoy the music.

Our regular Woo Fest kids also want to raise money for St Richard's Hospice so in Feb 2019 completed a 5 mile walk across the malvern hills raising £1,044.82 - great work
