Tickets can only be booked through this website. All tickets are FREE, but we welcome any donation you feel able to make to support future festivals. You can do this at the checkout stage.

Tickets will also be available on the day, but we do encourage you to book in advance as certain sessions are sure to be popular (especially workshops).

To get tickets, click on the event you wish to attend and add the number of tickets you require to the basket. For all events except workshops, please select the total number in your party (children and adults). For workshops, please just order tickets for the children attending.

Once you have added all the tickets you require, proceed to the checkout where you will be asked for your name, address and email. That’s it! Your tickets will be emailed to you. Please check your spam in case they end up there. Contact us if you don’t receive your ticket email within 48 hours.

Please use the schedules for Saturday and Sunday to plan your day. Age categories for all the events are approximate only. Make sure you give yourselves time to explore the drop-in activities, enjoy refreshments and browse the festival bookshop.

Please book thoughtfully – we want as many children as possible to enjoy the fun of the festival. Please do not book more sessions than you can realistically attend, and if your plans change let us know so we can offer your tickets to others.
