What’s the vibe A boutique, weekend-long festival of creativity for families. 

Musical interludes There’s music, dance and street theatre, plus the chance for your family to take part in the inaugural performance of the Just So Festival choir or join in with the participatory opera of The Emperor’s New Clothes. 

For the kids Theatre and puppetry, trails through the woods to find the fairy queen, a jolly Famous Five picnic and donkey rides at the beach. There’s also the chance to meet children’s authors, including David Lucas, or dance in the woods to Polly and the Billets Doux.

Added extras Set amid 65 acres of ancient English woodland in Staffordshire, festival families can immerse themselves in music, art, cinema and dance in the beautiful natural landscape full of enticing discoveries. Around every corner, you might find an amazing light installation, some acoustic jazz or meet a Gruffalo. 

Where to stay Weekend tickets include three nights’ camping, either in intimate woodland glades or in adjacent fields overlooking the gorgeous moorlands.

What does it cost £80 for adults; £35 for children; under-threes free.

Extend your stay Stay at Rowan House, a four-star holiday cottage in the heart of the Staffordshire Peak District in the village of Alton (and yes, if your children want still more fun take a day out at Alton Towers). From £264 for three nights.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you are able to eliminate me from that service? Thanks! Buy cheap Autocad Mechanical 2019 software

Nice post. I find out some thing tougher on different blogs everyday. Most commonly it is stimulating to study content from other writers and employ something from their site. I’d choose to apply certain together with the content in this little weblog no matter whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thank you for sharing. Sirl Josephine
