Junior's guide to the best family festivals ever checks out the Off The Tracks festival

 1 of 2 

Off The Tracks festival is at Donington Park Farmhouse, Castle Donington, Derbyshire 

Capacity 1,500

What’s the vibe Small is beautiful is the mantra of this intimate twice-yearly affair. Musical interludes Headliners for the spring festival include The Christians and Los Pacominos featuring Paul Young. There’s also an expansive musical offering that blends world, roots, folk, dance, trance and fusion set around three stages in and around the pretty courtyard of the Donington Park Farmhouse.

For the kids A good mix of arts, crafts, activities and entertainment, plus circus workshops and funky light shows; don’t forget to pack jazzy outfits for the fancy-dress night too. Nice flat terrain with no steep hills also makes it buggy-friendly.

Added extras Healing workshops in The Orchard offer enticing therapies such as meditation, and chanting and voice work. 

Where to stay As the venue is ordinarily a camping and caravan site, the facilities are great so pitch your own. For the glamping option, stay in a beautiful, pre-erected nomadic tent at Camel Camp in an exclusive area of the campsite. £300 per tent (sleeps four), plus entry

What does it cost Adult weekend tickets with camping cost £65; 12–16s, £32.50; under-12s are free.

Extend your stay The stunning five-star Stapleford Park country house hotel is less than 30 miles away from the festival site, and is family-friendly. Activities available include falconry and horse riding, as well as outdoor games like croquet. The spa will also provide parental pampering after the rigours of festival life; babysitting is available. Prices from £160 B&B per night. Tel: 01572 787000.
