Thanks Hugh for posting and emailing this round, I have never been before but highly recommend. Have just spent 2.5 very happy hours there with my 2 kids (3 and 6y), sister and niece (5y). The kids made pots using a wheel, saw a creepy crawlie show ona barge, slid down a huge inflatable slide and enjoyed an outdoor band. we had a great time. And we only saw a small part of the festival! Good mix of free and pay for stuff. Could have stayed all day is sis and family didn't have to get to paddington for a train.....
We will look out for it next year!
