3foot People Festival

The 3foot People Festival brings unique festival fun exclusively for pre-schoolers (0 to 5 years) to the beautiful grounds of Chelmsford’s Hylands Park each year.

It’s the UK's largest outdoor festival for little ones. We welcome over 14,000 festival goers for a day filled with excitement, with wonder hidden around every corner, ready to inspire and entertain.

3foot encourages you to explore the intimate village of tents, tepees and areas hidden among the trees. Allowing you to discover activities, interactive play, performances and shows, all within dedicated zones:

  • Get Sporty
  • Craft, Play, Mess, Repeat
  • Happily Ever After (theatre and storytelling)
  • Music and Movement
  • Go Wild 

All activities and shows are included within 3foot’s ticket price and there are no hidden extras (even the face painting is included).

The 2019 event fully sold out and ran from Tuesday 2 to Thursday 4 July. It was kindly sponsored by Fundamentally Children, Seymour House Day Nurseries and Essex and Suffolk Water.

A big thank you to all our festival goers, content providers, suppliers and sponsors for making 3foot 2019 so amazing.

3foot HQ will be announcing next year’s dates in the coming months. To keep up-to-date with all the latest information be sure to:
