With the 3foot People Festival 2020 being cancelled, the team couldn’t bear to stay away for a whole year. So, they teamed up with   Dr Gummer’s Good Play Guide and the Play At Home Fest to host the 3foot Pre-Schooler Stage.

Over the late May Bank Holiday, the virtual offering brought a range of performances and activities for  little festival goers to enjoy, bringing some unique 3foot festival magic to their stay at home adventures.

Even better news and by popular demand Play At Home Fest returns on Saturday 29 August bringing more festival fun to you right at home. 3foot will be hosting the stage once again and you can find out everything you need to know at Play at Home Festival.
