About the festival

Families have fun in the sun at the 3foot People Festival

The 3foot People Festival is the UK's largest outdoor festival exclusively for pre-schoolers and will be back next summer for a wonderful celebration! We'll announce the 2021 dates later this year.

3foot allows you and your little festival goer to discover the array of wonder and excitement hidden around every corner, creating memories as you go. You can explore the intimate village of tents, tepees and secluded areas amongst the trees. You’ll discover activities, interactive play, performances and shows in 3foot’s dedicated zones:

  • Craft, play mess, repeat
  • Get sporty
  • Go wild
  • Happily ever after (theatre and storytelling)
  • Music and movement
  • Grub's up (food stalls)
  • Market place

Outside the zones you’ll find even more excitement, including interactive areas, chill out areas, face painting, inflatable fun, the giant sandpit and even more surprises.

Once again, we’re pleased to announce all these are included within your ticket price. There are no hidden sneaky extras on site and even the face painting is free. You’ll just need money for grub and treats from the carefully selected food and trader stands.
