From its hub just off the main area, the kid’s zone is close to the Purity Village Stage and perfectly positioned for parents and children to have fun together, safely tucked in an area of the site, but close enough to the action for it to be a real part of the event. We also have our Wee Folkies area which has a baby changing and feeding area, as well as a whole programme of activities for the under fives.
After a year that many of us would like to forget Pandemonium! is back with a programme to bring joy, excitement and glitter (eco of course) to support our children’s wellbeing.
We won’t be holding our legendary lantern procession this year, instead we are very excited to welcome The Rig to Pandemonium! for the first time. The Rig is an interactive installation combining percussion, musical exploration, creativity and adventure. Designed by professional musicians and artists, The Rig is a unique musical soundscape with an exciting visual impact aimed at kids from 1 to 100 years old!!
Highly Sprung are coming back with a brand-new walk-about adventure with magical objects that all have a story to tell and on Saturday Kabantu are performing a special Round-the-World concert for the children with a huge range of instruments. If that isn’t enough Sal Tonge is bringing her silent disco, complete with serious dance moves, to get you up and active.
Pandemonium! will be a little different this year, we’re taking the fun into the great outdoors for lots of lovely fresh air! Instead of our usual Pandemonium tent we will have an outdoor family village complete with a range of child-led drop-in activities, from den making, to treasure hunts, to ignite the kid’s creative spirit. Activities will be run in family groups this year to keep you all as safe a possible, but we promise this won’t get in the way of fun and excitement. Panic Circus are back with us too, bringing their exciting circus skills and huge bubbles to the Pandemonium! village.
And the youngest festivalgoers aren’t left out, we have a brand new Wee Folkies bell tent to get comfy in, and enjoy sensory activities. Parents are also welcomed to feed their babies here, or anywhere they are comfortable, and even lie them down for a nap.
