WelshFest has made special arrangements to make the festival weekend very appealing to families with  children by providing an area away from the Main Stage and Bars.  The family area sits higher up in a lovely spot overlooking the festival on one side and the city of Cardiff on the other.  You’ll  be able to soak up the festival atmosphere while still keeping the children happy with an array of activities, many of which are free for to take part. 

 

Food & Drink

There is a  food area with seating and several stalls offering some delicious meal options and deserts including Crepes,  Ice cream and several others.  Of course we’ve included a Bar in the Family Area too so mum’s and dads won’t have to walk far to get a drink!!   

 

Children’s Activities

Below we’ve listed our main activities for children.  As well as these there will be Face Painting, Balloons, Glitter, Hair Braiding, Games, Arts & Crafts.  WelshFest promises fun  for all age groups making it a great day out or weekend away.

Interactive Mini Circus

‘Jitter Bugs’ Circus Skills’  will be at WelshFest Saturday and Sunday all day providing Entertainment by way of Shows and Activities to get involved with.  Best of all it’s free to get involved.  Check out their program when you arrive and treat your young ones to some fun with the Jitter Bugs friendly team.

Other Information

What to bring

Some suggestions of what not to forget when camping with kids…

Sunscreen, waterproofs, wellies, sunhat, warm blankets – it will probably get cold at night, waterproof picnic rug, transportation – a buggy ( with a raincover ) or sling, first aid kit, wipes and more wipes, nappies, anti-bacterial hand gel, bucket/travel potty – for midnight wees, torch, fancy dress.

Lost children

All children will be given a wristband on entry to the festival, with a space for a parent’s mobile telephone number. Please keep your phone with you. You can charge it up at the information tent.

We suggest that families with older children make clear plans as a family when they arrive at the festival, with an agreed meeting place if you lose each other. If your children cannot find you, show them what our festival stewards look like so that they know who to approach.

Lost children will be cared for by us while they wait for you at the lost child point.

Give your children the same advice you would if you were anywhere else: don’t go off with strangers or anyone without telling you first.
