As Summer approaches let us tell you about our 5 favourite child friendly summer festivals for 2017! Rain or shine we love visiting festivals and we are often booked to Face Paint and Entertain at them too! Our entertainers are always chomping at the bit to get involved! There are so many interesting activities to get involved in from circus skills workshops, to pirate treasure hunts and nature walks to cuddles with farm yard animals!
It is a chance for our entertainers to really let their creativity shine through and most importantly have fun with the children, making it ever more memorable for all involved.
Here is a festival for every month of spring and summer in 2017!
We hope to see you there! :)
