Family Friendly Festival wishlist. Plus win Geronimo family ticket worth £100! (Ended)

As the weather starts to warm up and there are even the occasional hints of blue skies and sunshine, my thoughts start turning to one of my favourite things, the family friendly festival!

These two are festival pros now!

I absolutely love festivals and even more so now that I have children. The idea that children are not welcome at festivals or that festivals are not suitable places for children are totally outdated, in fact, I think they are actually the perfect place to go for a weekend. Obviously you need to choose your festival carefully, some are definitely more geared up to children then others.

Most festivals will have an area dedicated to children, there might also be a quieter family camping field and there are some festivals that are completely dedicated to children. You just need to decide what you want, a weekend at a family friendly festival with music for you where your children will also be happy, or a weekend where it is all about them at a children’s festival, it’s completely up to you!

One festival that falls into the former category is Cornbury. Sadly it’s the last year that this super family friendly festival will be taking place but looking at the line up, they’re looking to go out with a bang with headliners including Bryan Adams, the Kaiser Chiefs and Jools Holland to name but a few! Having worked at Cornbury a few years ago, I have lovely memories of sunshine, beautiful country views, open spaces and fantastic music. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful and there was an incredible safe and friendly vibe all weekend long. The festival will be held on the 7th, 8th and 9th July 2017 at The Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire.

You can see the full line up and book tickets on their website.

A festival that goes full children with bells on, is Geronimo festival held at the breathtakingly beautiful Arley Hall in Cheshire on the 27th, 28th and 29th May 2017.

We’ve not been before, but with a line up that made my children squeal, there are CBeebies presenters galore including Justin Fletcher (Mr Tumble), Cook and Line (Swashbuckle), Andy (Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures), Mr Bloom, Amazing Arabella and many many more, I know we’re going to love it! The theme is knights, princesses and dragons too, which is right up our street and there are some amazing bands booked to give children a taste of many different styles of music.

family friendly festival

There are hundreds of live shows on over the weekend including a circus tent, and a dizzying array of events aimed at children including jousting, archery, donkey rides, theatre shows, arts and crafts, a fire stunt show and music workshops.

It costs £60 pp for weekend camping passes and day passes are also available for varying prices. Tickets are available to buy here and I’m also thrilled to be able to offer you the chance to win a family day pass worth £100.00! Enter the competition below.

    A great opportunity, I never took mine to festivals, but now they don’t want me there they go with their friends! #BigPinkLink

  4. April 3, 2017 / 7:59 am

    That looks awesome! I live on the wrong side of the world! #bigpinklink

  5. April 3, 2017 / 8:04 am

    I WANNA GO! I love a festival and that line up is immense. Kaiser Chiefs are incredible live! #bigpinklink

  6. April 3, 2017 / 8:15 am

    Geronimo looks so so good – it’s quite a trek for us, so I’m thinking this year it’s not for us, but I’m really keen for in a year or so. I think my son would absolutely love camping! #bigpinklink

  7. April 3, 2017 / 8:20 am

    We’ve never been to a family festival- thanks for sharing, I’ll check these out!

  8. April 3, 2017 / 9:31 am

    Nice! One of the first things we did with our baby was take him to a local music festival too. It was great! #bigpinklink

  9. April 3, 2017 / 9:44 am

    What a great festival. I saw Bryan Adams what feels like a million years ago on my first proper date with my now husband!

  10. April 3, 2017 / 12:06 pm

    That looks brilliant! Shame we’re too far away 🙁 Good luck everyone

  11. April 3, 2017 / 1:11 pm

    What a great giveaway! Festivals are on our list of things to save up for, I’d love to take our boys 🙂 #bigpinklink

  12. April 3, 2017 / 2:52 pm

    Wow that does sound super child friendly! I didn’t realise there were ones like this. There’s a local music one but I think my 2 yr old is too young. Maybe when she’s older. #bigpinklink

  13. April 3, 2017 / 5:00 pm

    Oh my god! This looks like so much fun! I wish we had something like this around here. I am in the states so I cannot win the contest, but good luck everyone. #BigPinkLink

  14. April 3, 2017 / 5:30 pm

    We are going here too Louise! It looks amazing! My kids have never been to a festival so I just know they will love it, I’m just hoping they stay close or it’s going to be stressful. I may invest in high vis vests! #bigpinklink

    I am longing to be a festival mom with my kid in Ear protectors sitting in a flower-decked trailer. But while my Significant Other used to enjoy festivals, he does not see the family fun potential. I hope to convert him in a year or two. But it will be a day ticket to Green Man for us and a comfortable night’s sleep in my parents’ spare bed. I can’t face tents and portaloos on my own anymore, let alone with a toddler. #bigpinklink

  16. April 3, 2017 / 7:55 pm

    This looks lovely! Going to look into it, thanks! #bigpinklink

  17. April 3, 2017 / 9:57 pm

    It’s funny, we were just talking about the possibility of a family festival this year! Checking these two out now! #bigpinklink

  18. April 3, 2017 / 10:17 pm

    I’m a festival lover although all the festivals I’ve been to were all in my pre baby days and we’re definitely not child friendly! In the future I’d definitely like to take Rory to a child friendly festival but maybe when he’s a little older #bigpinklink

  19. April 4, 2017 / 1:05 am

    This is great. I remember reading about these last year and being jealous. We have nothing like this that I know about here in the States

  20. April 4, 2017 / 6:57 am

    Hi, I want to go to the Cornbury festival what a great line up. I love Bryan Adams. Oh and thanks for running a great giveaway #bigpinklink

  21. April 4, 2017 / 8:00 am

    Sounds great! I haven’t been to a festival in nearly 10 years, I used to love them and would love to go to a family friendly one! #bigpinklink

  22. April 4, 2017 / 10:14 am

    I used to go to Reading every year without fail. Geronimo looks good for the kids but it was hard for me to scroll past the Kaiser Chiefs and SCOUTING FOR GIRLS! Add in Green day/muse and I think I might cry 😉 #BigPinkLink

  23. April 4, 2017 / 10:24 am

    Geronimo sounds AMAZING! I’m definitely booking tickets next year!! #BigPinkLink

  24. April 4, 2017 / 12:45 pm

    I love the idea of taking my little one to festivals one day! (Although he’s only just coming up to 7 weeks!)
    It must be an amazing way to meet new people too when you take kids with you! x

  25. April 4, 2017 / 1:46 pm

    It looks like so much fun! We’ve never been to a family festival but I used to like them when I was younger. We’ll have to give it a go one day. Thanks for the info!

  26. April 4, 2017 / 3:11 pm

    I genuinely had no idea that family-friendly festivals existed (I know, I don’t know where I’ve been either!?). This is great! #BigPinkLink

  27. April 4, 2017 / 6:31 pm

    These both look incredible. I would never have considered a festival being aimed at families but these both sound perfect. I’ll keep my fingers crossed! Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink x

  28. April 4, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    Oooh this sure looks like a good one! My kids would be grooving to the music, but both love a bit of Swashbuckle! #bigpinklink

  29. April 5, 2017 / 4:49 am

    I love love Bryan Adams. =) We have not been to a festival in such a long long time. Thanks so much for hosting! #BigPinkLink

  30. April 5, 2017 / 9:51 am

    This sounds a brilliant festival and i’d love to go! best way for us parents to still get to see good artists and know our kids are safe and having fun! #bigpinklink

  31. April 5, 2017 / 2:39 pm

    Wow this sounds like a fantastic festival – been a long time since I last went to a festival xx #bigpinklink

  32. April 5, 2017 / 10:41 pm

    I know Mr A would love to see the Keiser Chiefs again and I am a bit partial to a bit of Bryan Adams #bigpinklink

  33. April 6, 2017 / 3:37 am

    A bit to far of a trip to me but best of luck to the winners. Sounds like a fabulous time!

  34. April 6, 2017 / 2:14 pm

    Peachy loves music and I bet she would enjoy a festival. But we’re in Canada so these particular festivals are not in our immediate future. #bigpinklink

  35. April 7, 2017 / 2:01 am

    A great comp, we like a festival or two 😉 x

  36. April 9, 2017 / 6:56 am

    I really want to go to both of these especially the the one with Bryan Adams, what a legend! You truly rock at camping, and it’s still something we need to get under our belt with our little one. Thanks for hosting hun. Claire x #bigpinklink

    Wow amazing prize! I would love to take my kids to their first festival this year.

    A great prize. I have heard really good things about this festival and would love to go, but money or lack of it means I cannot afford for the whole family to go, so fingers crossed x
