Kids Kingdom

A WORLD OF WONDER AWAITS FOR THE LITTLE ONES


 

Our wonderful Kids Kingdom features plenty of absorbing and exhilarating activities for the little folk at Farmfest. From circus tricks to magic shows, craft making to puppet sing-alongs, there’s plenty to keep you all entertained – both kids and adults alike – and with animals at the heart of this year’s theme you really can let things get a little wild. Grrrr!

 

 

DRAGONBIRD THEATRE

 

Get ready to play! DragonBird Theatre is an innovative and popular Bristol-based early years theatre company. Ideal for children aged 0-5 alongside their grown-ups, the shows will be enjoyed by all ages. Starting with a short performance of classic favourite, The Elephant’s Child, by Rudyard Kipling, each session lasts approximately 45 minutes and includes a facilitated workshop where everyone gets to play and explore adventures based on the show. Expect giant nets, silky rivers, singing with gusto and, finally, going to sleep!

PUPPET SINGALONG


 

Come and join Matt & Lou and their puppets for some toe-tapping, bottom-wiggling, crowd-pleasing singalongs! From Banana Dance to Chocolate rolls, these songs both old and new are guaranteed to get the whole family grooving. Boogie with Mr OoOo the monkey, rock & roll with Elvis, jig with Enoch the pirate and gambol with Morgan the sheep, plus many more! And if your little ones like bubbles, then they’ll simply love Puppet Singalong!

HOWES THAT ENTERTAINMENT

 
Jungle Boogie
 

A high-energy and imaginative dance class for children with the ever-exuberant Robyn Howe. Culminating in a performance for the parents of I Wanna Be Like You from The Jungle Book, this is not to be missed!

 

 

CHILDREN’S YOGA with MAHA DEVI YOGA CENTRE


 

It wouldn’t be fair for the adults to have all the fun, so this year we’re running kids’ yoga classes in the Kids’ Kingdom, and adults are strictly not allowed. (Well, maybe we’ll let you watch from the sidelines!)
 
The Maha Devi Yoga Centre is a leader in both therapeutic and fun yoga sessions for children and young adults. Suitable for all the festival’s little people, the classes offer a wonderful way to increase their co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies, helping them relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun and creative environment.

MALCOLM THE MAGICIAN


 

Malcolm is one of the best children’s entertainers on the circuit, providing quality entertainment for well over twenty years now. This year at Farmfest he’ll be performing some eye-popping walkabout close-up magic that will amaze the children – and the mums and dads! The 45-minute show is packed with slapstick, fun and laughter, the making of wonderful balloon animals, and finishes with an incredible Magic bonanza.
 
Suitable for all ages including parents, the show requires lots of participation, and the help of several Magician’s Assistants.
