Eden Festival will be transporting you back in time, into a land of dragons and dreams, with this years fancy dress theme Myth’s and Legends.  The Kidz Arena will take you to middle earth and beyond, to a world full of serpents, dragons, elves and fairies.


The area will be awash with colour, beautiful giant flora, and other mythical creatures.  Most of the craft workshops will follow the same theme and children will be able to make their own elfish flags, creature masks, carnival birds and time travelling backpacks, culminating in a festival parade across the site on Sunday afternoon.


There’s so many workshops to keep them occupied with the craft marquee, forest skills tipi, little ones dome, arts yurt, and a story telling and a puppetry marquee. If that wasn’t enough to keep them entertained they can learn new skills such as circus tricks, carpentry, stone masonry, ironmongery and more. Plus they can take part in the dance offs, the annual paint fight, be motivated by Mr Motivator, and dazzled by the fire show and firework display.


Producing the Kidz Arena is Maggie March ‘We hope to inspire new generations by providing a range of workshops and entertainment whilst being as sustainable as possible and promoting environmentally friendly arts and crafts in a natural setting, at no extra charge to the parents. They can feel assured as the area is managed by a dedicated team of staff, performers and volunteers all working together to create a happy environment.”
