Kids' Yoga with Alessia


"Welcome to my Family Yoga Sessions, these are not your regular yoga classes so be prepared to move, make noises, get to the floor, explore what our bodies can do through yoga poses, experiment with partner play and most of all have tons of fun with your little ones. We will finish our session with a well deserved guided relaxation. The sessions are suitable for children aged 3 to 8 yrs old but toddlers and older children are always welcome to come and play a game of yoga."

The Jellybabies

The Jellybabies are the most delicious of bands, they perform only songs that have appeared in children's films. So you may get songs from Shrek's Karaoke party, Ghostbusters, or from The Minions films. DO NOT GET US WRONG we are not a kids' band, but what we are is a rock band that parents will love, and kids will know the songs.

There is nothing worse than being a parent at a festival and having to sit through many performances of the Wheels on the Bus, and puppet shows aimed at 3 year olds, as good as they are we all need more rock in our lives!  So we provide pure rock for everyone, and its a family friendly gig that everyone can enjoy.

Sat & Sun: 4pm in the Music & Dance Tent
