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.

Storytelling with Chris Park 

Chris Park lives in a luxurious hedge on the Oxon/Wilts border with his irascible gypsy wife and a horde of bewitching children. Surrounded by beehives, cow pats and sweet organic fields, he keeps the life in himself and his loved ones through the perpetuation of fine folk tales. 

He is a purveyor of honeyed words, a seeker of the world's most ancient lies, truths and everything in between. You might call him a mellifluous fabulist, an erudite druid or a cunning linguist... put simply he's just a decent fella, and a darn good storyteller. 

Tales for young and old, the innocent and the experienced, tailored to your needs and requirements, garnished with delicious music, in a tipi, between tarot readings.
