The-Jelly-Babies.jpgThe 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.




A fantastic opportunity to experience how Pilates improves strength and flexibility with attention to good form and technique.  This free 30 minutes workshop will introduce some basic Pilates exercises with some optional modifications.  Suitable for all ages and abilities - please let Fiona know if you have any injuries.

Urban Dance Workshop with Morilie Taiwo 

"You will feel amazing after, believe me!" That seemed to be the consensus as I asked participants about Urban Dance Workshop. So I tried it out for myself. Well...well, I am struggling to speak. Yes, yes and YES! They certainly weren't wrong, I feel absolutely AMAZING!... But more. I feel like a light I didn't even know existed has been switched on. My face wears a permanent smile and my body can't contain itself but to express with some vigour this newly found illumination.  Absolutely brilliant."
