Here's where we'll be...

CarFest – as the name suggests, has lots of car related entertainment which is perfect for kids who love transport. There is plenty to do for adults too – music, food and even a relaxation area where you can get a bit of well-deserved pampering after a day of watching Dick & Dom. Chilled in a field has more of a party vibe, described as being for “grown up party people and their kids”. Meanwhile Starry Skies wants us all to get back to nature and enjoy being outside.

What they all have in common is that they are totally geared up for families with kids of all ages; safe, all the facilities you could need for the kids, and loads of fun that appeals to all ages.
