Festival Entertainment

Seaside Family Zone

Life’s a Beach this year when families can take a trip to the seaside in our family zone. The team at Libraries and museums are putting on their sunnies and digging out their buckets and spades for four days of fun and games.  

All located next to the Town Hall in our open sided marquee (so if it rains you won’t get wet!) there’s loads for everyone to do, including:

Hourly Victorian strongman beach show


Punch and Judy shows

Toddler area

Space hopper track

Hook a duck

Selfie station – just like the ones you see at the seaside

Glitter face paint

Arts and crafts station – Make a seaside craft to take home

Magic Shows:

Prepare to be amazed by Magician and Illusionist Mark Daniels.  Mark’s shows are always a hit with children and families when he joins us at our events.  With daily shows over the festival weekend there’s plenty of opportunity to catch his act.

Street performers:

Keep your eyes peeled over the festival weekend for some fun and games with our fantastic street performers.  They’ll be popping up all over the festival site (including in the park) so expect some mayhem and madness whenever they appear!

Streetwise Soccer:

PANNA FOOTBALL CAGE – are you the next Nat Lofthouse or Raheem Sterling?

Then why not show us your footballing tekkers in this ultimate test of skill?  The aim of the game is to out-skill your opponent with goals and nutmegs (Panna means ‘nutmeg’ in the UK), so come and have a go if you think you’re skilled enough!
