The Children’s Area at Beautiful Days is co-ordinated by Majical Youth Theatre. There are loads of activities, hands-on workshops and entertainment all weekend long for children of all ages.
There are also crafts, theatre, dressing-up, circus, rides, story-telling, workshops, comedy, face painting and more. The main children’s area is in the middle of the festival site but there are also story-telling and play areas in the campsites.
REDWOODS CAMPING is to be designated specifically ‘family camping’ in 2011. Redwoods is the first camping field on the right as you come over the bridge out of the arenas and is the one with the storytelling area under the circle of redwood trees.
