Why Go?

The five-day annual music and arts festival offers epic inspiration for kids and adults alike with their quirky line-up and its munchkin-friendly activities. There’s comedy, music, spoken word, theatre and a host of workshops to choose from while soaking in the summer sun in the heart of Cranborne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With five stages and over 80 acts, the eclectic music line-up includes names like British pianist/vocalist Jamie Callum, Dutch songstress Caro Emerald and the old timers The Stranglers. Comedians Mark Steel, Paul Foot and the intriguingly named The Boy with Tape on his Face keep the laughs coming.

For the little Larmers, Mr Bloom, CBeebies’s resident gardener, headlines the festival. From the charming puppet theatre Meadow to the silliness of Mr Pineapple Head, the imps can burn off all that extra energy. If that doesn’t work, the Bubble Boogie Disco should do the trick!
