1/10 Geronimo, Hertfordshire, 30 June-1 July

Widely known as ‘Glastonbury for kids’, Geronimo goes all out to create a fairytale existence for the three days of its festival. Catering solely to children and their families, visitors to Geronimo can be sure of a safe and welcoming atmosphere for little ones jam-packed full of fun and creativity. On the main stage this year will be TV favourites such as Mr. Bloom, Justin Fletcher of Mr. Tumble fame and Cook and Line among others.

Activities at the festival include circus workshops, getting stuck into carnival acts, messy church, stage coach, puppetry and more. When your little ones need to burn off steam take them to make their very own adventure playground with Woodland Tribe, give them a bouncing good time on the squashy obstacle course, and even go caving.

All activities and shows are included in your ticket price, making for a family festival that’s fantastic value. A wide range of food vendors including vegan and vegetarian options are on site and they all serve child-sized portions.

 One-day tickets cost £25 and two-day tickets cost £45 (under-2s are free).
