Young children at festival

Latitude Festival is an incredibly friendly destination for families! In fact, it was recognised as one of the friendliest festivals for families by Mumsnet and The Telegraph.

Even the youngest guests will find a wide range of activities to enjoy in the Kids Area. They can enjoy adventurous experiences such as puppetry, drama classes, pond dipping, astronomy, and even pizza making!

If you have very young children, it may be worth considering bringing a trolly/wagon to cart them around the festival in. Or if you need to save space in your car, you can pre-book a trolley rental from Mr. Trolley.

Please note that while some trolleys may be available on the day, there is a risk of them running out, so it’s best to book in advance. Keep in mind that a cash deposit is required for the rental.

For older children aged 12 and up who want to explore something a bit cooler, the Inbetweener’s Area is hidden away in the woods. Teens will love the exciting assault courses featuring nets and zip wires high up in the trees, where they can learn wildlife survival skills.

Plus, they can join in music, media, and technology workshops. With so much to offer, Latitude Festival 2024 is the perfect family-friendly destination for a fun and memorable experience!
