The Children's Festival
Some festivals think of Children as an afterthought.....at Towersey we give them just as much thought as you big people. We spend the whole year putting a wall-to-wall programme together that will have children begging to come back year after year. We know this because it already happens!
A huge programme for children and family is planned for 2013 at Towersey with the return of the Rainbow marquee (new in 2012) providing drop in crafts, entertainment and special events throughout the weekend. As well as the Rainbow, Towersey Children’s Festival has four other dedicated children’s marquees, Red Dragon, Green Man, Blue Sky and Yellow Sun all providing plenty of opportunities for youngsters to have fun, make things, dance, sing play music, learn something new or improve a skill already learnt, as well as great opportunities to work with others as part of a team.
We said there would be more to come and the list gets ever longer to provide a fantastic weekend of fun and activity for children of all ages.
We are delighted to report that we have probably the best ever team of tutors for the Towzer! Workshop Band in 2013. Bring your instruments along and join our great team of tutors and be part of the amazing Towzer! Ceilidh Band for the Grand Family Ceilidh on Monday afternoon. Artists and activities added recently include:
Is it a bird is it a plane? Who knows what you will make in Louise Block’s pottery workshops!
