Children's Activities

As a family-friendly festival we have made sure that there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. On The Lawn you will find a range of activities suitable for all ages including a bouncy castle, a Bubble Show and arts & crafts. Below is just a handful of the amazing activities that we have to offer!

To ensure that everyone has fun we ask for children to be supervised at all times. When you arrive at the festival please point out the Information Tent (in the main festival field) for children to go to in the unlikely case they become separated from their grown-ups. As always, anyone in a 'Crew' or 'Safety' T-shirt will also be available to help. 

jamie jigsaw

DorsetFest would not be the same without the wonderful Jamie Jigsaw. With over 15 years of experience, more than 200 five-star reviews and an amazing reputation across Dorset, there is no one better for the job. As always there will be a range of shows and workshops suitable for all ages.

We are just confirming the timetable of events and will update these shortly.

the bubble man

Making his DorsetFest debut in 2023, the Bubble Man was an absolute hit! This year you can expect to see the most enormous and amazing bubbles you have ever seen.  Armed with bubble tri strings, garlands and bubble wands, the air will be filled with more bubbles than  you can imagine. 

If this wasn't enough, there will also be an outdoor Bubble Craft workshop where the children will learn to make their very own bubble craft display. Each child will have their very own workstation to become a bubble-master!

face painting

Would it really be a family festival without the opportunity to get matching face-paints? We will have some wonderful and friendly artists ready to make the children (and their grownups) look fantastic. 

bush craft

A new and very exciting addition to DorsetFest, Bush Craft will bring something a little different. 

Watch this space - we don't want to give too much away at once.

These are just a selection of the activities for children and are subject to change.
