Family & Children’s Events – 2013
We have put together a fun filled family weekend guaranteed to keep the little ones amused, with the usual mixture of entertainment and activities.
Festival regular Jan Edgecombe will once again be on hand throughout the weekend, inviting one and all to indulge their artistic flair by decorating her blackboard van, organising games, face painting and dressing up fun, prior to the big parade on Sunday.
One of the big hits from last year Johnny and the Raindrops will be demonstrating you’re never too young to rock ‘n’ roll and by popular demand we welcome back a circus skills workshop this year.
Making his Southwell debut we welcome festival stalwart Tony Wilson, all round raconteur and musician and one of the most experienced storytellers on the circuit.
On Sunday we welcome back the fabulous Noisy Oyster with their brand new show ‘The Three Billy Pigs’ and also on Sunday expect to see Lady Lucinda with her two bodyguards visiting the festival and talking to passers by. Please give her a warm welcome.
The artistic craft and ‘make and take’ workshops are being managed this year by artist Donna Bramall who specialises in using recycled materials and is also putting together a team of artists to decorate our wooded area with some fabulous sculptures
Last but not least we have a first appearance from street performer and juggler par excellence Matt Pang, who will be performing on Saturday.
