A magician, an international freestyle football star, and a circus performer are just some of the acts topping the bill at a new family festival coming to Hertfordshire this summer.

Kids Fest Herts is taking place on August 19 in the Festival Field at Willows Activity Farm, London Colney, with a full line-up of family fun set to keep little ones (and big ones!) entertained.

The new event is aimed at families with children up to ten years.

Kids Fest Herts special events manager Sarah Taylor said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be launching our first family festival this summer. 

"Our team has put in immense effort to create an unforgettable experience that is jam-packed with interactive activities, live performances, and educational workshops that all children will love.”

Sarah added: “We have an amazing programme of entertainers, activities, play and fun for all our guests, whatever their age.

“Families are also welcome to camp overnight, either before or after the festival with their own tent or one that we can provide.”
