Is there anything for kids to do?
We pride ourselves on being a child friendly festival. To prove it, everyone under the age of 16 is allowed in for free.
There’s lots of space for kids to just generally muck about, make new friends and explore in the old fashioned way. There are numerous child focused workshops and activities – in the past, they’ve included drumming, ukulele, guitar, gamelan and many others. There are woods, rivers and tracks to explore.
The campsite is very friendly. If it’s wet, then Carlisle has lots to offer and there’s a great indoor play area at Walby farm just a few miles away. And be aware that all stewards are aware of our child protection policy too. We quite like it when it seems like children go a bit feral at Music on the Marr - we haven’t banned computer games yet but we might do one day…
