3foot People Festival 2017

The award winning 3foot People Festival returns to Hylands Park, Chelmsford on 27, 28 and 29 June, 2017.

Back for its twelfth year, the award winning event aimed at pre-school children welcomes over 14,000 little and big people as they descend onto the scenic grounds of Hylands Park for an array of

playful activities and amusements ready to inspire and entertain.

As well as festival favourites such as Glastonbabies, Horse World and 3foot Beach, this year also features new additions including Teacup ride, Inflatable World, and Bee Creative woodland wonderland.

Once on site all activities and attractions are free to use, and suitable for children aged 0 – 5 years.

And to help fuel the little ones there is a mouth-watering selection of food offering child portions, plus vegan, vegetarian and allergy free options.


A timetable will be available to download prior to the event, and will include a map plus information on attractions and the 5 main activity areas:

Music & Movement
The 3foot People Festival loves to get active and nothing is better than getting moving and shaking than in one of the dedicated music, movement or dance spaces.

Theatre & Storytelling
With numerous performance spaces on site including the main big top, you’ll never be far from a spellbinding spectacle.

Arts & Crafts
Everyone loves to create, and at the 3foot People Festival we’re no different with plenty of opportunity to make something special to take home.

Sporting Activities
They’ll be all kinds of sporting activities to introduce and try, with structured sessions allowing children to develop their balance and co-ordination skills as well as building social confidence.

Play
Prepare to let your little ones go wild and burn off that youthful energy.
