Shropshire Kids Festival – Tickets On Sale Now

Tickets have gone on sale for a festival the likes of which Shrewsbury has never seen before. Shropshire Kids Festival will take place in the quarry on 23rd and 24th of April and it promises to be the biggest, most creative, fun filled weekend for kids of all ages.

With dozens of amazing activities to try from the massive 75m water slide to zorbing, a helter-skelter and a go-kart track, it’s going to be difficult to decide which activity to have a go at first. 

Organiser Beth Heath who co-founded the Shrewsbury Food Festival said: “This event really is going to be something special.  There will be a number of zones with activities for kids of all ages from babies through to early teens.  The weekend is all about trying something new, getting hands on, discovering a new passion and learning, but in a totally fun way.”

Festival zones will include outdoor sports where kids can partake in tennis, rugby and bubble football and indoor sports which will include jujitsu, karate and yoga.  Competitive types will love the inflatable obstacle course and the ‘wacky races’, which will include a laughter inducing water balloon race and a highly anticipated space hopper race.  While the races are free, there will be a chance to do good while having fun, by making a donation to the Harry Johnson Trust.

Serious skills will be on show throughout the weekend, as dance acts, singers and musicians share their talent on the festival’s main stage.  And there are more creative activities with art and craft sessions being run by local company Compost Kids.

If they still have the energy after all that, there’s also a circus skills tent, storytelling, kids cookery, and to top it all, a not to be missed foam party!

Even the youngest children have been catered for with baby sensory sessions, baby yoga, baby singing and toddlers tumble play area.

Tickets are priced at £6.00 per child and £1.00 per adult, which entitles a child to participate in most activities for free.  Where there is a charge, a percentage will go to the events chosen charity, the Harry Johnson Trust.  A local charity which offers help and support to children, who receive care from the Oncology team at The Princess Royal Hospital in Shropshire, as they go through their journey with childhood cancer.
