The Summer School Holidays just got a lot more FUN!
Kid’s Fest is Great for Groups, Parties and Birthday Celebrations – activities have limited capacity to book early to avoid disappointment.
Full details below
Pre-booking is essential, as tickets will not be available on the day. Children without a ticket will not be permitted to participate.
Please note that tickets for Kids’ Fest are not refundable, unless the activity is cancelled by the event organisers. In the event of poor weather, activities will take place indoors.
Please note the age range of each activity as activities will be unsuitable for very young or older children. In some cases, parents will be required to stay with their children, but we recommend that for all Kid’s Fest activities parents/guardians remain in the vicinity of the house and gardens.
Activities will take place in the house, marquee, private gardens, surrounding woodland, orchard and Stanmer Village.
