Activities include hands-on, multi-sensory workshops and entertainment all weekend for children of all ages. Craft workshops, theatre, circus, story-telling, puppetry, music, comedy, sandpit, skate ramp, baby and toddler tents, yoga and massage, bouncy castles and its very own Boomtown street with 'real' venues such as ‘Rat-a-Tattoo’, the ‘Piggy Bank’ and the Post Office for all those snail-mail delivery needs!
