Here at Nozstock we embrace the whole family festival experience – this means you will find great activities and entertainment for all. Our children’s space is a friendly, welcoming environment for both parents and littles alike. All are welcome to get creative, be amazed by wondrous stories, sculptures and entertainment, or roll your sleeves up for some physical fun. Because we know that engaged minds and fingers mean happy kids, your little ones will leave with a whole heap of things they have made and magic moments that they will never forget. All events and activities are free of charge in the kids area, as we strongly believe families shouldn’t foot the bill for festival fun. We even offer a bottle warming service! Workshops are carried out by the lovely crew from Spare Rooms Arts. Spare Room Arts has been running for 8 years, specialising in outdoor events and music festivals. Working nationwide, providing innovative and creative arts workshops to people of all ages, and even gaining gold awards for arts areas!

CRAZY COOKIES!
Children love baking and learning about our food, where it comes from, how we make it and the texture and feel of the dishes we eat. Now, in the Nozstock version of the Great British (Kiddies) Bake Off, culinary delights are just a marquee away! Learn about how biscuits are made and join in our biscuit decorating workshop.
FOREST SCHOOL
Many children’s favourite school session, we are bringing Forest School to the festival! With a range of hands on activities on offer – including whittling wood and even toasting marshmallows at the end of the day – get your child to bring out the Ray Mears in us all…
MUSIC WORKSHOPS WITH DODGY'S NIGEL CLARK

MEDITATION AND SOUND BATHS
As if yoga wasn’t enough to help you and your little ones unwind at the end of a busy day, we are also offering evening meditation sessions and sound baths for both adults and children. This is the most amazingly chilled out you will ever be…
GLITTERY, GLUEY ART BOXES
The brilliant thing about crafts is you end up with loads of amazing glittery, gluey, life-affirming works of art. The problem with such an abundance of greatness is we are not born with enough arms to carry it all! So to combat this problem we are going to decorate, spangle up and design our very own art boxes big enough to carry all your newly made precious things in. The weirder the better for this workshop! These boxes can be safely stored in the kids area all weekend and taken home with you when you go.
LET'S GO FLY A KITE
Reach for the skies and let your imaginations go wild with ideas as you decorate and design your own kites. They can really fly too so you can show off your hard work in the park when you get home. A workshop suitable for ages 1-101…
SURREAL FRAMES
Come to the kids area and make your very own picture frame – as wacky as you like! Use it to display your surreal art work or some of the photos of your weekend at the festival.
MARVELLOUS MASKS

FANTASTIC FLIP FLOPS
No more sweaty socks and stinky feet! Make your summer outfit complete with some groovy and completely wearable festival flip flops!
FESTIVAL FASHIONS
Everybody loves dressing up, and even more so at a festival! Be whoever you want to be for a weekend… scarfs, capes, skirts, you name it – it can, and will, be made!
BANDHANI TIE DYE
Back by popular demand for one day only! Let’s bring tie dye out of the 1990s and give it another chance! Tie dye is one of the oldest methods of dying fabric and is still used in India today. It involves sewing or tying the fabric and dipping it in dye. When the fabric is removed from the dye it leaves amazing and unique patterns. In this workshop we are going to make our own tie dye t-shirts. A limited amount of t shirts for children to dye will be provided but this workshop is extremely popular so you must arrive by 2pm on Saturday if you want to join in! We will run out no matter how many t shirts we provide so please feel free to bring your own clothes from home to dye!
THAT'S NOT A POT! OR IS IT?
In this workshop you will learn how to make, coil and pinch pots from air drying clay. Come back the next day to paint and decorate.
SEE THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
This year’s festival is all about Keepin’ It Surreal. You can do your bit to add to the magic and madness by making your own pin hole camera to see the world upside down. If that’s not surreal, we don’t know what is!
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION TABLE
A painting, drawing and creating table will be operating all day, everyday throughout the festival. Pens, pencils, glue, tape and random craft pieces: if you don’t fancy any of the activities on offer then come and see where your imagination takes you. Sometimes you don’t know what you want to make until it’s made!
THE THEATRE OF ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
Fancy yourself a thespian? A pop up theatre lovingly created by the Spare Room Arts Team will be keeping Little Wonderland entertained – and you are the stars of the show! Don’t fancy treading the boards yourself? Never fear! Join in with our puppet-making workshop to make your own cast of characters!

ADULT & KIDDIES YOGA AND MEDITATION
Children’s yoga is very interactive and engaging – a great way to start the day. The adults’ yoga offers parents a chance for some ‘me’ time, to stretch your way into the day whilst the children are playing. The meditation element and relaxation is mainly aimed at adults, but all are welcome.
INTERACTIVE STORY TELLING
For an escape from the festival into the most adventurous of worlds, use your imagination to help us tell the story!
