Kids in the county

Now in its third year, the Shropshire Kids Festival in Shrewsbury Quarry is looking forward to its biggest ever year, with creative fun for all ages across the weekend of 19 and 20 May.

Organiser Beth Heath says, “Youngsters and their parents will be able to enjoy the royal wedding on a huge screen and enjoy afternoon tea at a VIP wedding party, and there are dozens of activities, from the massive water slide to zorbing, bubble football, foam parties, a helter-skelter and a go-kart track!

“There will be 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 and learning, but in a fun way.”

A sports zone will feature Shrewsbury Town in the Community and Crossbar Coaching, and kids can join in tennis, rugby, football, dance and netball and yoga. Competitive types will love the inflatable obstacle course and the ‘wacky races’, including the highly anticipated space hopper race – and there’s also a gaming van. While races are free, there will be a chance to make a donation to the Harry Johnson Trust, which helps local children with cancer.

Visit for tickets, priced at £10 per child and £3 per adult.
