Best Kids Fest

Shropshire Kids Festival 2019 enjoyed record figures, with 11,000 people attending the two-day event in Shrewsbury’s quarry in May.

Beth Heath, Shropshire Festival’s founder, said, “Our fourth annual Kids Festival was a big success. We worked very hard to change the model this year, so all activities within the festival were free. We listened to the feedback from last year, and didn’t want parents to feel they needed to limit what their kids took part in.

“Feedback from this year’s festival has been incredible, with many people commenting on the fantastic value for money with such a vast range of activities which are suited to kids across a large age range of 0-14 and suited to a range of needs.”

Parents were also impressed with the range of activities in the STEAM tent organised by students from University Centre Shrewsbury, which helped children engage with science, technology, engineering, art and maths in fun ways.

Charged raised funds for the festival’s chosen charity, the Harry Johnson Trust. The trust offers help and support to children and teenagers who receive care from the Oncology Team at The Princess Royal Hospital in Shropshire.
