Gloworm Festival, Nottinghamshire: Festival Preview



After the success of last year, Gloworm is taking over Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire once again. It’s one of the best family festivals taking place in the UK, and lasts a full weekend from Saturday 19th – Sunday 20th August with both days running from 10am to 7pm.

The weekend will be packed with tons of fun activities to keep the whole family entertained from morning ‘til night, and we’ve got a round up of some of the best goings on throughout the weekend:

Dino Zone

The dinosaur area is set to be a brilliant experience for the kids. Unfortunately, there will be no real dinosaurs for them to meet, but they still look realistic and the activity looks like a whole lot of fun.It includes a meet and greet with Rex the T Rex, a meet and greet with Baby Dinos and Dino Crafts.

The Beach

The Gem 106 beach is back due to popular demand! It’s much more than just sand and water though. While the adults can laze around in the giant deck chairs with a drink, there are plenty of activities going off to keep the kids busy.
From the Pirate Ship picnic area, to the two soft play buses as well as lots of beach balls and games, and even donkey rides. All of this while summer tunes will be playing all day long.

The Hive

New to this year’s festival is the creative space hosted by Area In-between. It’s been created not only for the kids, but also teens. They offer opportunities to create art, produce music and even make films, as well as taking part in breakdancing sessions and the chance to have a go on Dizzy the Bike. There’s even a chill-out zone if you want to put your feet up.

Village Green

Another new area for the 2017 festival offers even more activities for the family. It’s sponsored by the baby food company, ‘Babease’ and is full of foody fun. There will be cooking with founder and head chef of Babease, Tom Redwood as well as Rustie Lee. Morris dancers will be joining, Punch and Judy, handmade theatre and more!

Gloworm After Dark

The festival itself may be finishing at 7pm both nights, but there will be a sectioned off area that’s open until 10pm for the night owls. On Saturday, three S Club members will be giving you a true S Club-style party. There is even a Gloworm cinema to get your little ones ready for bed, and the fairground will also be staying open into the night.

Whether you’re planning on camping over and spending the whole weekend at Gloworm or just having a day trip at the festival, there’ll be plenty to keep you busy.
