Big Family Festival:


The Big Family Festival returns in 2018 with it’s accessible family festival happening in the heart of the midlands!

Previous line ups include BBC’s The Voice Finalist Lyrickal , CBeebies Rastamouse and Cook and Line performed at the first Big Family Festival in the UK.

The festival was founded by married couple Angela and George from Sutton Coldfield and they have been running big dance events for the last 15 years and realised there was a genuine gap in the market for an event that was truly suitable for all the family. “We wanted to create something that encompasses all aspects of children’s entertainment in a festival setting. A festival that has its main focus as children and entertaining them. Something that people didn’t have to endure a 3-5hr motorway journey southbound to find, something that hopefully may tempt those further south to travel up a motorway themselves”

This great family weekend is suitable for all ages and is a great way for families to enjoy the festival season without all the hustle and bustle of the summer holidays.

Access Cardholders can use their card at for a free companion ticket to shows booked via the booking line with valid +1 symbol.
