Shropshire Kids Festival will take place in the quarry on 13th and 14th May and it promises to be the biggest, most creative, fun filled weekend for kids of all ages.
With dozens of amazing activities to try from the massive water slide to zorbing, bubble football, two foam parties, zip line, a helter-skelter and a go-kart track, it’s going to be difficult to decide which activity to have a go at first.
Organiser Beth Heath said: “This event really is going to be something special. There will be a number of 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 a new passion and learning, but in a totally fun way.”
Festival zones will include a new huge sports zone run by Shrewsbury Town in the Community where where kids can partake in tennis, rugby, football and and indoor sports which include yoga. Competitive types will love the inflatable obstacle course and the ‘wacky races’, which will include a laughter inducing water balloon race and the highly anticipated space hopper race. While the races are free, there will be a chance to do good while having fun, by making a donation to the Harry Johnson Trust.
Serious skills will be on show throughout the weekend, as dance acts, singers and musicians share their talent on the festival’s main stage. And there are more creative activities with art and craft sessions focusing on collage and sculpture.
If they still have the energy after all that, there’s also a circus skills bigtop, storytelling, kids cookery, gaming van, youth club and to top it all, a not to be missed foam party!
Even the youngest children have been catered for with baby sensory sessions, baby yoga, baby singing and toddlers tumble play area.
