15/08/17

The line-up of children’s entertainment for this year’s OnBlackheath festival has been revealed, with plenty on offer when our site welcomes ticket holders on Saturday 9th-Sunday 10th September.

Our Storytelling & Performance stage will feature special appearances from family favourites and some intriguing and immersive entertainment. Elsewhere, young visitors will be encouraged to get out and explore a range of activities across the weekend as well as enjoy some fun crafts and games. 

Comedian and writer Julian Clary will be reading excerpts from his best-selling children’s book series “The Bolds” and will be joined by award winning children’s illustrator David Roberts

Also joining our children’s line-up will be Children’s Laureate (2007-2009) novelist, poet and author of the enduring classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen. Other key highlights include an appearance by CBeebies star Mister Maker, entertaining pre-schoolers in fun and imaginative ways. 

In our Craft Activities area you’ll find  Other World Arts, the Hugh Jart painting wall, Daemon or Doppleganger and that festival staple – face painting.

In the Theatre and Games zone The Flying Seagulls Project and Albion Kids Show will ensure plenty of magical moments for youngsters.
