Eden Festival Kidz Arena will be out of this world

This year’s Eden Festival will play host to an ‘Out of this World’ theme for the Kidz Arena which will take you into space and to all things beyond, above and away from our earth, into a land of dragons and dreams.

The area will be decorated with all sorts of colourful planets, stars, other worldly creatures and larger than life flora and fauna throughout the festival on June 13, 14 and 15 at Raehills Meadow, near Moffat.

Most of the craft workshops will follow the same theme and kids will be able to make their own flags, martian masks and space shields, as well as help make carnival dragons and banners along with many other exciting workshops. A colour filled parade will tour the site on Sunday afternoon making as much noise as possible.

Producing the Kidz Arena is Sara Best who said: “We hope to inspire new generations by providing a range of workshops and entertainment whilst being as sustainable as possible and promoting environmentally friendly arts and crafts in a natural setting.

“Children are able to make and take home items made from recycled or unwanted materials that have been locally sourced where possible. Physical activities such as parachute games and kids yoga sessions will also be available, and as children are accompanied at all times, parents get to share the memorable experiences.”

The Kidz arena includes a craft marquee (20 x 40ft) and a little ones yurt, and is open 9-7pm each day. The area is managed by a dedicated team of staff, performers and volunteers all working together to create a happy environment.

Tickets for the weekend festival are priced at £95 per adult, children under 12 are free.
