Play At Home Festival

Play At Home Festival 23 May 2020

Free virtual kids’ festival bringing joy to the nation


The festival is completely free, the full lineup can be viewed at


The exclusive lineup puts play back at the heart of the home, encouraging children to use their imaginations and creativity and to connect to their families. Children’s favourite characters and celebrities will appear, with festival wristbands available for you to print and cut out at home.


Anyone who was hoping to come to 3foot People this year will be excited to hear that there will be a 3foot virtual stage, hosted on the @3footfestival Facebook page, just for pre-schoolers. Between 12pm and 5pm each day, little ones can enjoy unique entertainment: dancing, relaxing, music, baby and toddler sensory sessions, partying with Glastonbabies, exercise with Little Scrummers Rugby, laughing along with shows from the Travelling Theatrebox… and much more!


The festival is also raising funds for the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal, so although it is all free, donations are welcomed.


To get your young ones ready for the festival vibe, a free downloadable 3foot People activity pack is available now online. Make a crafty puppet, get moving with sporty activities and a wild scavenger hunt, enjoy a story and try out some Basking Babies yoga – it’s all available, along with colouring-in sheets and puzzles, at
