Vantastival for kids

Vantastival is a family friendly festival and children are welcomed. Children under 14 have free entry but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  This year the kids’ area is sponsored by Silverline Catering. On Saturday and Sunday scheduled children’s activities will take place in the family camping area. Kids’ stuff includes art and craft workshops, a bouncy castle, face painting, fancy dress parade, mask making, kiddie’s disco, kid’s movies screenings and much more…

Scrapheap Challenge

This year’s scrapheap challenge will again involve the makeover of an old van in the week coming up to the festival. It will be fitted out as a campervan on site over the weekend by a team of conversion enthusiasts led by carpenter Ian Hurley. There will be short daily workshops on the various aspects of conversion, from interior fit out and electrics to water management. Parts and interiors will be pilfered from scrap caravans. Throughout the weekend festival-goers can buy raffle tickets, and on Sunday night the van will be raffled off to a lucky winner!

If you are interested in in donating a van or old caravan to the cause, please email
