Big Tent is a family friendly festival. Firstly, you don't have to pay for your kids to get in to the festival (under 12s go free) and once in, just about everything is free to enjoy (though occasionally you might be asked to make a donation). Children's activities will be dotted around this year's festival so a great chance for everyone to explore the new site. At Big Tent you'll find a fantastic range of activities for children. We are adding all the time so come back soon and see what's new but right now, we can confirm the following:
