Best Event


The hugely popular 3foot People Festival, aimed exclusively at pre-school children, takes place in June each year. Over 14,000 little and big people descend onto the scenic grounds of Hylands Estate for an array of playful activities and amusements ready to inspire and entertain.

Little… and big people experienced the beautiful village of tents, tepees and domes all hosting an array of playful activities to inspire and entertain. This is the largest outdoor festival exclusively for children aged 5 and under in the UK with nearly 13,000 people attending last year. Preschool children and their parents and carers were overwhelmed with wonder as they experience this unique festival, in Hylands Park, Chelmsford. The beautiful village of tents, tepees and domes will host an array of playful activities to inspire and entertain.

Exclusively for 0-5 year olds, the festival features hundreds of activities to help stimulate curiosity, imagination and play. The range of activities little people can enjoy includes arts and craft-making sessions, a giant sandpit, a mini farm, storytelling, and many more.


Highly Recommended: Father Christmas Experience, Marsh Farm

We’ve added even more magic and more surprises to The Father Christmas Experience at Marsh Farm. From passport control at the start of your journey, it’s time to learn your elf-abet and graduate through the Elf Academy. Next stop is to meet Mother Christmas to decorate a gingerbread before entering the Snow Show for a flurry of surprises. As the children enter Father Christmas’ Grotto they’ll have to be checked on the Naughty or Nice list before meeting the real Father Christmas all the way from the North Pole. But the excitement doesn’t end there! The children then enter the toy workshop to make a special furry friend to take home before more surprises in the Toy Shop in our own Elf-ville.
