Best Summer 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.
