At Standon Calling you can expect a fun-filled plethora of daytime activities and performances for babies, kids and teens in dedicated spaces, as well as interwoven into the festival’s programming.
Whether it’s your first festival as a family, you’re trying Standon Calling for the first time, or you’re returning to party with us, we hope you have an amazing time together.
2021 saw the return of family favourites Horrible Histories, How To Train Your Dinosaur and the infamous Dick & Dom DJ Battle.
There’s non-stop fun and games in the Kids Area with dance, theatre, circus, music, arts, crafts, sensory play and fire camp storytelling made for an unforgettable weekend with the family.
Keepers of calm, Mortimer Nannies bring an experienced festival team of fun, creative Nannies and Assistants to host ‘stay up late’ sessions each evening in their cosy HQ. The Mortimer Tent will be cosily decked out with fairy lights, comfy snuggle pods and cushions so the children can snuggle down, listen to a story, play a board game by torchlight or watch a movie.
The Mortimer Team is comprised of fully qualified Nannies and DBS checked assistants. With generous adult:child ratios and decades of experience between them, you can feast, relax, pamper or party the night away, safe in the knowledge that your little ones are having an equally wonderful time.
Private In-Tent Nannies are also available via direct booking – contact Tanja on email@example.com
We were delighted to welcome Woodland Tribe back, bigger and better than ever for our 15th Birthday party.
The weekend saw Tree Swings, an Adventure Playground, Build Your Own Time Machine plus an all new Giant Zip Line!
Yes, that’s right – a festival with a swimming pool!
Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday at advertised times and entirely free to use as part of your festival ticket, the swimming pool is refreshing when the sun is shining and heated when good ol’ British weather makes an appearance.
Just don’t forget your cossie!
To camp in our designated Family Campsite opt for Family Camping when booking your Weekend Tickets.
