Parents Like Us Festival


This year we ran the science tent with great success we had over 3000 visitors to our tent over two days! Thank you to al the science volunteers who made this event a great success.

The Parents Like Us Festival aims to reach young families with children age under 6 years, with education based activities and to encourage learning through play. The festival is a registered charity run by volunteers.

  1. creepy crawlies (snakes, snails, maggot racing)
