At OUT West we try to make sure everyone feels included and that goes for kids too. We know how costly it can be to take kids along, so we provide a small amount of entertainment that’s free of charge for them to create, exercise and maybe learn a new skill. What feedback has been previously is that it’s a great space for them just to simply “be kids in”.
There’s a climbing wall for all ages, cardboard creations and trapeze skills (small charge). And believe it or not, they also do like a bit of music too!!
If there’s an act on stage that may be inappropriate for kids before 8pm (some musicians are more potty-mouthed than others), then we do aim to warn before they come on.
We also understand that (for whatever reason) not everyone wants loads of kids running around them at a festival and to this end we limit the tickets available for kids – it’s all worked beautifully so far and everyone appears happy with the arrangement.
New for 2018 is a quiet area for camping and we suggest that families take advantage of this, as different people like to keep different hours!!
