Bringing children to the heart of the Festival
In 2011, we're going to make our festival even better for children, families and the Greenbelt community.
Children should be at the heart of our festival, and we strive to make every aspect of the festival (except for the occasional piece of film or comedy) entertaining, special and possibly transformative for everyone, including younger members of our festival family.
We're going to be significantly increasing the amount of family-friendly programming at the 2011 event, with exciting new venues where families will be able to enjoy great music, film and performing arts together.
The fresh approach – which replaces the existing provision of three, two-and-a-half hour child-only sessions – will see a new dedicated family film venue, craft area and a child-friendly theatre venue alongside existing favourites Messy Space and the all-age Arena. We're confident the new Children's programme will provide more great content for more people...
So Greenbelt 2011 will be a little bit new, a little bit different, but still the same brilliant mix that makes the festival so special for children of all ages.
