The Hub is the Festival’s focal point for young musicians. Enjoy brilliant sessions and engaging workshops for children and teens, led by some of the brightest stars on the folk scene. Workshops range from easy to intermediate and you should bring your own instruments. There’s also the opportunity to participate in The Hub Band Project and perform in the Club Tent.

Children’s Music and Dance Workshop
Ages 8-12 are welcome at our friendly workshops. No experience is needed to participate in singing and dancing workshops, while the music sessions are tailored for players who have some experience and can bring their own instruments. This year there will be the chance to learn song, clog and ceilidh dance, easy tunes and beginner’s guitar, while each day will kick off with a lively dance wake-up workshop.
Playground and Paddling pool
Kids can enjoy the playground and paddling pool at Cherry Hinton Hall; jelly shoes recommended for anyone using the pool. Under 14s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult, as the facilities are not supervised.
Crèche and Children’s Activities
Nipperbout Event Childcare will be running our free crèche and children’s activity area at Cherry Hinton Hall. A breast-feeding and nappy-changing area is also available. There are thirty spaces in the crèche for children aged 2-8, including four spaces for under-4s. The activities are intended for children aged 9-13, and this year’s participants.
