Wellyfest is a family festival like no other, the perfect way to while away a few hours trying out new activities, listening to music and stories and watching artists on our main stage. Wellyfest aims to inspire through the arts and encourages creativity in people of all ages.
Following on from the successful formula of previous years the 2018 Wellyfest is bigger and even better than ever. There’s more variety and the main stage is packed with different muscians, artists and a wonderful magician. Many of our performers have worked with well known television brands such as CBBC and Britain’s Got Talent and have performed at theatre venues across the North.
Not only is the Wellyfest located in Woolley, there is definitely a woolly theme this year because three of our artists are based around sheep. Shaun the Sheep needs no introduction, a fun character who is familiar to families and has his own TV show. The Real Sheep Show is an informative show with dancing sheep, it has to be seen to be believed! Also present with be Joseph Theobald, author of the popular Marvin the Sheep series of books of children.
There are many more attractions and activities, CBBC’s Ben Shires, star presenter of “Officially Amazing” will be performing on our main stage and meeting and greeting people during the day. We also have plays, music workshops, dancers, magic and other performers on our stages.
The festival enables families to see performances in an intimate setting, meet the performers and have a go at a range of activities. Children will be able to discover new skills and hobbies and memories will be built that last a lifetime.
Wellyfest is a fun and affordable day out, five hours of fun and entertainment for the price of a one hour theatre show with much more flexibility. It’s the perfect way to introduce children to the arts and our combined Mhusika evening ticket means that a full eight hours of entertainment will provide that perfect festival feeling.
