ONBlackheath Festival: a weekend of musical family fun 13 & 14 July 2019

A fun child friendly festival in London: what's not to love!?

OnBlackheath combines great music with a stellar line-up from classics like Jamiroquai, The Roots and Rag & Bone Man with a host of child friendly activities to keep little ones entertained without having to venture outside of London – result!

Street feast from model market in Lewisham will be catering to the tastebuds throughout the weekend and keep the foodies in your family satisfied. There will be pizza, mac & cheese, natural ice cream and loads loads more (even the fussy should find something to munch on). 

For those attending with kids, the Family Playground is the first point of call where you can see (and hear) Andy and the Odd Socks or catch Mister Maker Live in a show alongside his sidekick rectangle. Maynard’s Mini Zoo is making an appearance and bringing with them reptiles and insects, so get over your arachnophobia and stroke a tarantula, get your charm on for the snakes or blend with the chameleons. All the animals are hand reared so (should) behave themselves as you learn about them, dispel myths and face any fears (all of that in front of the children!)

Boppin’ Bunnies are well known throughout South East London for their engaging magically entertaining classes for under 5’s. So grab your toddler (or strap your baby on) and get ready to bust some moves. The Flying Seagull Project is making an appearance. The UK based charity which spreads love and laughter with their circus workshops, clown doctoring and musical dance lessons will have fun activities for the whole family to get involved in.

And for those science aficionados, the Science Museum will be on site to amaze and inspire the curious, from slime making to instant ice-cream and earth shaking bangs to space exploration shows and loads more. For more family friendly festivals check out our picks for 2019.
