To compliment our huge evening events we’re throwing the gates open to the park during the daytime with a whole of host of FREE activities for all the family

Set in the majestic Williamson Park we’ve created an exciting free family festival with surprises around every corner. As you follow the paths throughout the park you come across hidden woodland with natural stages and amphitheatres that make the park the perfect venue to host this unique event with surprises at every turning.

We’ve booked a range of artists and activities to appeal to all members of your family. The best part is that it’s totally free between 9.00am-3.00pm. Grab your free ticket!

The day will be full of music and entertainment for your whole family to enjoy with plenty of spots to sit in the sunshine (yes we’ve booked that too) and enjoy some delicious Street Food or a cold beer from one of our bars.

The free family event will have theatre performances, storytelling, music and craft workshops and so much more.

Please Note: The family area will close at 3.00pm so make sure you don’t get there too late and for those of you that want to join the nighttime activities don’t forget to purchase your tickets today, prices start from £40…

Take a magical journey throughout the park around the hidden pathways meeting the weird and wonderful on this fun-filled family adventure in Lancaster.
