The Wilkswood Reggae Festival is, as much as anything else, a family-friendly festival and we have a wealth of activities, entertainment and other kid’s stuff to keep your bundles of joy happy and absorbed. As all of us with children know, if the kids are happy, then mum and dad will be happy too!
Take a look at our video which offers a brief snapshot of the 2017 festival, showing the family-friendly nature of the festival and lots of children having fun! You can see the Kid’s Zone with plenty of hale bales to clamber over, the bake-your-own pizza stall the yoga sessions, the supervised nature walks and the skateboard ramps. It’s a safe, relaxed place to spend some time away from the hurly burly for children and adults alike!
This excellent video was filmed, edited and produced by Alex Hendrey who produces low-cost, high quality video content for business websites or social media. Contact him at Tampered Vision Videography.
