Hoo-Ha! Festival returns this August for three jam-packed days of music, dancing, and activities for little people and their families.

This page will be kept up to date with the full line up of fun but, as ever, expect all levels of Bristol Beacon’s Foyer to be filled with opportunities to get creative, have fun and burn off plenty of holiday energy! Find roof-raising sing-alongs with TJ Band, performances from Kid Carpet and inclusive dance sessions with Flamingo Chicks on the Main Stage, and opportunities to get crafty and to learn about the world with activities and workshops from Explorer Dome, Aardman, We The Curious and more.

Wed 17 Aug will be a Relaxed Day for families who might require a gentler environment with quieter activities and fewer people.

Put the below dates in your diary and come one, come all, to the free Hoo-Ha party: a hullaballoo of family fun!
