“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood”
Welcome to the Kidz Field and its extraordinary world of wonder and magic. Around our field we have things to do and see, make or join in with, bounce on, jump off, climb up and fly in.
We’ve got castles and aliens, bubbles and clowns, swingboats and roundabouts, explosions, magicians, stuntmen and technicolour nuns.
Our select troupe of Imagineers and Playworkers weave wonder and make magic happen, there’s more to see and do than you could ever believe, so dive in and let’s blast off!
The Kidz Field is open from 12pm til 7pm on Thursday, and from 9am til 7pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Kidz Field represents the original ethos of Glastonbury. We keep the Utopian spirit alive and we believe in the magic of sharing and play.
The Kidz Field is a trip back to gentler times. Our cast and crew create a production filled with honest values and meaningful engagement. Kidz Field families come here to make things together and take in all the splendours and delights we have to offer. As our motto says... "It's never too late to have a happy childhood".
We believe in quality entertainment for kids, we don’t endorse products, sell tie-ins or put on empty shows with bright colours and no nutritional value. We don’t do flyers or adverts or stalls or “pester power”. We’re happy to be different. We celebrate difference and diversity and we wholeheartedly endorse the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a right of the child to rest. leisure and play. To enjoy recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in Cultural life and the Arts.
All activities, shows and workshops in our field are FREE
The Kidz Field is about inspiring our children to live in a better tomorrow. We create a magical world for a few days and we want you all to come and live in it and take some joy home with you. Have an adventure that you’ll never forget in The Kidz Field!

Coreo is one of the great new circus talents of our generation. He is from three generations of clown, The Hazzards, and his grandfather, Michael Balfour, was one of the truly Great Britons. Michael ‘Ancient Hazzard’ Balfour was one of the founding inspirations of the Kidz Field and Coreo’s father Perry, ‘Alwayz Hazzard’, appeared with us for years and now Coreo has taken over the role as the Hazzard in the Kidz Field. His blend of clowning, magic, wonder and awe is enchanting and his show is a treat for all who are drawn in.
