Finding a family day out that really works for the whole family can be tough. Especially when you have a range of ages to consider. Aimed at 4 to 14 year olds, the Monstrous festival aims to be just that though.
Taking place in at Printworks London, Monstrous has over seven zones that aim to appeal to all family festival goers.
Although aimed at those over the age of 4 the Baby Garden area gives the youngest festival goers somewhere to chill out with baby sensory, messy soft play and story time.
There will also be a disco featuring some of the hottest names in kids’ entertainment – with live music and performances from stars of stage and screen. Arts and crafts workshops, a petting zoo and even an urban beach can be found in The Big Outdoors area. Thrill seekers will find plenty to keep them happy in the Magical Fun Fair Town.
The Beast, the world’s biggest inflatable obstacle course, is likely to be one of the attractions at the festival. At 272m long it sounds absolutely epic and will dwarf anything my kids have been on before. Add in Prince, Princess & Unicorn Land with promise of Unicorns, Mermaids, Disney Princess walkabout characters, dressing up and selfie zones, singalong booths and stereotypical girls will be happy. Those children that prefer football over prince and princesses may feel more at home in the Soccer School Zone. This will be run by the Chelsea FC Foundation team.
The bit I’m probably looking forward to most though is Arcade Alley. With over 1000 classic console favourites, animation studios and Virtual Reality booths it wound like my idea of tech heaven. I’m pretty sure my 13 year old step-daughter will agree.
Overall, I’m in no doubt that there will be something for children of all ages – even the adult ones!
