The Festival Ethos – Here at BFF we realised as parents ourselves, that if it's family friendly festival that's packed full of entertainment then it's a 3-5hr motorway journey southbound that you will have to endure to find one that ticks all the boxes.
We wanted to bring something to the Midlands, something for all the family to enjoy, something that may indeed make our friends down south consider venturing up a motorway or two themselves!
The idea came to light when an already established and very successful nightclub promoter here in the Midlands, his wife and their two children sat around the kitchen table during a dinner time chat. Hoping to offer something entertaining, fun, involving the local communities and businesses and all at a reasonable cost to the public.
At a very accessible location to all of its neighbouring towns and cities as well as those from further afar the site we have chosen is perfect for this type of event.
We will be offering camping for those wanting to make a weekend of it, as well as day ticket options for the local people. You don't have to bring children along to enjoy the festival either, with an outdoor cinema, craft stalls, a farmers market, tribute acts, dance workshops, comedians, science shows, circus skills, a solar powered arena, the finest street food vendors and bars with lots more to be added and announced there really is something for everyone.
