Little Splendour… a kids’ festival within the festival.
The Return of Little Splendour!!!!
Let’s hear it for the Kidz! KidzKlub Australia is once again proud to present Little Splendour – a dedicated space designed exclusively for big and little kids. Parents or carers can bring their little festival goers to relax, play and let their kiddie freak flag fly. Located in a grassy field that is fully fenced and secured, Little Splendour features special zones designated for both little kids and pre-tweens.
Little Splendour has something for the whole fam and is FREE to enjoy from 10:00am – 5:00pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
This year we bring back some of our most popular features as well as some brand, spanking new ones.
Parents with babies and young children do not pass the Little Kidz space where we have a giant Tipi where parents can retreat to feed, change and rest up. This parents retreat is open for families each day from 10:00am until midnight. Yep, you can come and go and use these facilities all night long. It’s a cosy retreat complete with baby change facilities, lounge area, tables and benches for meals.
There’s also an area with mini park, giant sandpit, music garden, a littlies jumping castle and the Artie Fartie Partie our arts and crafts tent for little hands and minds. There’s also a second tipi for dress ups and storytelling with character visits from fairies, pirates, princesses and maybe even the odd cockatoo throughout the day.
If you’re trying to entertain the older crew head to the Big Kidz Zone which has lots to keep your active pre-tweens entertained. Think sports and activities, a jumping castle, face painting and giant board games. From 12:00pm daily there will be a full workshop program of arts and craft with old favourites like floral crowns and wire tree pendants. New to the Little Splendour program this year will be a tie-dye workshop and eco-jewellery making.
Under our ‘little’ Big Top will be live performances sure to make you wiggle or giggle or both! Enjoy the magic wonder of Johnny the Jester, a puppet show from Kiddywinks and the Sound Synergy Drumming workshop. There will be performances from Red Rocket 3, Poppy Galactic and the Beat, Indigenous Dancers, the Barefoot Gypsies, Aspara Gus and the Vegetable Plot, Musical Theatre and a Sunday set from Bunny Racket. There’ll be super cool tricks by Trickstar Freestyle Footballers and roving performances by Circus Arts and Fiesta.
Kick back each afternoon and enjoy bubble magic from Shorty Brown and chilled tunes from DJ Sol. Sol made his first appearance at Little Splendour last year and has been busy smashing the under-age circuit in Sydney ever since!
Standby for a few other surprises that are sure to knock your stripy socks off too, so be sure to join our socials to get the scoop on more announcements as we get closer.
The Moonshine Roasters will return to fuel you up with their locally roasted coffee brew and tasty treats. Grab a cuppa from 10:00am to 5:00pm Friday to Sunday.
