The organisers of the highly popular 3foot People Festival have announced when this year’s tickets will go on sale – and we can sense the queues forming already.

The award winning event for pre-school children will be once again held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and will take place between 27-29 June 2017.

Every years the festival welcomes around 14,000 people to the Hylands estate, with a spectacular array of activities and performances geared specifically towards those aged under 5.

The 3foot People Festival is a unique experience for families and so it always sells out long in advance. We will issue a reminder to our readers shortly before the tickets go on sale.
