Brace yourselves! We’re poised for the stampede as 3foot People Festival tickets go on sale.

The 3foot People Festival, based in Chelmsford, is returning for its twelfth year and is scheduled to take place from Tuesday 26 June to Thursday 28 June 2018.

Following yet another sell-out last year, the UK’s largest preschool event is expecting to welcome nearly 14,000 people over three days. The award-winning event will be held within the picturesque Hyland Park.

Children and their parents and carers will be able to enjoy dozens of shows and activities in the decorated grounds of the Hyland estate.

Tickets are on sale to the general public from Wednesday 7 March 2018 at 9.00am. Click here to buy your 3foot tickets.
