The demand for tickets to this year’s 3Foot People Festival has been so high that event organisers have announced the release of an additional 750 tickets.

Over 14,000 tickets to the award-winning festival were snapped up in just a few days when they were released in April. Now many more lucky families will have the chance to attend this ever-popular event, which specifically caters to children under five years old.

The tickets are due to be released on Wednesday 25th May, so make sure you act today to avoid missing out.

The festival will take place on 28, 29 and 30 June 2016 and will be held at Hylands Park, in Chelmsford.

Festival Director, Andy Winmill, explains: “The 3foot People Festival has become a wonderful date in the region’s calendar and this year tickets sold out faster than ever. We want to ensure that as many people as possible can share in the 3foot People experience, which is why we’ve worked hard to offer the same opportunity to a further 750 little ones and their carers.”

The 3foot People Festival is a multi-award winning event (Best Event 2015 Essex Tourism and Hospitality Awards, Best Outdoor Event 2015 Primary Times Star Awards) curated especially for pre-school children, all within the beautiful grounds of Hylands Estate.

This year’s festival will feature Glastonbabies, a giant sandpit, Imagination Station Puppets, Little Stars Theatre, Garlic Theatre, Mad Science, Horse World and a whole host more!
