Monstrous Festival Organiser, said: “We are really excited to be launching Monstrous at the award-winning Printworks complex. This is the first children’s event to take place in what looks set to become one of the most premier event locations in the UK. It has so many benefits for our visitors, including great transport links and family friendly tube stations. As a father myself, I know how hard it is to find quality days out that cater for the whole family. With Monstrous, we’ve created a festival that’s going to keep the kids entertained all day long and create memories that will last a lot longer. The line-up is jam-packed with 100s of things to see and do, and will offer families a rewarding experience through a combination of imagination, creativity, adventure and more, alongside a number of exciting live performances from some of the best-loved names in children’s entertainment. “
Third release tickets are on sale now priced £28.50pp. (As of print date) Babies in arms can attend free of charge. For tickets and more information
I know for sure that my boys would love this festival, the youngest would spend his whole time at the soccer school and the 10-year-old would enjoy the arcade area. Although, I think both will be very interested exploring The Beast (wish I was a child again!)
