The 2019 Line-Up
Ride a unicorn, learn to fly, flip, float like a fairy, hula hoop with circus performers, and meet real life alpacas, fairies and forest creatures. Boogie down at the Fairy Disco, get your face festival ready with our face painters and glitter tattoo artists, and try to win our fairy fancy dress competition. If you still have energy to burn, head on over to the Fairy Fit Field and take part in family yoga and knights training. Make a wish at the wishing tree, toast a s’more, get your hands dirty with some fairy gardening, learn about critters at the bug snug, explore the Fairy Trail, devour a fairy picnic, and close the day by taking in the grand finale fairy parade.
