For budding space scientists, bookworms, fun-lovers, and thinkers alike, HowTheLightGetsIn has plenty on offer to keep children and young adults of all ages busy in our Mindcraft area. There's a whole programme of talks and events in the Mindcraft tent with experiences to pique the curiosity of 7-12 year olds. Whether it's robot workshops to philosophical experiments, we have you covered. Elsewhere on the festival site, our sandpit will keep smaller ones entertained whilst in-betweens can get serious with giant games in the Park Hangout along with our famed vintage rides!

Under-12 Children's Tickets are free!

Stay tuned for more programme announcements!
