Rockstar or Dancing Queen?

Shropshire Kids Festival is set to come alive with music, song, dance and performance and you can get involved too.

S Factor is a project bought together by the Shropshire Music Service in partnership with the festival and also Shrewsbury Food Festival to give youngsters the chance to play on the main stage at Shrewsbury Food festival and wins some cash.

Bands and individuals who are interested in entering should contact the festival to enter. If you’re interested in watching the rising stars of the future then they will be performing all weekend on the bandstand within the quarry. We are grateful to Headstock for sponsoring the top Backline equipment to support the stars of the future.

Across the weekend, the ‘In the Groove’ stage will play host to a huge variety of acts featuring groups of all ages, from well-established brass bands to newly formed school orchestras, from ukulele groups to choirs. Come in, relax and be entertained by a wealth of Shropshire talent! Come to the performance stage to check out performance times.  

Does your Dad dancing embarrass your kids? Well its time to ‘pump up the jam’ and take it up another level with Daddy DJ sponsored by The Visual Works. We are giving you the opportunity to channel your inner Pete Tong and Westwood and take control of the decks in the Daddy DJ Tent. Let’s go old skool and entertain the current youngsters with tunes of your choosing. From vinyl to tapes and proper mixing desks there’ll be some smoke, some flashing lights and lots of Dad dancing! Dads and Grandads interesting in taking centre stage on the decks should get in contact to book their slot or take a chance and have a go on the day.

Want the opportunity to make a perfect racket as youngsters try a new instrument before committing to lessons? Well you can in the Shropshire Music Service tent, they will be bringing along a whole host of instruments so come along and have a go, you can make as much noise as you want all weekend long!

If you’re looking to channel your inner rock star then the Rock Pod should be top of your list.  The team from The Rock Project will be on hand with drums, electric and bass guitars; simply walk in and have a go with the help of expert tutors.
