My child is over 14, but would like to go on the activities, what ticket should I buy?
To gain access to the activities, all children will need a wristband, so if you have a big kid who wants to get stuck in, they will need a child ticket.
What activities will there be?
We've got a whole bunch of activities that your little ones can enjoy, including giant inflatables, STEM activities, a dedicated under 5s area, sports activities, arts and crafts, dance workshops, a silent disco, circus skills and SO much more!

Do you have a 'quiet hour' or less busy time?
All tickets purchased in advance online allow you early access to our event at 9am. This is normally a quieter hour before the normal opening time at 10am.
We expect early morning and lunchtime to be the busiest times, however, we do have a separate quiet room for anyone who needs a little time to refresh.
Are dogs allowed?
As this is an indoor event that is likely to be loud, dogs will not be allowed, unless they are assistance dogs.
Will my children need a change of clothes?
Yes, some of our activities involve getting stuck in, such as our foam party, so please bring a towel and a change of clothes.
Can parents get involved in the activities?
This is a kid's festival, aimed at letting children enjoy a whole bunch of different activities and trying something new, parents will not be allowed to join in on most activities. However, some activities, such as craft, parents will be able to get involved in. Children MUST be supervised at all times.
CAn i bring cash or is it card only?
The International Centre operates a contactless payment policy, only card payments are accepted on-site for parking, cloakroom and food and drink vendors. Cash will not be accepted.
Can I bring food and drink?
We do have food and drink vendors on-site offering tasty treats and delicious street food, but you are able to bring in your own food and drinks. You will not be able to bring alcohol into the event.
The International Centre will have food and drink available to purchase, please take a look at the menu here.
