Press Release April 2011 – Festival Kidz
Well, it all started…
… back in the summer of 2010, Festival Kidz was barely a twinkle in the eye of festival-going mum, Romany. She loves festivals, and her kids love festivals.
Romany firmly believes that taking children to family-oriented festivals can be a fantastic and educational experience for children but felt it was difficult to find information to help parents choose which festival would be best for their family or even what sort of gear you might need. She soon discovered other parents felt exactly the same way and with the encouragement and support of one friend in particular, Louise, she set up Festival Kidz.
Festival Kidz is a website that aims to provide the answers to all those hundreds of questions you have when taking kids to a festival for the first time, and to link up newbies and festival veterans, creating an online community where reviews, advice, tips and experiences can be shared. Festival Kidz supports and encourages the growing number of parents and carers who want to share the music festival scene with their youngsters.
For families who want to prepare in advance, they will soon be launching a fantastic online shop. The product range will be carefully chosen to offer only those items that make festivals easier to manage or a whole lot more fun. The range will include wagons, hair garlands, ear defenders, wellies, books, baby essentials, sun hats, clothing, fancy dress, circus toys, and many more individual and boutique items. They even offer personal alternatives to festival Portaloos!
Festival Kidz will be running stalls at festivals too. In addition to their usual product range, they also offer a hire service for bulkier items of equipment, like wagons and travel cots, and run baby-wearing clinics so parents can experiment with different ways of carrying their babies round festivals.
The website is bursting with up to date festival information and includes a brilliant festival map to help you to decide which festival is best for you, tips and informative blog posts, which the parenting community can actively engage with and this is supported by their extensive social networking activity on Twitter and Facebook.
Festival Kidz have taken out the stress and fear factor of taking kids to festivals and are aiming to make it a must have experience for every family. With more and more families opting for holidays in the UK this year, Festival Kidz has seen a huge rise in the amount of families trying out the family festival experience.
“Parents are looking for more enriching experiences for their family. Family-friendly festivals are an obvious choice because there is such a wide variety of things to do and see from drumming to cookery, storytelling to fire shows. Festivals have long since moved on from the drink and drugs hedonism they once were – these days festivals encompass every aspect of creativity, art and culture.”
Romany Greatrex, Festival Kidz founder
It just proves that festivals and kids are a good mix!

Press Release January 2010: Maisie’s Mountain
This beautifully illustrated book focuses around the character of a little girl called Maisie and she loves things but she just can’t stop collecting them
She had things to wear, Things to play with, Things to make other things with and….well everything really.
So what will happen when she runs out of room? A cautionary tale for young children about having too much, told in a fun way with colourful illustrations throughout. A great book for children between the ages of 2 and 5 who can escape into Maisie’s world and identify with the attachment Maisie has with her things.
The book has been released by up and coming author and illustrator Lorna Murphy, who has published this completely by herself. It’s a chance to discover a new talent and own a book which will no doubt go on to be a collectors item before it’s snapped up by a major publishing house. Maisie’s Mountain is the first of several books Lorna intends to publish. It’s a great achievement and she is an inspiration to others that you can be courageous, follow your dreams and make things happen all by yourself.
