Have any organiser considered a festival mainly focused on chidren. I am thinking along the lines of all performers being under 25 years old & all activities to be aimed at child age groups eg. junior workshops of diffrent levels, morris teams. dances ect.
This would have to be overseen by adults who are qualified for this type of activity but parents could take a backseat or lend a hand & the final concert could be of what they have lernt over the time the festival run, at most I should think 2 days.

Sounds like fun (or hell, depending on your standpoint). Not thinking of doing at Butlins are you :)

When Sid Calderbank does a turn (Lancashire dialect song and poetry), he brings along a satchel of CDs and announces two prices: there's the standard price (which is very reasonable), or "they're free to anyone under 21". When I saw him he didn't have to give any away, sadly.

What do you reckon Leveller...... we could do a small one at Kirkby Fleetham?

Pub, village hall and if we did it in the summer- village green?

Paul, it's certainly worth thinking about if we could get enough kids together. Maybe we could put together something like a short folk "opera" for them to perform based around some familiar songs. Just a thought.

I do wish there was a "like" button on here Mr Happy!

Wondered if trying to book acts with children rather just those under 25 might be a good idea.......?

I'm just consulting she who runs kids singing workshops in schools and at Festivals for ideas (The Mrs).

We'd probably need a green field site really, for it to be as safe as possible.

Remember that old theatre and film adage. Avoid working with children and animals!!

Although personally I fall more in levellers bracketed standpoint it sounds like a good idea - it might be worth you contacting these folks: Shooting Roots

Damn, I thought this was about a festival devoted to Child ballads. That would be fun, too.

A childerens festival would be fun. There are lots of childrens dance troupes (or there should be) and concerts featuring young artists or choirs should attract a good following.

I would suggest looking at a town-based venue where passing crowds could be involved - Darlington or Northallerton (easy transport links) would be ideal and why not think big and call it The North of England Chidren's Folk Festival.

There would also be the possibility of getting Arts Funding for such a venture.

Let me know if I can help in any way

Overall a really good idea.

My daughter goes to a rock festival called Camp Bestival in Dorset with my granddaughter (currently 2yrs old). It bills itself as family friendly and caters for kids. It's timed for the beginning of the summer holidays and as my daughter is a teacher it suits her really well.

Their line up seems to include a mix or adult and child orientated entertainers in a wide variety of styles.

It might be worth checking them out for ideas.
