For Families


Scoop up the whole family and escape reality for a magical holiday in the Gardens which they’ll never forget.

From the largest to the very littlest Larmer, we’ve got a mass of activities, shows and more to keep your family enthralled and entertained at Larmer Tree Festival.

Family Festivaling Facilities

Around the festival our award-winning loos are easily located and readily available, and once you’ve settled on the Family Lawns to enjoy the non-stop entertainment you’ll find a conveniently placed baby changing tent and a café serving special portions for little Larmers.

Our loos and lovely hot showers are also easily located in our Family Camping area, where you can all enjoy sleeping under the stars together whilst looking out on a view of the Cranborne Chase. After parking your car in the car park the Family Camping area is a 5-10 minute walk, and then it’s just a short walk to the festival. However, if you fancy something more luxurious for your troops to bed down in read on…

We’re all going on a Summer Holiday…

Hi de hi campers! Why not join us for a weeks’ worth of fun! If you book a Holiday ticket you’ll get to explore and enjoy everything the Cranborne Chase and stunning surrounding area has to offer two days before the festival even starts, and you’ll be in prime position for the opening night.

Plus, Holiday Campers get to stay and relax in Camp Rushmore. This is where, if you fancied a touch of luxury for the family, you can book with our lavish Comfy Camping partners. Picture yurts, tipis, beautiful gypsy bow top caravans and more… trust us they’re worth checking out! There’s also an affordable option for those of you who would love to turn up to a pre-pitched tent, but aren’t fussed about it being too fancy.

Hire a trolley or wagon from Mr Trolley to transport your tent bedding, children to the campsite on arrival with ease! If you fancy keeping your trolley for longer, use it to take the Little Larmers round the festival during the evening – so you enjoy the late night performances and they can enjoy the ride, or a nap!

Keeping the troops together

You’ll get a wristband for your children on arrival to put your mobile number on, and should you become separated, our dedicated and super-friendly missing and found children’s tent team will scoop them up and reunite you all. Your children are your responsibility at all times, so please don’t allow them to wander off.

Ticket info

Bringing the whole family to Larmer Tree has never been so affordable. For 2016 children’s tickets for those 10 and under, are completely free! And you won’t see any increase in the price of youth tickets as we’ve frozen them across all tiers.

Tickets include tent camping for the dates booked, vehicle passes need to be bought separately.

Child and youth tickets can only be bought with accompanying adult tickets. There is a limit of three youth, child or under 5s tickets per adult ticket purchased, to make sure that all youths are appropriately supervised at the festival (please email the festival office if you require more). It goes without saying, but all under 18s at the festival are the responsibility of their accompanying parent/guardian at all times.
