The Great Estate is a family affair.

Food and drink for families

There are a number of food traders within the festival site that provide some family favourites such as pizzas, pastas, burgers, and seafood. For the more adventurous taste buds, there is Thai, Indian and Greek foods to try.


Children and families

The Great Estate is a very family friendly award-winning festival. We have activities for the whole family to enjoy together and create long lasting memories, as well as funfair rides and a large bouncy castle area. Please note some activities are payable directly

Children can enjoy our Victorian Sports Day, be thrilled by the Vikings and entertained by Titan the Robot who will be walking around the festival throughout the weekend.  You can also book your children in with Under The Canopy Cornwall. There’s Tie Dye workshops, so please bring along a white garment. Younger children can enjoy heuristic play and arts and crafts provided by Crafty Monkey’s which is situated in a white tent next to the bouncy castle area.

Swamp Circus also provide circus skills workshops and there are a variety of roaming children’s entertainers.


Young Persons Ticket Access

Please be aware that due to our licencing conditions (updated in 2020), persons under 18 years old are not allowed access to the festival unless accompanied by an over 21 ticket holder.

In order to enforce this, we have only made it possible to purchase a young person’s ticket (13 to 17 years old) in conjunction with an adult ticket. In order to add an individual young person’s ticket to an existing order, please message us through the contact form on the website where we can process this on a one to one basis.
