There are an absolute mountain of family friendly festivals in the UK in 2020. They are spread across the country and, although they are concentrated in the summer holidays, there are plenty in the spring and autumn too.
Most festivals in 2020 are keen to promote their climate change awareness and sustainability, with a fair number charging a carbon offset and encouraging/organising travel by public transport.
It is great that there is so much choice, and to help you make the best choice, we have summarised the events below as a map and a list.
To allow a comparison between festivals, we have also included an indication of the cost of tickets for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The prices shown assume you camp for the entire festival and doesn't include any additional cost that may be charged for parking/campervans etc. All events have different pricing structures, especially when it comes to kids' tickets so the price we have quoted assumes children that are older than babies but not yet teens.
Have fun searching for your perfect festival in 2020!
