Come along to the Octagon on Fri 27 - Sun 29 August for a fun filled weekend of FREE family activities.

From storytelling in the main auditorium to cake decorating in our Kitchen and Bar; funky beats at our Family Disco and bubbles on the street, there’s something for everyone.

All activities are free but must be booked in advance.


Boogie Wonderland - Family Disco 
Pop on your dancing shoes and head to our Family Disco where dad dancing is positively encouraged! This free, fun session will get mums, dads and grandparents strutting their stuff alongside the kids in our air conditioned, glamourous studio. You can follow along and learn the moves with our fabulous dance artist, or freestyle your own way. (limited spaces specific timeslots must be booked).

Storytelling - Crocodile Tales
Never Smile at a Crocodile! Join us throughout the day for interactive storytelling and crafts. Told by a professional actor in our main auditorium, we’ll be telling deliciously crunchy stories with a bite.

Booking information
All our Family Festival activities are free but we are asking families to book a slot for everyone who is visiting. You’ll be given a wristband for each family member when you arrive which will enable you to stay for up to 2 and a half hours, with various activities happening at different times for you to enjoy.

Family Disco slots are running at a limited capacity so you will need to book your place for one of these sessions when you book your wristband - you will have this option in the booking process.
