Nozstock The Hidden Valley – the ultimate family festival

February 10, 2020

This is a featured article

Nozstock is one of the UK’s longest-running festivals, entering its 22nd year this summer. It’s family-run, very much home-made and proudly independent on a beautiful working farm set upon rolling hills in Herefordshire.

The Nosworthy family continue to curate one of the UK’s finest emporiums of music, arts, food and drink, with a huge focus on keeping all kids and families entertained in the Little Wonderland Kids Area.

Nozstock The Hidden Valley

It’s a gloriously eccentric, wildly imaginative and decadently off-kilter brain-shift with incredible detail at every turn, a small festival with a very big heart which continues to chart its own path, far away from commercialisation and following the flock. Nozstock is a transcendental experience which creates its own sense of unity and escapism from the real world for a few precious days.

The last two decades of magic set on Rowden Paddocks has created a sublime adventure for all the ages, and once it more will enchant, inspire and illuminate all who attend in July as one of the UK’s most loved intimate festivals.

What do families think of the Nozstock The Hidden Valley festival?

Nozstock is one of the only festivals where I don’t feel like I am putting my hand in my pocket at all times. The kid’s craft area in Little Wonderland has a huge timetable of free activities all weekend and the family camping area really caters for the kids with child-sized toilets and even a play area. My girls absolutely love it and so do we.’ – Tired Mummy of Two

Nozstock has been designed by a family from a family point of view so everything a family would want has been thought about. Changing stations for kids with free nappies, smaller toilets for littler bums, lots of non-bank-breaking entertainment for the kiddos, a separate Family Camping area with a playground, places to pick up (for FREE) things you might need like wet wipes, suntan lotion or earplugs. It was pretty darn great on that front I have to say and the separate camping area for families was welcome. ‘ – Rock ‘n’ Roller Baby

A great family-friendly festival. Relaxed and welcoming, perfect for first-time festival-goers. If you’re going with kids make sure you take advantage of the family camping and book a slot in the quieter fields.’ – Craft With Cartwright

It’s small and welcoming – great stuff for kids- lots of arty things to do and the kids loved the circus skills. Not corporate at all- just chilled out.’ – Thimble & Twig
