Karma Kids takes traditional yoga and approaches them through the eyes of a child. They tell stories, go on adventures and discover and learn endless paths that our bodies and minds can unravel from us. With children aged between 3 and 11, using games, they promote techniques that encourage and stimulate the imagination, the development of self-esteem, acceptance, positive thinking, making healthy choices and most importantly, having lots of fun!

The Science Boffins join our Kids Field line-up for 2018 and we can’t wait. They will be performing science shows throughout the festival, with the boffins doing a variety of experiments some of which will catch fire, bubble over, explode, but most importantly be fun! Visit their activity table for a whole host of other experiments, whether it’s racing to make tornadoes in bottles, looking at how an air vortex is created, or trying to test your nerve against their steady hand game, the Boffins will wow everyone through science.
