Children’s Fun at Love Summer Festival

©James_Hitchcock_WEB-7481

Love Summer is a Festival made for Family , if the children are happy…. Everybody’s happy! Together with our full program of Entertainers, Magicians, Jesters and General Fools we look to provide activities where all children can learn new skills whilst having fun.

Activities flyer - FINAL HALF

pottery

The Pottery is a little bit special… Yes!… We have an on-site Pottery Studio!! Complete with Pedal Powered Potters Wheels (try and say that after a few ciders) and our Resident Master Potter Mansour 

This truly is an amazing space and Mansour is one of the most fun people we have ever met, his team will give you a warm welcome and there’s never a dull moment when Manz is involved!

The Pottery is open pretty much all the time and you can just pop in but the wheels get very busy at peak times and if pottery is your big thing you can book some undivided attention from The Manz himself.

It gives us great pleasure to welcome Naomi and her Crew from Airfish back to Love Summer Festival 2018. Quite frankly we wouldn’t trust anyone else to deliver this service for us. Please remember many do this but Naomi, Airfish & all Associated are PROPER! Performers and come fully Trained and Insured. Be assured you are safe in their hands 🙂 

Airfish will be bringing lots of performers, workshops & performances to Love Summer on Saturday 11th August so you will be given every opportunity to RUN AWAY AND JOIN THE CIRCUS!!

Flying Lessons are short as it requires great strength and you may be able to have a quick go in quiet times but this is one activity we must make a nominal charge for. The running costs for the Safety, Equipment, Insurance,etc….. are really high, anyway “if you want the best”… believe me its well worth it, we’ve all been on a Big Wheel or Roller-coaster but have you Flown The Trapeze.

This activity is limited to Under 18’s and really just for teenagers. We have some amazing DJ’s and Sound Systems at Love Summer and they aren’t being used in a morning. So there’s no reason why our young DJ’s from beginner through to those already “playing out” to pick up some skills from our Master Craftsmen DJ Che.

We have some Brilliant DJ’s lined up to help across all the venues and sessions will be run every morning.

animal-hq

We loved the Animal HQ and Simon’s knowledge of animals is amazing. Animal Activities do some great work using animals for therapy and relaxation…. Still not sure about that spider though!

A great example of a Band that really delivered for us in 2017 is Suburban Symphony, they made a 600 round mile trip to make their debut in the Devon fields at Love Summer Festival 17. Tony Edwards ex front man of Torquay band Pipeline brought his new band Giz,Sam,Tom and Lewis down from there Lancashire base to play on the SuperSonics main stage on Saturday night. The Penultimate band on the bill took to the stage at 10pm and did not disappoint. Their support who traveled with the band to the festival were leading the charge at the front, even in the sound check the band and crowd were bouncing off each other. Local super fan Gladys was overcome with emotion and invaded the stage, it most of took her back to her Bay City Rollers days. The 40 minute set seemed to be over very quickly finishing up with their new release ‘Stepping Stones’ out now on Hilltown records #upthesymphony We really cannot thank you enough, what a gig!. Here’s a few “snaps” our Photographer James Hitchcock took.

If you want to show your support for Live Music and show support for Real Live Musicians why not download their latest track Stepping Stones Here we did

Love Summer Festival 2017 - Sitting Pretty on the Supersonics Stage

Love Summer Festival 2017 – Sitting Pretty   on the Supersonics Stage

Sitting Pretty are Plymouth’s finest Original Indie/Rock Band. Founded in January 2014.
After only a few months of writing and rehearsing, Sitting Pretty were offered their debut Live Gig in April 2014.. Supporting Ocean Colour Scene and Paul Weller Guitarist, Steve Cradock, as part of his Solo Tour .. Followed promptly by a handful of Festival appearances across The South West, Including The Cider Festival at Plymouth’s Largest Music Venue, Plymouth Pavilions, all with amazing feedback. 2014 was wrapped up perfectly, by supporting John Power (Cast/The La’s) as part of his acoustic tour.
2015 seen Sitting Pretty become a regular fixture on the local music scene, a great achievement for an Original Band (as the local scene is predominantly made up of cover bands). As well as returning, by request, to a number of Festivals played the previous year.
