Newnham Park Estate, Plympton, Devon, PL75BN

For 2020 we will be opening a new Dedicated Performance Venue for Children with Stage, Full Production and Line Up

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.

We have an amazing Children’s Area with activities for all ages (even the Big Kids among us) everything from a DJ Academy and Pedal Powered Pottery Studio to Art Classes or The Media Team and loads more, take a look below at some of the things we have going on.

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.

We run a Junior Media Team at The Festival with the opportunity to tour the site with our on-site press teams, interview performers and learn the Tricks of the Trade with the latest equipment. So if we have any Young “Tubers” there’s plenty to keep them occupied for the weekend.

Check out the short vid below the that the Team put together at the 2019 Festival, some of their shots even made it into the final Festival Video.

There is a rich cultural history of circus in Festivals and Flotsam has a good knowledge of Fools and Jesters throughout the ages as well as the history of all the skills he teaches.

Providing circus skills workshop suitable for all ages.  All instructors have many years of experience teaching circus skills and we can provide instruction in:

Juggling – with balls, clubs, rings and scarves

Diabolo – Devil Stick – Poi – Hula Hoop – Pedal-Go – Spinning Staff – Spinning Plates – Skipping – Chinese Ribbon

It gives us great pleasure to welcome Naomi and her Crew from Airfish back to Love Summer Festival. 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!

Flying Lessons are short as it requires great strength … but 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.

our wonderful on-site mobile zoo the Animal HQ – there are some great animals to meet in here and all under the expert care of ex zoo keeper Simon and his team

We LOVE Hayley and her Little Secret Craft Studio, it POPS UP in the middle of our Arena in an Afternoon and the Creativity that flows out of people when they are happy and relaxed and have a little encouragement and help if needed is phenominominominal!!!!!!

THERE IS SOMETHING VERY RELAXING ABOUT PAINTING IN THE MIDDLE OF A FESTIVAL FOR THE AFTERNOON, YOU WILL NEED TO HIT THE “BRIGHT COLOURS” BOX!

Amazing Graffiti Workshops, run by Yannis Nicolaou our own Resident Scruffy Vandal. 

You will find Yannis in the Children’s Fields most days and his work is all over the Festival.
