The History of The Kidzfield

The first children’s area at Glastonbury Festival was organised by Arabella Churchill, she then went on to create the charity Children’s World. Children have always attended the festival for free and when Arabella began the festival was really just one site, not like today’s many areas multiplicity.

Later, a special area was created, in The Pyramid Field, then it was moved to Goose Hall field and it then ultimately arrived at it’s current location, which is The Nut Ground on old maps. This was the first manifestation of The Kidzfield, known then as the Children’s Area.

The first slide at the site of the current castle. Quite rudimentary, by today’s standards, and quite a hard landing!

After some time passed and with the hard work of ‘Mick The Chippy’ the first castle was begun.
