New for 2018 we have a dedicated kids’ stage, with something for all ages. Cock & Bull is the perfect festival to bring the family to. Here are a few highlights:

The Flying Seagull Project

“Do you believe in the power of play?”

The Flying Seagulls are a group of clowns and performers bringing joy and laughter to refugee camps around Europe and the world. We are very excited to invite them to Cock & Bull to entertain you, and in turn, help support their incredible work abroad.

The School of Noise

School of Noise run easy to engage with experimental music workshops. We invited them to our recent fundraiser in Waterloo and they went down an absolute storm. Don’t just take our words for it, take Jarvis Cocker’s,

“The School of Noise is one of those ideas that you just KNOW is right: bringing back a sense of wonder & accessibility to music-making. Music is organised noise & organising noise is fun! Dan Mayfield manages to communicate this fact to all those he works with. I doff my cap to him”Jarvis Cocker

(And if you have a few more minutes, you can listen to them on radio 4 here.)

The Seedlings

We welcome back ‘The Seedlings’ to host a family friendly craft tent. Suitable for children and their parents. Using fleece from the farm’s very own sheep, fabric, clay and other natural materials they’ll be offering workshops to make beautiful nature inspired crafts.

((( On Pa )))

((( On Pa ))), meaning sound wave in Japanese, is the brand new collaboration of Japanese musician and inventor ICHI and English contemporary folk artist Rachael Dadd.

The Majorette’s

Of course we are inviting the wonderful Majorette’s back to give everyone their hula hooping fix.

Living History Workshops

Join the ‘Living history workshops’ to make leather or pewter jewellery – specialising in hands-on crafts for all ages.  Workshops for children (and sometimes their adults!) throughout the festival.

This is just a quick overview of some of the workshops we have in store for you at Cock & Bull this year. Keep checking the website for more updates.
