Heading to Springfest with the kids? There are loads of activities for all the family and some special catering just for children. Adults can sit aside while your little ones get involved with cooking as award-winning entertainment venue, The Experience, deliver fun kids cup cake and biscuit decorating sessions in the children’s tent.

A VIP guest, the Easter Bunny, will be making appearances throughout the festival, and kids can take part in the Spring Letter Hunt. But that's not all as there's lots more free entertainment.

Remember, with our Kids Go Free ticket, up to two children travel free with each adult – making it a great value family day out.

The Bar

We like a wee dram as much as the next person, but there’s so much more to Scotland than just whisky. Whether you prefer beer or cider, wine or spirits, there’s plenty to wet your whistle at the Bar area. Each year it’s filled to the brim with tipples to delight even the most discerning of tastes, and this year is no exception. Expect some of the best Scottish producers to showcase what Scotland has to offer and help quench your thirst.
