Welcome to the home of the Gloworm Festival. A brilliant 2 day event especially created for humans and their little people.

2016 in Nottinghamshire was the launch of the brand new family friendly festival that brings music, arts, theatre and entertainment to the heart of the East Midlands.

The Gloworm festival is aimed at families with children of all ages. It’s a festival that will inspire your imaginations and invite you to play in a warm, friendly and creative environment.

Everything other than food and drink stalls, facepainting and fairground 'side-shows' (hook-a-duck, coconut shy etc) is covered by the cost of your ticket. The fairground rides are free up until 5pm, after this a small charge will be applicable.

This year the Festival was nominated for 4 awards in 'The UK Festival Awards'
