While we’re not trudging around a damp pasture we can remember the smiles, the wonder, the awe.
The performers that come together to cast the magical spell that weaves itelf into the fabric of the field.
It’s that time of year when we would be gathered together in a Somerset field to dream up and live the Kidzfield magic. As this year we are taking a break, we’d like to share some magic from our archive to remind us all of how amazing the Kidzfield can be.
There’s no Glastonbury Festival this year but the Kidzfield magic continues. We’re all out there gathering energy for 2013 and we’re going to present some gems from our archive over the summer to remind you of the magic we make. We always want to inspire, delight and nurture the seeds of inspiration in children of all ages! Over the summer we’ll replay some of our past magic and we send out love and peace to everyone that has helped to make the Kidzfield at Glastonbury such a special place.
We are very happy to announce that, thanks to various people’s hard work making T-shirts, donations from the cafe and the generosity of Aggreko, we have been able to donate £700 to the charity SOS Children’s Villages.
Their vision is “a loving home for every child” and we think their approach is the best for children and child sponsors alike. They have provided a new family and home for more than 78,000 children in 518 unique Children’s Villages in 125 countries. Their supporters also help a million children and their families through our programmes in the surrounding communities.
SOS Children’s Villages use 100% of the money they receive helping children. When you make a donation to them you can ask for the money to be used in a particular way. We’ve asked for the money to be used to help orphans in Tibet.
Along with the beneficiaries of proceeds from Glastonbury Festival – Greenpeace, Water Aid & Oxfam & numerous other charities, the Kidz Field tries to hire and promote as many charities and NGO’s as possible, that work with children.
Once again, we’d like to thank everybody who made it the best Kidz Field ever.
Well, the dust has settled and we’ve finally washed the Glastonbury mud off and we’re reviewing the mountain of photos and videos that we have of the 2011 Kidz Field. There are thousands of photos and hundreds of videos and it will take some time to sort through it all. We’ll keep adding stuff as we go along so please check in regularly.

Every year we welcome new friends to the Kidz Field family and this year was no exception. Among the new faces in the field this year were two very special people and their fantastic creation. Michael Da Souza and Genevieve Webster are the creators of Rastamouse and they hosted story telling sessions with us each day this year.
On meeting and chatting with Michael and Genevieve it became clear that we had shared attitudes and ideals and that they understood completely what the Kidz Field is all about. Their stories celebrate diversity, embrace inclusivity and have humour, understanding and intelligence in them. The CBeeBies version of Rastamouse is a massive hit with kidz of all ages and it’s the warmth, inventiveness and great story telling that make it so popular.
It was such a pleasure to meet a couple who are so committed to good values and creative fun. Their contribution to the field was fantastic and their endorsement of and contribution to our Kidz Field magical experience was inspiring. In the current climate of austerity and suspicion in the wider world it’s so important that we feed our kidz a diet of tolerance, understanding and a love of the new, different and interesting. Enlightened kidz grow into informed and caring adults and, their energy and enthusiasm, will help us change the way we live and the way society works. We do everything we can to encourage positive attitudes and to create experiences of wonder and awe in the kidz that come to the field. Michael and Genevieve saw this and ‘got it’, they dived in, joined in to the fullest and took pleasure and brought joy. This is the real spirit of the Kidz Field and we celebrate it’s power.Many people were happy to pose for photos, including Mr Glastonbury himself, Michael Eavis!
Thank you Michael and Genevieve for your part in making Kidz Fiedl 2011 the best one ever!
After irie talks with Da Crew and President Wensley Dale too, Michael agrees, to supply the cheese, to get Rasta Mouse jammin’ for you.
Here’s a lovely selection of photos from Noona’s Puppet Stew’s Workshops in the Make & Do Tent in 2011. She’s hosted the pics on her own site so please follow the link below to see this lovely set of pics.
