Festival Volunteer, Wild Child Festival


Wild Child Festival is a brand new children’s festival in Dulwich, South London taking place from 17-19 August 2018. It's aim is to bring together exciting and innovative workshops, activities and performances for children and families. With an emphasis on the arts, creative play and wellbeing for 0-11 year olds and their grown-ups, Wild Child provides a fun-filled day out to entertain the whole tribe. Little ones and their grown ups will be immersed in the worlds of theatre, circus, storytelling, dance, craft and music where they can let their creativity run wild. There’s also a special Babes in the Burrow area providing sensory experiences and entertainment for mini festival-goers aged 0-3 years.
