Festival on the Field

Harpenden’s family friendly festival raising funds for local schools

We are delighted to sponsor this fantastic festival, which is a volunteer-run fund-raising event, organised by the parents’ organisations of Sir John Lawes School and Manland Primary School in Harpenden. The Festival runs every other year and to date, has raised over £90,000 for both schools!

There is live music for all the family plus great food and drinks. The Doors Open at 12.00 noon and the show is kicked off with school performers at 1230. Other acts start at 1330. Headlining this year are Massaoke, back by popular demand after taking the Festival by storm in 2018.

To give you some ‘childfree time’, we are offering bookable slots for your children to attend our own crèche or ‘mini festival’. Our crèche is for babies from 3 months old to 3 year olds and is bookable up to a maximum of 2 hours. You can book multiple sessions but will need to leave an hour in between. Our mini festival is for 4-11 year olds and runs for 1.5 hours and features a silent disco, face painting / tattoos, colouring, circus skills & games tent. Again, you are welcome to book multiple sessions.

Crèche charges £6 per child an hour | Mini festival £10 per child, per session. Please book by clicking below.

What our community says

S and N had such a brilliant time last week. S was a bit hesitant to go as she had been home for several months, N was just going with the flo. When i picked them up on Wednesday they were both glowing. Nos first words were ‘mummy that was the best camp ever!”. S said she had a wonderful time to and wanted to come back the next day. They absolutely loved it. I hope to book some more (if you have availability). You and your team certainly do an amazing job. Thank you.

I just wanted to say the kids said the ‘club was epic today, even better than it normally is’. They loved the small groups and wearing t-shirts and want to come everyday! – Esther

Our children have always enjoyed Fizzbugs, but this summer with the tents and focus on outdoor play has been brilliant – thank you for making such a huge effort, our girls LOVED it! Matt Martel

I was very impressed in the way in which Kate and the team handled the holiday club during these unprecedented times. A real testament to how a community can pull together to help each other. Well done team Fizz bugs! Anisha Koshal

Thomas adored everyday at FizzBug’s, he didn’t tell me much after the day but was so happy and just so excited to return every other day. Really appreciated the convince of drop off when it was raining , you waited at gate so we didn’t have to unload all our children. (twins and a 2yr old) Siobhan Pollard

This club was a godsend and helped me get on with work knowing my son was having a great time and well looked after! Thank you! Carolyn McKay

I was so grateful that Fizzbug was running over the summer and we really appreciated all the hard work that had gone into the social distancing and bubbles. My daughters really loved Fizzbug and enjoyed the variety of activities and meeting new children. Samantha Sawyer

Fizzbugs put on an amazing set up this year under very challenging circumstances. They excelled themselves with the look and feel of the camp making it look like a mini festival. I rather fancied going myself! Thanks so much to all of you for making the summer months easier to work whilst keeping the children entertained and doing something different Vicky Ellis

Amazing organisational skills of the crew at Fizzbugs meant my son had a great time despite the current restrictions in place. It’s also great to see such efforts being made to use sustainable products. Melanie McWilliams

The camp meant very happy children and very happy parents. Great effort made by the team to make the camp happen, and it was excellent! Inna Banks
