Children Get Festive In The Park

Children will be well catered-for at this year’s Godiva Festival with a special festival all of their own.

The annual Children’s Festival has moved from its regular home at Coundon Court School to join forces with the main event in the Memorial park.

Aimed at the under-11s, it gives youngsters an opportunity to take part in festival arts from all over the world.

Activities include Maori face-painting, mask and garland-making, story telling, jewellery, lanterns, banners and hand-painting.

There will be a number of zones aimed at children of different ages, including the Tiddler Zone for tots aged under four, which create activities with a seaside-theme.

The Games Zone will give youngsters the chance to try traditional games from all over the world, like hopscotch and skipping, while the Body Zone will let children understand how the body works.

The event, organised by Community Education West, is not a creche but will provide an extra attraction for the Godiva Festival.

Pete Walters, of Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions, said activities for children had been lacking in previous years.

He said:

“Apart from the fairground rides there hasn’t been much specifically for children.

“This will make a big difference, and we are hoping that it will attract a lot more families to come along.”
