Kidsyard - The Beatyard |


Welcome to Kidsyard!

Kidsyard is our dedicated family friendly area within the Beatyard festival. It will be mainly indoor [ in the Terminal building] and covered, but we’ll have some elements outdoors too. We will have supervised fun, frolics and festivities for the young cadets running from 12-7pm both days. We’ll also have food, drinks, snacks & treats on hand near by (and coffee for parents), as well as baby changing facilities and accessible toilets in the terminal building (not portaloos).

 For the full Beatyard lineup check here, and general info is here. Any questions, send us an email

*Children attending workshops must be supervised at all times*

Kidsyard Program



Recreate family entertainment

Weaving the Waves- ReCreate will install a large scale weave area inviting children to join in creating beautiful weave structures using a variety of yarns, fabrics and fibres inspired by the colours and patterns from the underwater world.

No Mess Paint- ReCreate will bring their no mess paint window art to Beatyard. Children can play with paint, make patterns and let their fingers dance in the colours without making any mess!!

Collaging a Seascape- Children at Beatyard will be able to design a wall sized seascape with crazy fish, deserted Islands and maybe even a pirate!!

Construction Corner- Come and make a sea creature, an underwater animal or a tropical fish at our construction corner. Using lots of fun and creative reuse materials, let your imagination go wild!

Giant Shark Maze- climb through our giant shark mouths and help us colour them in. Watch out for their sharp teeth and be sure they don’t bite!
