We have an exciting new children’s area for 2018 ‘Cub Corner’ devoted to entertaining and educating the youngsters. The event will be jam-packed with activities, performances, arts and crafts and much more for the young’uns on July 21-22nd July at Chapel Gate, Christchurch.

Children are invited to come along with their parents and grandparents to join in the fun at Taste of the South with an assortment of activities, such as story-telling, games, face painting and even the chance to grow their own plant to take home with them. Educating and teaching the cubs is set to be an important factor of the new area, introducing them to the world of food, where it comes from and giving them a chance to learn about all things South.

Entry to the festival is FREE for all children under 12 and is a perfect opportunity to keep the kids entertained as they kick start the summer holidays.

Says Jackie Phillipson, Organiser of Taste of the South, “As the festival returns to Dorset this year, there will be something for everyone from live music from, delicious local food and drink, chef demonstrations and tastings, the Zen Den health and wellbeing area to endless fun in the Cub Corner, we want to feature a diverse variety so that whatever the age, people will have an amazing weekend!

We will also be promoting education in the Cub Corner, giving children the chance to learn about their food, the environment and take part in educational activities such as reading, creating arts and craft and generally having fun.”
