Family music festival for adults and children


Welcome to the Baby Band Music Festival – where the name may suggest baby steps, but the experience is nothing short of a giant leap into the world of fantastic music for all ages! Born out of the success of our renowned Baby Band music classes and gigs, this festival is all about sharing the joy of music with family and friends.


At the heart of Baby Band is the belief that music is for everyone, regardless of age. Our mission is to introduce the magic of live music to children from the earliest age possible and create moments where families can bond over the joy of a shared beat. This isn't your typical nursery rhyme affair – it's a musical extravaganza featuring the best live bands that will have everyone, from toddlers to grandparents, tapping their feet.


This summer, our festival returns to the historic Lotherton Hall for a second year, building on the success of our event in 2023. Join us on Sun 21 July 2024 for an experience that transcends generations – proper music, great bands, and absolutely no nursery rhymes. The Baby Band Music Festival is your passport to a summer day filled with the sweet sound of family fun, live music and unforgettable memories. See you there!

Not just for babies...

proper music, great bands, no nursery rhymes.

Tiered tickets:

We are tiering the price of tickets to reward you for buying your tickets early. The closer we get to the event, the higher the price. We're now in tier 3, you can still make savings if you buy now rather than on the day.
