CLAREFEST 2023 - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Updated: May 15, 2023



WHAT IS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?


CLAREFEST is a fun family day of music and entertainment exclusively for the families of the school. There will be awesome bands playing TUUUUNES, inflatable games, face painting, dance workshops, craft workshops, circus skills, festival merchandise, sweets and ice cream!


WHO CAN ATTEND?


For health and safety, we have limited tickets available and therefore they are exclusively for purchase by the immediate families of pupils at the school only.


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW:


- Buy your ENTRANCE TICKETS from our website from 8pm on 18th April. Adult (18+) tickets are £8, children's (3-17) tickets are £2. Under 3s are free and do not require a ticket.

Ticket numbers are limited and we do expect to sell out so buy early to avoid disappointment. If your family is entitled to Free School Meals please claim your complimentary tickets through Mrs Roberts by 1st May.


- VOLUNTEER your time to help make it a success. Slots available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The more volunteers we have the more fun everyone can have! Please add your name to this form. Even 30 minutes on the day itself will make a difference. Please note volunteers must hold a valid entrance ticket.


WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW?


TOKENS

As last year, entertainment stalls will be operated using a token system (they will not accept cash or card payments). 1 token can be purchased for £1. Each stall will be marked with how many tokens you will need to use e.g. 1 token for a 5 minute jump on a bouncy castle. We will publish the full list nearer the time.


You can purchase Tokens both in advance, from our "Get Ready for Clarefest" sales in the school playground during pick up the week before the event, and on the day (from the token stall near the entrance gate).


Card Payments will be accepted at the Bar, BBQ and Token Stalls. The use of cash is being discouraged so please support us making this a cashless event.


DANCE WORKSHOPS:

Do4Kidz Danceworks are returning with their ever popular dance workshops culminating with a performance at the festival at 5pm. Children will learn a dance routine during their workshop and then come together to perform it at 5pm.


Workshop times are:

  • Years 2-6: at 2.45pm - 3.15pm or 4.15pm - 4.45pm, £6 per child.

  • Pre-schoolers - Year 1: Boogie Tots at 3.30pm - 4pm (under 5s will need adult supervision), £5 per child.
