Family Zone

What is the Family Zone?

The Family Zone is perfect for anyone with youngsters, particularly children aged 8 and under. Taking place inside and around our brightly coloured circus tent, you’ll find high quality Christian entertainers performing throughout the day. 

There’ll be something to help keep your youngsters entertained ALL day! Here’s a sneak peak at the schedule for families on the day:

*Children must remain under the supervision of their carers at all times at Together Festival and should not be left alone in any of the zones.

Family Zone Performers

Lindsay Brown – Sketchboard Stories

Lindsay comes from Dudley & loves telling Bible stories using sketchboard and paints! It’s engaging and so much fun. She’ll be telling the story of a selfish little guy who met Jesus. Come and see the story unfold!

OM UK’s Kids ‘n’ Things

Kid’s ‘N’ Things offers a variety of events for schools and churches. Our creative programmes combine puppets, drama, music, conjuring and much more to present the Christian message to children in an appropriate, fun and entertaining way.

Mark Harrington – Magician

By day he’s an education adviser for church schools, but by evenings and weekends he’s a gifted Christian magician and all age communicator. His shows and services aim to bring God’s word to life for all ages. He lives in Wolverhampton and worships at St Jude’s Church.

Phil Crisp – Juggling & Fun

Phil has been helping churches and Christian charities to present the truth of the Christian message in engaging and entertaining ways, both locally and internationally, for over 25 years. His shows involve juggling, magic and mayhem. Phil and his family are members of Springs Church in Gornal.

Paul & Twist – Puppet Show

Join us in the Family Zone and watch the shows at different times all afternoon. Have fun with a little character called Twist (as seen on TBNUK), who is often seen with Paul Willmott. Paul and Twist often visit primary schools and churches in and around the Black Country.

*Children must remain under the supervision of their carers at all times at Together Festival and should not be left alone in any of the zones.
