Monstrous! A Brand New Family Festival Coming To London This July

April 26, 2018


Get excited, because there’s a brand new family festival coming to London this July, and you won’t want to miss it! Monstrous will be heading to the award-winning Printworks complex in South London on Sunday 29th July for their debut one day festival. Designed with mini festival goers (4-14 years old) in mind, this family event is going to knock their socks off and is a sure-fire way to kick off the summer holidays in style.


Think live performances, exciting experiences and so many exhilarating attractions and adventures, all housed in seven fantasy worlds! Here’s the line-up.



Monstrous! Festival





Monstrous family festival line-up


The Soccer School Zone

Chelsea FC Foundation team are joining Monstrous for the day to take your little ones for a spin round the pitch, and will be blitzing all the essential football skills with them. Everything from passing, dribbling, penalty shootouts, speed tests and more! #InFootballHeaven



The Beast

You’ve heard of The Beast right? I like to call it bouncy castle land, because it’s like being in a whole new (bouncy) world. The beast is the world’s largest inflatable obstacle course, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. Hop, skip, jump and in my case most likely, scoot on your butt, round a whopping 32 obstacles.

And when you’re all jumped out, take a load off here.



Arcade Alley

Gamers of all ages are going to go wild for this digital haven, which will house over 1,000 classic console games including the very important MineCraft, Roblox, Pokemon, Fortnite Battle Royale, retro Arcade machines, Pacman, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter. Players can get comfy on the PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, as well as having the chance to dip a toe into animation studios and Virtual Reality booths.



Prince, Princess & Unicorn Land

Did I have you at unicorn? Yep? Me too. Prepare to be swept off your feet by this enchanting Monstrous Fairy Tale land which will be buzzing with unicorns, mermaids and Disney Princess walkabout characters. Little ones can pamper themselves in dressing up and selfie zones (yes!), beauty parlours, karaoke, singalong booths and explore captivating forests and flower walls. #Excited



And once you’re all relaxed, why not head over here.



Monty’s Monstrous Disco

Get your groove on with the hottest names in kid’s entertainment, live music and performances – all hosted by Monstrous Monty. There will be giant disco balls, confetti cannons, UV face painting, lazer shows, dance competitions, talent shows, flash mobs and a very special guest appearance! Wow!! *We’ll see you on the dance floor then?

Magical Fun Fair Town

Fun seekers will love Monty’s mini Theme Park, where they will be able to ride the Dodgems and Go Carts, take a spin in the Tea Cups and enjoy Lazer Quest, the Nerf Arenas, shooting galleries and trampolines. There will also be little rides for the Mini Monsters too! But wait, there’s more. Retro Fun Fair stalls such as hammer slams and hook a duck, incredible aerial trapeze artists, funny circus acts and the all-important classic Punch & Judy show will be there to thrill and entertain the whole family. Magicians, Super Hero’s and street performers will also be roaming the Magical Fun Fair Town, so keep your eyes open for some unmissable shows.



Then, step outside and get closer to nature here.



The Big Outdoors

What’s a festival without a good dose of fresh air right? The clever people at Monstrous are transforming the landscape at Printworks to create an urban beach and a Petting Zoo zone. How cool is that?! Creative mini monsters can also get their hands busy by taking part in arts and crafts workshops throughout the day here.

And for when the very teeniest mini monsters need a rest, head over here.



Baby Garden

Designed for 4 year olds and under, the Baby Garden is a little chilled out haven and perfect pit stop to unwind with the littlest festival goers. There will be baby sensory, messy soft play, story time, ball pits and mini train rides. Parents can shake their tail feathers in the parent and baby dance classes and there will also be some special meet and greets from the biggest pre-school favourites.




So, who’s coming to Monstrous?

We are still family festival virgins. Ekk! And yes, it’s all down to me, not wanting to get my wellies dirty or use a communal shower in a field. But, problem solved with Monstrous! As they bring EVERYTHING and more to London in what’s set to be the hottest family festival this summer! There won’t be a flooded field in sight. Just family friendly tube stations, transport links and those fab London hotels if you are travelling in from a distance. We’ll be there!

    This sounds great, but I can hear our 14 year old telling that she’ll be the judge of whether or not her socks would be knocked off!!! 🙂 I’ll see what she thinks as we’re always looking for stuff to do as a family in the holidays that could be described as “cool”.

  13. Dad says:
