MarshFest promises fun for all the family. Here’s a flavour of what entertainment is on offer this year – we’re adding to the list all the time:

Lucy Lost-it

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Lucy Lost It back to MarshFest! She entertained us brilliant a few years ago. Some of the wonderful things Lucy offers are magic shows, circus skills, and balloon modelling and she always has a rapt audience.

Graffiti specialists Graffarty is run by Steven Fitzpatrick, a professional Graffiti Artist based in Bristol who has been painting graffiti on and off since the late 1980s. He’s bringing his show on the road to MarshFest for the first time, so see his demos and spray paint your own graffiti name under his supervision (costs £10 per canvas to take home and keep).

Makery Kate

Award-winning crafter extraordinaire Makery Kate has provided her brilliantly popular hands-on craft materials, offering family-friendly projects to complete on the day.

Zumba with Jess

For the first time, we’re delighted to have Zumba with Jess on our main stage! Get up, get moving – it’s perfect for adults and kids. Jess says: “I have been teaching Zumba Fitness in and around Bath for over 15 years. It’s a great workout, both cardio and conditioning and anyone can participate, no matter how old, young , fit or unfit. You do not need dancing experience, just the ability to move and shake what your mumma gave u 😜”.
