'Great event to get children engaged with outdoors'
EVEN though winter is drawing closer, there is still time to get into that festival fever ... even if you're a little too young for the usual major events.
In true festival style, no matter what the weather, Glastonbabies' Music Festival will go ahead on Saturday, October 13, from 1pm to 4pm.
The fun-filled afternoon will celebrate West Marsh Children's Centre tenth birthday and will take place behind Macaulay Primary School field – so, if it's wet, make sure you wear wellies and suitable clothing.
The event is aimed at the whole family and will include a collection of foot-stomping bands including Moon Fruit Creative, Garlic Bread, Sambalada, Signhills Junior Choir and the Bosses Friend.

Sarah Wagstaff, organiser and community play development worker, said: "This is an event for the whole family.
"I wanted a festival aimed at everyone and it will be a really family friendly festival.
"There will be live music, which is sure to get the little kids up and dancing – as well as interacting with other children.
"I was inspired from other outdoor events, such as Picnic In The Park."
Sarah said she held the event last year, but on a smaller scale, and because of its success she decided to put it on again – this year taking it outdoors.
She said: "There will be loads of events going on, such as a drumming workshop, healing tents and, of course, a variety of play equipment for children, such as tunnels and tents as well as giant dominos."
And, if you feel a bit peckish after all that fresh air, there will be a hog roast, burgers and other refreshments.
Beth Robinson, from Grimsby, mother of five-year-old Morgan, said: "I will definitely be going to the event
"I can't wait to try out the drumming workshop and I'm sure Morgan will love it, too.
"It's a great event to get children engaged with the outdoors and enjoying the fresh air whilst socialising.
"Even if it's raining we will still attend, with our wellies and rain coats."
Admission is 50p and tickets are available from the Children's Centre, Macaulay Street.
