Nipperbout offers bespoke, family-friendly, children's areas tailored to your budget and designed to enthral children and keep families at your event.
We provide an “all under one roof” option, bringing together the traditional children’s festival field elements such as circus skills, craft workshops and entertainers with the more modern and technical stuff - air hockey, remote control car racing and computer games.
If budget allows, we can bring in a Short Stay Crèche for little ones and for teenagers; zip wires, climbing walls, mini zoo, science experiments, full circus and a myriad of inflatables!
We have a wide range of performers and can provide educational children's shows - also suitable for schools.
Our USP is our ability to combine creative entertainment with robust care and safeguarding procedures.
We can provide Festival & Fun Day Fields also outside the UK. Find out more about our international service
Festival Go-er’s enjoy events more if their children are well catered for. A Nipperbout children's field is a haven from the bustle of the main event where parents and children can relax, play together, learn new skills and reconnect. Nipperbout is often the most popular area of the event!
Nipperbout is the UK’s leading Ofsted registered and inspected childcare provider and has been delivering first class children's field activities for more than thirty years. We have won Gold and Bronze awards for "Best Festival Support Service" in The Festival Supplier Awards 2016 & 2017.
Nipperbout offer three levels of festival childcare: Silver, Gold and Platinum packages are available with one, two or three day options. Alternatively, give us a budget and a wish list and we will customize to suit your needs!
Our Lost Child Points are invaluable at busy festivals for handling a distressing situation, professionally and swiftly.
This can be the most demanding age group, requiring undivided attention. We offer a welcome respite for parents and little ones where they can play safely and join in with the games and activities provided by our Purple People. Parents must remain close by to supervise.
Fun days, Country Shows, airports, train stations, shopping centres and festivals can become both exhausting and tedious for Under 5's. A short time to let of steam, draw a picture or relax with a book, will give little ones second wind and allow parents more time to explore and enjoy your event.
Our expertise with this age group means we can recognise exactly what each individual needs and adapt the activities and games accordingly. Parents can relax and de-stress nearby whilst our Purple People take the strain!
The Nipperzone is a unique concept, designed as a result of our many years of success with unusual and imaginative topics. It includes an eclectic mix of physical skill tests, accuracy and co-ordination exercises together with good old-fashioned fairground games, all designed by our own craftsmen. Usually part of our Fun days and Festival Fields, it can also stand alone at any type of event.
Older children will enjoy these independent mental and physical challenges that offer a strong sense of achievement.
Children are challenged and entertained using our outdoor games portfolio, which is second-to-none!
Children love learning new skills! Our wide variety of workshops can be integrated into many of our childcare solutions, or used to provide entertainment for children at an otherwise adult orientated event such as an exhibition or Country show.
They provide an opportunity for children to learn a specific activity or skill from one of our talented Purple People. There is a vast choice of topics and they can be themed according to your event.
Parents can rest assured that their children are having fun in safe hands. Your event will be a successful family affair with both children and parents excited to come back next time.
With over 250 team members registered with us in different regions, we have a huge number of highly talented Purple People who love to share their skills such as photography, film making, coding, science, drumming, magic, karate and of course the usual crafts, drama, dance and music.
When something special is called for, a magic show, a fire-eater, a street dance expert or a circus skills maestro, an artistic face-painter or an exotic animal handler, we can guarantee to provide high quality entertainers who will delight and amaze.
Young people love the excitement of fun that’s a little bit 'out of the ordinary' and so do the parents, who will enjoy watching Nipperbout entertainers perform and look forward to coming back next time.
As an Ofsted registered childcare provider, we ensure all our entertainers are DBS checked and have a commitment to safeguarding children.
Over the last thirty years we have worked with some of the finest children’s entertainers in the business with a huge range of skills. We can bring the theme of your event alive with something new and different!
Nipperbout deliver high quality fun, with imaginative and interactive activities that parents and their carers remember long after the events!
