KIDS AREA

Kids entertainer and Vegducater, Captain James Tea Cook, will be hosting the Kids Area and Cookery Classes on Saturday and Sunday

Captain ‘High 5' James Tea Cook, Ship's Cook & Rainbow Pirate of the Carob Bean says

"The theme of the Vegfest Kids area be getting yer kiddywinks to be eating more vegetables, at least 5 portions of veg a day choosing one from each colour of the rainbow. So as well as the VegfestUK smoothie bike we be having cookery workshops where we makes Rainbow sushi, pancakes, fruit kebabs, polenta pizzas and omega 3 cannon balls and the kitchen science where we finds electricity in bananas, we also has a few Pirate Fairground games. The games include Rainbow Ring Toss, 5 Veg in Bucket, Rainbow VeggieTin Can Alley, a Treasure Hunt, Rainbow Twister and a bit of Vegetable themed pirate dancing magic and story telling."

Captain James Tea Cook @JamesTeaCook

Joining Captain James Tea Cook and the Pirates of The Carob Bean is the most fun-est way to learn about vegetamabubble glue and other important vegdumacational medical necessities that keep our bodies working the way human beans' bodies were meant to. Hands on cooking workshops, kitchen science, dancing, singing, crafts and general larking about. Very noisy and at times messy. Although we do try hard to accommodate those with ASD and sensory issues it can get loud. As we are dealing with food please ensure children arrive with hands washed, hair up (if appropriate) and no bogies. Young children will need to be supervised please. Not recommended for young children if they have a fear of big fluffy parrots especially ones called ‘Pirate Potty' who does uncanny seagull impersonations. The Parrot likes kids, but he's never eaten a whole one.
