The event is fancy dress with the theme ‘festival’. For inspiration, think wellies, ponchos, flowers in your hair and band T-shirts.

Fashion lovers can also enter the fancy dress competition, and get into the spirit with festival-themed face-paint.

Programmes Manager for darts, Hayley Beecher, said: “We’re excited to open our building to all families and host our very first #PointFest this year. We want families to come along and experience something new together, the best kind of family day out with live music and drop in workshops.”

The free festival is open to all and inclusive, with all families welcome. The Point has full disabled access including a changing place facility. There will also be chill out zones available throughout the building on the day for anyone who would like a quiet, calm place to relax in.
