The Summer Festival is the perfect way to celebrate the beautiful summer days, and there’s lots of Free Range Fun for you to enjoy while you’re here with us too.
Taking place from 21st July to 31st August 2023, you can expect a mix of complimentary and paid family activities to enjoy during your summer visit that the whole family can join in with!
Elements of Summer Festival
The Summer Festival will be a celebration of the elements that make up the natural world - Earth, Fire, Air, and Water. All activities and entertainment will be inspired by the elements in different ways and will come together to form an inspiring summer experience!
Activities and Entertainment
Element One: E A R T H
All life springs and thrives from the earth, it’s the foundation of life itself. It provides us with the grounding we all need, as well as feeding us for the chance to thrive. Our earth activities will let you wander into the wild and embrace the beauty of nature. As well as rebalancing mind and body, you'll be able to let loose and embrace the outdoors.
Housed inside the dome is a vibrant world of activity celebrating (or bringing to the fore) your inner Wild Child. With splashes of colour, workshops, activities, and entertainment – it’s time to #beWILDer! The BeWILDer spirit will be flowing through the Dome with excitement and energy! Expect Live Music, pop-up entertainment and of course our summer spectacular show, HENGE.
Samba Drumming Workshop
Master the sounds of the elements and move to the beat of your own drum!
Our Samba Specialists are on hand to teach you how to find the rhythm and play along to the beats of the elements.
Learn the tempos of the earth, air, fire and water before performing in a Bluestone samba parade!
Fire represents creation, destruction, and transformation. Our fire activities will be focusing on creativity, passion, excitement, and a chance to spark a fire inside everyone. Whether that's feasting at Camp Smokey, learning to build your own fire at our bush-craft sessions or watching our live musicians.
Keep an eye out for the legendary dragon roaming Bluestone throughout Summer Festival. The red drake will be making it's way round resort and even into Pembrokeshire, so keep your eyes peeled for anything suspiciously scaly!
As the evenings draw in, the Dragon will enter the Serendome, accompanied by fire-spinners and slap-skin drummers, to kick off the festivities and fun! The Dragon will parade around the dome, with music and excitement filing the air. The Bluestone Band will play you in as you take part in festival activities at the Dragons Breath Party!
Element Three: W A T E R
We have a powerful connection to water, both physically and emotionally. Our Water activities are inspired by the many forms of water in our lives from calming lakes to invigorating oceans. There is plenty to do be it at our very own Bluestone Lake, in the Blue lagoon or out on one of our Adventure days.
We'll have our super Summer Splash taking place at the Blue Lagoon, with lots of inflata-fun to be had with challenges and obstacles to overcome. With our Aqua Climb, Volleyball, Water Cannons and more, our Summer Splash at the Blue Lagoon is an aqua-mazing good time!
There'll also be the chance to get on the water down at the Bluestone Lake. Kayaking, Paddleboarding and Raft Building are just some of the activities on offer. Perfect for building confidence or honing skills before setting out into Pembrokeshire on one of our Adventure days!
The element that connects us all, the air is the breath of life! Air symbolises the mind, wisdom, and soul, and our activities will be inspired to uplift and celebrate the freedom it gives us. Whether that’s physically flying through the trees, or harnessing the power of the air to reach further than ever before.
Brave the heights of the Skywalk and the Skywalk-Mini at the Serendome!
We can't wait for all the amazing summer fun we are going to have! Don't want to miss out? Book your break and activities now and you can get ready to join us for Summer Festival fun!
It's not just at Bluestone you can appreciate the wonder of nature! Pembrokeshire is an unspoiled paradise where you can escape and enjoy land, coast, and sea - and summer is the perfect time to get out and explore! Here's some inspiration for your break.
