Now in its ninth year, Just So Festival, an annual festival for children and their families, returned to Rode Hall in Cheshire earlier this month. It combines theatre, live music, craft, clowning, storytelling, dance, food, film and magic to create a wonderful celebration of childhood and imagination.

Just So is organised by Wild Rumpus who produce extraordinary worlds, most often in wild natural landscapes, and invite families to step inside and help to create incredible stories and moments of wonder. Alongside producing large-scale events, they work with performers, producers and programmers to shape a cultural environment where excellent outdoor work for families thrives.
