Festival of Speed

THE Family Festival

Motorsport has always been a family affair and we strive to keep it that with children 12 and under admitted free of charge.

Family-friendly highlights


Located between The Grid and the Startline Bridge, the Thakeham Family Area offers a variety of activities to delight our younger visitors – and gives parents the opportunity to take a breather away from the Festival. Kids can try their hand at Scalextric, tot cars, face painting and legendary Thakeham digggers – all back by popular demand, plus Thakeham’s all-new den-building activity for children of all ages. There’s also a hillclimb viewing terrace next door to the area, so you won’t miss any of the action taking place on the Hill.


Plus, download the Thakeham Treasure Hunt map below, ideal for families attending the event this summer.

Amaze, inspire, share

The Festival of Speed is an incredible spectacle, the memories of which will stay with you forever. From an all-electric sports car raging up the hill to a Dakar drift lorry getting fully sideways, every inch of the Festival is brimming with the best of the automotive world.





We've got kids, we've got granddad here, mum and dad... It's the best event in the world and I don't know who's second, but it's a long, long way behind.
