Welcoming Families to Festival
Limmud Festival is a unique family experience where you have the opportunity to learn, play, and explore together, as well as apart. The fantastic families team have already been working tirelessly to ensure that every member of your family have the best experience possible. From incredible and unique programmes every day for school aged children to the extensive families sessions every afternoon for parents and kids together, this year promises to be the most exciting and engaging year for the whole family yet. If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the lovely families chairs.
Young and Teen Limmud
Young and Teen Limmud is the Limmud programme for children and teenagers. Parents drop off their children at Young and Teen Limmud (YTL) in the morning and pick them up in the late afternoon. During the day, the children and teens learn from Limmud presenters on a variety of topics and take part in crafts, music, dance and drama sessions run by their madrichim (leaders). For Teens (school year 7+), there is an exciting programme designed to give a Limmud Festival experience uniquely catered for their interests. Every year parents and children both agree that YTL is a great experience, so come and find out for yourself! For more information on YTL, you can contact our YTL Chairs.
As in previous years our wonderful Limmud Nursery will be run by experienced nursery staff each day, looking after children from 3 months up to 4 years old. The nursery staff work tirelessly to ensure each child settles well and is individually cared for. Some our exciting families presenters will also be popping in from time to time to run exciting sessions for the Limmud Nursery. If you have any more questions or would like to run an activity for the nursery or for the families programme this year please do get in touch.
The families programme runs each day after the nursery and Young and Teen Limmud has finished, with some incredible sessions for the whole family. This year we already have confirmed a number of exciting presenters who we can’t wait to share with you!
Families accommodation will again be based in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, where all accommodation for families with children aged 14 and younger and the Families Dining Room, with food options suitable for all ages, will be found. Families whose children are all above the age of 12 will this year have the option to book any of the accommodation options at Festival. Please bring your own travel cots to Festival wherever possible. If this will be a problem for you, please contact the Limmud Office and we will be able to provide one for you.
For children who are 7 and older (Year 3 +) we have a fantastic nightclub running each day in the evening. These fun evening sessions offer kids the opportunity to pick from 3 different activities and give parents another opportunity to enjoy the amazing festival programme on offer.
This year baby listening will be offered in the Crowne Plaza hotel for any children under 11 years old on Sunday – Wednesday evening. Volunteers will be stationed outside bedrooms and will call you if your child/ren become unsettled. This gives parents the opportunity to go and enjoy the amazing evening programme, knowing their children are safely tucked up in bed. We would like to ask parents who wish to use this service to sign up for one baby listening session during Festival
We have so much more to confirm for our amazing Limmud families so watch this space for updates about everything on offer this year.
