Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors tops the family line-up at Standon Calling this summer as the music festival's organisers unveiled an array of activities and entertainment for its younger fans.

The team behind the four-day boutique event in the grounds of Standon Lordship, just seven miles from Bishop's Stortford – which this year takes place from July 21 to 24 – pride themselves on creating a fun-filled environment for everyone, from toddlers to teens to adults.

The Horrible Histories team will explore the crazy characters from Britain's barmy past as part of their Terrible Tudors show – and that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the family-friendly entertainment.

Dick & Dom, the nation's biggest kids' TV comedy double act, will go head to head behind the decks for their legendary DJ Battle.

And vibrant Lycra-clad fitness icon Mr Motivator will be on hand to get everyone up on their feet and feeling good.

Families can enjoy all the Standon staples like the famous dog show, swimming pool and costume parade, with this year's theme of 'Who Let The Toys Out?' running amok around the festival site.

Little ones can join the Woodland Tribe to collaborate with others on creative building projects, get up close to Jurassic creatures with How To Train Your Dinosaur Live, dive into a boisterous mix of comedy, clowning and circus skills with The Flying Seagull Project and dance their hearts away at the Fromage Juniors Kids Disco.

As well as the Toddler Playzone and the comprehensive Hip Hop Academy inspiring teens with tutorials on beatboxing, street dance, DJ skills and graffiti, other engaging activities include a daily kids' rave, laser tag games, zip line, zorbing, circus acts and trapeze lessons, plus daily games and competitions.

When the kids are all worn out, just take it down a notch by trying your hand at some cosmic crafting and come back down to earth with a family yoga and wellbeing session.

You can also call into the Storytellers' Corner for a spot of Rhubarb Theatre, Tongue and Cheek poetry workshops and tales from acclaimed local authors and master storytellers Ian Douglas, Tamsyn Murray, Alice Hemming and more.
