Saturday Program

4 November, 2pm-10pm

Your weekend is here and it’s time to make the most of it. Create memories and have fun at the Real Festival with free activities, entertainment and experiences for all ages.

Feeling adventurous? Start your day with free kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and boat cruises, then get amongst the jaw-dropping on-water action including jetpack demonstrations and dragon boat races.

Learn to build, climb, cook, create and grow with hands-on activities along the riverbank. Then take some time to stroll through the artisan markets and pick yourself up something unique – you deserve it.

Wander around and soak up the atmosphere with live music, entertainment and roving performers at every corner, then sit back and relax with a beverage in the pop-up bar or tantalise your tastebuds with something delicious from the food trucks.

Don’t miss the breathtaking fusion of theatre, dance and circus that is Strange Fruit, the large-scale illuminated and interactive artworks in the outdoor art gallery and the spectacular water Fire Jet display.

Saturday’s program highlights include fun activities, interesting demonstrations and entertaining talks at the EnviroLife Stage, the Silent Disco where you can dance the night away and the super-sized fun of Super Box World.
