The Family Festival Guide

Slackline

SlacklineI’m always looking for fun things to do with my kids to keep them more interested in active outdoor play.

We’ve seen many slacklines set up at festivals, but it was always cool, fit, skater/surfer/free runner/base jumper type dudes doing it… I definitely do not fall into that group of people at all. Having said that, we bought a slackline for our daughters (but mainly so that I could try it out).

Heavenly Bliss…fields

blissfieldsbubblesBlissfields is nearly upon us! As usual we look forward to some excellent music and one of the best and definitely most friendly kids’ fields around.

We talked to Angel Sam, of Angel Gardens who run the special kids’ area, about what she has in store this year. Read more…

BOGS Boots Review and Competition

Wellies and festivals go together like a British bank holiday weekend and an unexpected downpour. No one wants to be the fool taping bin bags over their converse in a field full of mud. Being stuck with cold, wet feet is a guaranteed way to turn a great weekend into a miserable slog.

Nozstock 2016 Preview

Nozstock This small family-run event now in its 18th year is set in a beautiful rural part of Herefordshire on a working farm.

The immensely welcoming and independent event has evolved from a 50 friend gathering into an intimate musical odyssey; and now one of the UK’s longest running festivals. Read more…

Elderflower Fields 2016 Review

EF1Camping in half term is a family favourite event for us and this year we were even more excited than usual as we were off to Elderflower Fields; a family focused festival full of activities for the kids in beautiful Sussex countryside.

The festival is currently in its 5th year and has a capacity of 3000 which means it’s small and feels totally safe and friendly rather than some of the bigger festivals I have been to in my younger days. Based at Pippingford Park, an idyllic Sussex country estate less than an hour from home for us. Bonus!

Wood 2016 Review

Wood 2016

“This might be the best festival we all go to all summer!” proclaimed Sam Lee, folk superstar, during his headline Sunday night set at Wood 2016 Festival. As the communal fire burned, the sun shone low in the sky upon the living roof of the solar-powered stage, and Sam Lee’s traditional folk songs drifted over the woodland setting, it was hard to disagree.
