Our festival highlights – Eloise (10) Charlotte (7) & Amelie (7)

The summer of 2017 was amazing. We had rain, we had mud, we had boiling hot sunshine… Yet we managed to dance our way through everything the British weather decided to throw at us.

Eco-friendly Camping Tips

Festivals are a big strain on the environment. Huge amounts of waste are created by events every weekend in the UK, sending hundreds of tons of extra waste in to landfill or off for incineration. But eco-friendly camping is not that hard.

For many families who live eco-conscious lives at home, the good efforts go straight out of the window when camping.
