Bearded Theory 2019 Review

View of the main stage from the childrens village.

Bearded Theory 2019 was truly a festival for the whole family.

I saw so many children there that at points I wondered whether there was anyone who hadn’t come with kids!

I think the reason that it was so popular was the balance. There was something for everybody, with tents offering everything from cabaret to dance.

There were art installations everywhere and a cracking line up. It gave guests a great opportunity to be near to the front for some big bands.

Black Deer 2019 Review

Yee Haw!

On Saturday we were transported to a land of country music, cowboy hats and good ol’ barbecued ribs. All of this took place in Tunbridge Wells in Kent at Black Deer Festival. We were invited along for the day to see what this festival had to offer for families.

Woodlands Festival 2019 Review

We popped along to Woodlands Festival for the day to check it out.

Families braved some torrential rain and winds to put even the toughest campers off on Friday evening but on Saturday to sun shone, the fancy dress came out, and the glitter flowed. A great day was had by all in the lovely location of Elm Wood in Kent.

Shindig Festival 2019 Review

Shindig Festival 2019 girls playing cardboard guitarsby Naomi, with Eloise (12), Charlotte (9) and Amelie (9)

Shindig Festival kicked off our summer with a riotous blend of music, dancing and just plain old good quality family time.

There was an impressive amount on offer for both adults and children. They even had the ‘difficult’ teenager stage covered.

Due to our eldest now being in secondary school, we drove up after the school day on the Friday. But if you can get there earlier I would recommend it, as there’s so much to see and do.

Elderflower Fields 2019 Review

With Evelyn (9), Martha (6) and Ada (2)

We have always wanted to visit Elderflower Fields. But we always seem to have something on over the first weekend of the May half term. This year the stars of our many online calendars finally aligned. When school finished we jumped in the car and headed straight to Sussex. Even the weather seemed to be on side with the forecast dry, warm and sunny all weekend.
