Beautiful Days 2019 Review

Beautiful Days is without a doubt a top contender for best weekend of the year. This goes not just for my family, but for thousands of its loyal patrons. Every year the Levellers host an amazing festival that I think is impossible to out do, and yet it continues to improve. We have been to […]

Beautiful Days 2018 Review

The first time we went to Beautiful Days in 2011, we knew we’d found a very special event. This was our fifth Beautiful Days, and it is still our favourite place to be. We had such a lovely welcome as we approached the information tent, the guy that runs it (I can’t believe we don’t […]

Beautiful Days 2016 Review

An old fashioned feel good family festival ‘They’re not like they used to be’ – something we hear a lot at FestivalKidz as we get older. Parents reminisce about the ‘good old days’ of festivals. Before sponsorship took over. Before you needed to take out a bank loan for a pint at the bar. Before […]

Beautiful Days 2015 Review

I LOVE this festival! Having previously enjoyed bigger festivals as a pre-motherhood, carefree young woman, it was the first festival I went to with my young family in 2011, and I was firmly reassured that festivals can be wonderful places for children to play and learn. We didn’t hesitate to go back the next year (a […]

Beautiful Days 2014 Review

Beautiful Days 2012 Review

Beautiful Days 2011 Review

2011 Beautiful Days Weather: Mostly dry and warm. Sunny at times but with heavy rain on the Saturday morning. Review by: Chris Luxford (with a nearly 3 year old) Getting to the festival: The festival was clearly signposted from the A30 with stewards to guide people along the local lanes long before reaching the site. There was a steady stream of vehicles arriving, but no queue (though getting out […]

Into The Trees 2019 Review

This was the third Into the Trees for my family. We absolutely adore this perfectly chilled out little festival because it just seems to get everything right. As in previous years, we chose to visit for one day rather than the whole weekend. Once again, we wished we had camped for the entire festival. The […]
