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 […]

Into The Trees 2018 Review

This was our second year at Into The Trees. It is such a gorgeous event. This mini festival is the younger sister of the very popular Elderflower Fields, which takes place in May at the same idyllic location. Into The Trees offers a glorious escape from the pressures of our fast paced lives in our everyday […]

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 […]

Green Gathering 2019 Review

Festival Kidz families are all passionate about festivals but it is becoming increasingly obvious that the impact they have on our environment is massive. It’s hugely important to us that we find solutions to continue to be able to share outdoor events with our kids but it’s essential they move towards a more sustainable future. […]

Larmer Tree Festival 2019 Review

I don’t think I ever really enjoy the first few hours of a festival; the worry about the weather, how to get everything onto site on my own, whether we’ll get a decent camping pitch. It’s all a bit stressful until we get settled, and this years Larmer Tree was no exception. We arrived much […]

Timber Festival 2019 Review

Timber is a small, yet beautiful festival, nestled in the National Forest in Staffordshire. I was so pleased that our family were able to return to Timber’s second year. Timber is a celebration of the beauty of the landscape and the forest. It feels very respectful of the landscape it sits within. The site is […]

Bearded Theory 2019 Review

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. […]

Chilled in a Field 2018 Review

The family festival that feels like a proper holiday Chilled in a Field returned to Bentley in 2018 after a year off, and it felt like the festival had come back home. The venue works so well for the festival, and this year Chilled in a Field managed as close to a perfect festival as […]

Boomtown 2018 Review

The Greatest Show My first Boomtown was like a child’s first visit to the circus. Bright lights, sound, whirling colour, and with that sense of genuine excitement and adventure you feel when you have no idea what’s going to happen next. From the moment we walked out over the wonderfully relaxed Whistlers Green to look […]
