Just So 2018 Review

Just So was such a jam-packed blast of a ride that when I first sat down to write this review I had no idea how I would fit it all in. It really is a non-stop assault of fun, creativity, the fantastical and the downright bonkers.

Just So’s 2018 Programme Preview

Just So is a firm favourite here at Festival Kidz. We love the creativity that goes into every aspect of this wonderful family festival, from thoughtful planning through to perfect execution. It is quite simply a haven for families, filled with wonder and magic, where children can be children and adults can be… well, children […]

Just So 2017 Review

Just So is a land where, for one weekend each year, the line between childhood and adulthood are blurred. This is a place where real and fantasy blend into a smorgasbord of the weird and wonderful. Where pillow fights and midnight feasts compete with live arcade games and roaming theatre. And most importantly, where families […]

Just So 2014 Review

15-17th August A perfect little celebration of the arts and the glorious outdoors all wrapped up in a weekend of family fun. This was our first Just So festival and we would happily return every year. The festival is only in its 5th year but it is now a firm favourite on the festival calendar […]

Just So Festival 2012 Review

2012 Just So Festival weather: Sunny and warm, but with heavy showers. 2012 was the third Just So Festival.  You won’t find commercialism or big children’s TV characters here, just boundless opportunities to play and explore in a magical journey through the woods. This is not just a festival… this is a place where kids and families can […]

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 […]

Victorious 2019 Review

We returned to Southsea for our second Victorious and had another wonderful time. Its beautiful seaside location in Portsmouth makes it easy to get to. The line up is always amazing, with some really big names. Because of this, my children (15 and 11) absolutely love it. The kids’ field has an astonishing amount for […]

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 […]
