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 […]

Timber Festival 2018 Review

Something small but beautiful happened in the National Forest, Staffordshire in July 2018. A brand new festival was born. Timber Festival is a celebration of nature, our relationship with the forest, a chance for children and adults to be free, to play, relax and be inspired. The first thing that struck me about Timber Festival […]

Starry Skies 2019 Review

Before I went to Starry Skies, I spent hours pouring over the map that I had been sent. Trying to decide where best to camp, which luggage drop off to use, how far away from the toilets I should be and how crowded the different campsites would be. Upon arrival we decided to take our […]

Bluedot Festival 2018 Review

Bluedot Festival is a celebration of intelligence, curiosity and wonder in all its forms. Scientists are on equal footing with rock stars and there were some beautiful moments where the two come together, such as watching Professor Tim O’Brien, Associate Director at Jodrell bank for Astrophysics interviewing Wayne Coyne, the frontman of psychedelic rock band […]

Cornbury Music Festival 2018 Review

The ‘return’ of Cornbury in all its glory… Cornbury Music Festival, set in the Great Tew Estate in Oxfordshire, is possibly about as traditionally ‘British’ as you can get.  If it wasn’t for the huge stages and campsites, one might be forgiven for thinking one might have stumbled upon a rather large village fete complete with […]

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 […]

Best Family Friendly Festivals 2019

People are always asking us which festival is the best! There’s no easy answer to this as everyone has their own favourites. Festivals have such a broad reach these days. There really is something for everyone. Do you want luxury or basic facilities, indie or world music, laid-back or party central? So before you dive […]

Try something new!

We all have our favourite festivals we want to return to year after year but there are so many festivals in the UK (and abroad!) that we haven’t tried. So this year we all picked a festival that Festival Kidz hasn’t covered yet. In May Naomi is trying out the gorgeous Shindig Weekender. June sees […]
