The Great Estate 2019 Review

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.

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 world. There are so many opportunities for children to explore and create and run freely. I had already started to feel run down with the start of the academic year, but Into the Trees was a perfect way to refresh and find our energy again. The whole family had an absolutely wonderful time.

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 any I’ve been to.

England’s Medieval Festival 2018 Review

England's Medieval Festival 2018 kidsReview by Tamu and family.

A day at England’s Medieval Festival

These two young royals, their grandparents, and I were lucky enough to experience England’s enchanting Medieval Festival this summer in the magnificent grounds of Herstmonceux Castle.

On arrival we were met with the gorgeous view of a sea of canvas tents beautifully pitched around the main arena. A crowd had already formed and as we got nearer we realised a jousting tournament was in full swing!

The kids wriggled their way to the front and we enjoyed an awesomely potent performance put on by big men on powerful horses, all authentically dressed in medieval jousting costume. Fabulous! There were many intakes of breath by the crowd, including my Mum, and the kids were transfixed. This was our welcome to England’s Medieval Festival and what a way to greet the crowds!
