Our new festivals for 2020

It probably won’t come as a surprise that we absolutely love festivals. With the annual logistical juggle of multiple children, school holidays, and how long any of us can bear to be in a car together, it’s tempting to just pick a few favourites and return year after year.  

But, with so many festivals to choose from across the UK, the Festival Kidz team always try to peer out from our comfort zones and try something new. This may be a brand new festival in its first year or something that’s been on the wish list for a long time that we’ve not yet made it to.

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.

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 in and buy tickets…

Elderflower Fields 2018 review

Elderflower Fields review from guest writer Christine and family.

We rocked up at Elderflower Fields and were bowled over by the beautiful views. There were lots of happy children climbing trees and excitedly observing a resident vole family they’d found. We immediately felt relaxed and the cares of every day life just drifted away.

Elderflower Fields 2017 Review

Elderflower Fields continues to get better and better – a truly magical woodland adventure.

We have been massively excited in the run up to Elderflower Fields this year as it always feels like the start of summer. Last year’s weather was a bit amiss so we decided to go all out and hire a motor home. Typically, the run up to the festival this year predicted the first May heat wave! We have been to Elderflower Fields before but it seems to be growing and growing in popularity with the festival fully selling out at a 5000 capacity well before the event.
