Parent Review: 2013
Flummoxed Festival is a tiny charming festival in the woods near the village of Bletchley, with live music and activities such as ukulele lessons and fairy hunts. With a capacity of 500 it’s the perfect size for a safe and intimate atmosphere. These tiny festivals are especially good for those families with toddlers and young children, who need somewhere safe for them to run around.
This year the festival is proud to be fundraising for Wild Survivors, an organisation working for the protection of elephants primarily in Tanzania.
The Flummoxed Festival was tiny. Teeny weeny tiny. Previously I had thought a festival with under 5000 people was small, but this one had 150 people, including the kids.
So I’m not sure whether the Flummoxed Festival is a festival or not, or just a lovely family friendly camping event with lots of live music and activities added for good measure.
But this was actually what made it a very enjoyable, friendly, relaxing experience and one that my whole family would readily do again next year.
This is a fledgling festival which appears to offer something quite different for families, a bit of a middle ground between staying on a normal camp site and going to a large, noisy festival.
FLUMMOXED FESTIVAL: 6-7th JULY 2013

I was gutted to miss the Feast in the Woods in May so I looked out for other events organised by Honeywoods Camping and was excited to get tickets for Flummoxed.
I was looking forward to this so much. It was also my birthday so thought it would be a great way to celebrate with my family. It was a case of bring-your-own food and drinks, although there was a great hog roast provided by a local butcher on the Saturday night.
