Lunar Festival 2018 Review

Lunar Festival is a celebration of the moon, nature and all things psychedelic, set in the beautiful Umberslade Estate in Warwickshire. Back from a break in 2017, Lunar promised to be bigger and better than ever before, so I went with my family to see what has changed.

Let the fun begin!

We’ve been home for a few days since the Lunar Festival and I’m still full of that happy, relaxed glow that comes when you’ve had a great time.

Lunar Festival 2015 Review

Lunar Festival 2014 Review

Umberslade Estate, Tanworth, Warwickshire.

Reviewed by Lisa Morris, husband Joe and 2 children, aged 4 and 9.

Psychedelic, bonkers, imaginative and uplifting! That’s how I would sum up the Lunar Festival.

This is the first year that the Lunar Festival has taken place at Tanworth-in-Arden, Warwickshire, although apparently they had a “practice” event a couple of years ago.

This was less tiring for everyone involved and has made me think about the value of attending local events, especially during school term time.
