Buddhafield Festival

Buddhafield Festival is a beautiful coming together of like minded people.  Based on Buddhist spirituality and allowing plenty of opportunity for meditation and reflection.  This is a unique festival.

This is a very safe festival, and single mothers in particular have commented on how comfortable they feel there.  There is a dedicated Women’s Space for those who want it, and there is also a Queer Dome for those feeling the need for some support.  Families are very welcome.

There is a strict no drink or drugs policy.

Going Solo – Why Should Single Parents Miss Out?

Last year at Blissfields we happened to be camping near some single parents having a fantastic time and by the end of the festival we were all great friends.

So what do you do if you’re a festival-loving person and you don’t have a partner, or if your partner hates camping and refuses to go with you? Do you give up on festivals? I know if you love festivals as much as we do here at Festival Kidz that is simply not an option. Read more…

Flummoxed 2014 Review

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.

The Cornbury Music Festival 2011 Review

arriving at cornbury festival

After a wonderful weekend of fun, music and frivolities with my two lovely festival kids, it’s taken me a few days to regain normality to our routine, hardly surprising when The Cornbury Festival was so entertaining!! Only a half hour’s drive from our home town, in a beautiful countryside setting, who could resist a weekend away with so much to offer? Alpro Soya asked me to come along as their guest to The Cornbury Festival on behalf of Festival Kidz and see how us festival goers really enjoyed ourselves, sampling their free tasty goodies all weekend at the Alpro Breakfest Stand too!!
