Reviews: 2018, 2017 2016.

The perfect festival to kickstart the season – mellow WOOD packs a significant punch with fascinating talks, brilliant workshops and a superb atmosphere for kids.

Tiny, intimate, folky, chilled and incredibly friendly festival with lots of hands-on workshops for all the family.

Wood say: “Our mission is to build community and connection, celebrate creativity and craft, and become aware of our place in nature. We aim to create a safe place where children (and adults) can be free to explore;
We aim to run our event on 100% renewable energy, and to recycle and reuse our waste products where possible.

Truck

Location: Hill Farm, Church Lane, Steventon, Oxon, OX13 6SW

Size: 10,000

Truck Festival is a reasonably priced back to basics affair, under the management of another great little festival, Y Not in Derbyshire.  Expect great music from smaller bands – no million pound headliners, but fantastic new discoveries and hand-picked gems.

 

Beware Ticket Payment Plans!

Ticket Clip ArtMany teenagers want to go to festivals with their friends (and not their parents!) so it’s only fair they pay for their own ticket. This is where ticket payment plans come in handy.

However, given the experience of a teenager featured on the BBC Radio 4 consumer advice program “You and Yours” today you may want to check the small print before signing up.  Read more…

Truck Festival 2015 Review

Once again, Hill Farm in South Oxfordshire opened up its gates on the 15th and 16th July 2015, for the biggest Truck Festival to date. With a sensational line up and a whole host of kid’s activities, the weekend looked a dead cert for one to remember. Read more…

Truck Festival 2014 Review

funStarting Truck Festival 2014 on the last day of school before the summer holidays was a genius idea. The kids finished early at midday and we made our way straight over to set up camp.

One thing that’s amazing at this festival is you’re allowed to take in your own alcohol. As long as you have no glass, you can take whatever drink you like.

As we made our way through the local village it seemed everyone was making great use of the nearby Co-op to stock up.

Although of course, there was a superb selection of drinks available inside the festival. Roughly £4 would get you a pint of cider/ beer or a glass of wine, and £5 would get you a cocktail at the beach bar – yes a beach bar, with a sand floor and even a surf board! Read more…
