80’s Rewind 2011 (Henley) Review

2011 80’s Rewind (Henley) Weather: Torrential rain for the first 2 hours, then it dried out on Day 1 and glorious weather on Day 2.

Review by: Caswasere (with 2 kids, 9 and 6 years old)

Getting to the festival:

Queue was about 20 mins to get to the camping arena.  We did have to carry the stuff quite far – pull along carts available to hire, but the queue was horrendous for these.  People had brought flimsy trucks to wheel things along – pointless: most broke before they got to their campsites – best inventions were those that had brought wheel barrows, or industrial strength carts.

Entertainment – Line up and Kids Activities:

There was a children’s entertainment area, we used this Fri evening after setting up the tent, but didn’t have time to go anywhere near it on the main Sat/Sun event.  Entertainers were good and there was lots of circus equipment for them to try out, really good as it was free!
