Glastonbury Festival 2017 Round Up…. Glasto with Kids!

Glastonbury 2017…

Ahh wonderful Glastonbury… its been over 12 years since I last saw your wonders (yikes, am I really that old?!)

The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza… What went down….

The EWE wedding fair in Birmingham…

Right, I’m back in the room… and what an amazing weekend its been!

For those who don’t know, this past weekend was The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza (EWE) held at The Bond in Birmingham.  It promised to be a weekend full of unique, alternative and kick-ass wedding suppliers and it certainly delivered!

I was there to spread the Mr & Mrs Unique love as their media sponsor and to also give out some of our new Spring/Summer Magazines to the awesome couples we met over the two days.

The EWE fair was certainly one of the best wedding fairs I’ve been too; there was a real fun, community feel about the event, plus there was so much going on with over 60 epic stands, workshops, catwalk parades, live music, cool DJ sets and not forgetting the delicious street food on offer.
