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?!)

I have always been a festival girl at heart – I love everything about it from the music, to the food, the fashion, the diversity, the nightlife to the wonderful corners filled with art installations and festival parades.

I spent most of my twenties hitting the festival scene but when I turned thirty I got married to Lee and a year later we were parents; sadly my good old festival days were behind me!  This was until 2015 when some mates and I got drunk at Christmas and on a whim booked Wilderness tickets; we left the kids with our parents and spent the weekend eating great food, covered in glitter and dancing till dawn in the Valley… we had an incredible time and my love for festivals was reborn!

Glastonbury is one festival I would really love to return too, but now I have kids its been something Ive been really hesitant about- Do I really want to struggle with camping, 100,000’s of people, the dirt, portaloos, the late nights and two misfit kids to run after?! So when our lovely Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Emma from Emma Stoner Photography was off to photograph Glastonbury this year with her two year …

Wilderness Festival 2016…

Magical Oxfordshire Festival…

There is something really magical about Wilderness Festival. I have spent many years of my youth visiting different festivals and I have enjoyed many of them, but there is something about Wilderness that just captures my heart.

For me going to Wilderness in 2015 was about me finding my festival feet after being off the circuit since having two children. Wilderness is a very kid friendly festival, but it was my weekend to escape the madness and routine of home life and to go and let loose for a few days (minus kids,) in the glorious Oxfordshire countryside.

The Wilderness programme is so varied; there is something for everyone. The line up includes music, theatre, pop-up restaurants, variety of street food and cocktail vans, talks, workshops, wild swimming and so much more.

One minute your having a delicious sit down meal at The Petersham Nurseries, the next your head to toe in glitter (thank you Rosa Bloom and  In Your Dreams girls) and heading down to party in the Valley! Other highlights include the incredible selection of delicious street food stalls on offer (check out Moro as its sooo good!), Jose Cuervos Tequilla Town, and how can you miss out on drinking champagne in a hot tub at The Lakeside Spa!
