Line-ups are starting to appear, tickets are selling out already and you are frantically booking time off work and arranging your finances to be able to go to all the festivals you have your eye on this year. Although every festival is different, there are certain things which I think are essential to know for any festival you go to. Have a look at my Festival Packing List and follow my simple Festival Essentials so you will be ready to rock it this festival season.
As you know, Joss and I have been tirelessly working on renovating our Sprite Major caravan and it’s finally finished! We took it out on its first outing over the weekend and we were thrilled with the result.
Last year Joss and I managed to get our hands on a second hand, 5-berth, Sprite Major caravan and since then have spent our weekends trying to get it ready for its first outing in a few weeks.
Over the May bank holiday, I kicked off the festival season with a bang (plus a lot of glitter and paint) and went to the fabulous Hogsozzle!
Hogsozzle is an intimate, smaller scale festival but what it lacks in attendee numbers it makes up for in personality, individuality, and creativity. This 3-day festival, nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside was amazing. There were sequins, feathers, fur, fancy dress and enough paint to rival a Dulux warehouse – it all made for a fantastic festival.
Festivals are a foodie’s paradise! I have been to festivals and always made the effort to try new food, but with the vast choice of food on offer, it’s hard to know what to go for. Not to mention, that forking out (no pun intended) on food every day can cost an absolute fortune. This very simple and healthy recipe is a go-to for me when I am preparing my food to take to a festival.
Bournemouth 7’s is the largest sport and music festival in the world and is a mash-up of sport, cider, music and sometimes sunshine which takes place every May bank holiday weekend in Christchurch, Bournemouth.
If you want an excuse to watch (mostly) good quality rugby, enjoy a drink … or two … or three, dance until the early hours of the morning, play some social sport and enjoy the bank holiday with your fellow students in beautiful Bournemouth, then this is your place!
