Everyone looks forward to the Summer when you have a choice of festivals darted around the country.
An absolute must is to purchase some TravelJohnshttp://www.traveljohn.co.uk/travel-john-products.htmlbefore the festival. They act as portable loos which are a lifesaver especially in the middle of the night if you don’t want to travel to the toilets in the dark. The family size is the most cost effective (so 9 in total). Don’t worry about the adult vs kids ones (I think they were all the same size just in different colour boxes – so no real difference).
Seriously, don’t bother with anything else (wheelbarrows, sackbarrows, tiny wheeled trolleys). Invest in a good garden trolley with pumped up tires. This is the ONLY item that will transport your camping gear through the mud better than anything else. 2016 was the muddiest Glastonbury I have ever been to and the trolley held its own.
The site has a dedicated area for all children and their parents call Kidz Field. It is such a magical place, a sanctuary almost, for weary parents who have walked miles and miles with camping gear and kids in tow. Take advantage of the free face painting, rock climbing, aerial runway, arts and craft and shows they offer all day. Sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics. In the past my daughter sat quite neatly on my shoulders – not so much now that she’s growing up. She is almost as tall as me, so going to see bands is not an issue as I am hobbit size.
