In-case you haven’t heard, there is a rather large festival going on in Somerset this weekend!
We grew up in Glastonbury and the festival was such a big part of our lives. I have so many amazing memories of my time spent there, obviously living so close absolutely everyone we knew used to go and being able to roam around for an entire weekend having so much fun really was the best thing EVER!
It still feels a bit wrong to not be there but we haven’t attempted it with children yet, we are planning to take them at some point but it is such a huge festival that we are going to wait until they are a bit older. I don’t feel too bad about missing out this year though because next month we are off to Larmer Tree.
We thought this looked like the perfect festival to go to with young children as it’s a smaller and has won awards for being family friendly.
Larmer Tree is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary and is promising it’s most exciting year yet. It has a range of range of music, activities and comedy for all ages and is set in the Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire, hence it’s name 😉
There are six stages as well as lots of different areas including a creative craft area which is where you will find me and Cherry! The Larmer Lawns have activities for children going on all day including bubble discos, circus skills and arts and crafts. There is also an adult free teenage space for older children.
One of my favourite things about festivals is the huge choice of food on offer, plus the fact you don’t need to cook or wash up after eating!
Larmer Tree pride themselves on their excellent camping facilities which include award-winning toilets (definitely what you need at a festival!), free hot showers, ample water points, cafes, shops and different options such as quiet, family or comfy. You also have views of the countryside without the feeling of being cramped in.
It looks and sounds so amazing and I am really excited. This will also be out first family camping experience so keep an eye out next month to see how it all goes. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed for nice weather!
Tier 4 tickets are still available and under 5’s go free.
