With the summer holidays now in full swing, parents are searching for some fun, family friendly activities to keep the kids entertained with. Festivals are a perfect option for this, offering a kind of ‘mini-break’ in a vibrant environment which caters to the needs of the younger ones, but also provides an array of enjoyment for the adults too! If you’re seeking out the best family friendly festivals this summer, we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favourites (many of which has fantastic glamping UK experiences that you will simply love)! Go on, book yourself a festival this summer and give the kids an experience they’ll never forget!
Having recently returned from Unearthed In A Field Festival, a quaint but unforgettable festival experience in beautiful West Wales, it dawned on me that for some people going to a festival might seem like ‘not their thing’, ‘something the kids do’, or something ‘only for the hippy types’.
While having a self-confessed interest in the environment, I wouldn’t class myself as a hippy. Now in my 30s, I am not seen as young (although I don’t feel my age), so what was I doing at a festival, and why should you think about trying one if you’ve never experienced one? I’ve got a number of great reasons for you. These may not all resonate with you, but with such a vast array of festivals to suit everyone these days, I’m sure that there’s a reason for you to check one out for yourself.
Festival season is finally upon us, and we cannot wait to see what this season has to offer! Each and every year we see a new wave of innovation on the festival front, from luxury glamping accommodation options to new themes, quirky trends and massive headliners. 2017 is no exception, so if you’re looking to find the best festivals in the UK this year, look no further!
Unearthed in a Field (UIF) festival is firmly on the horizon, and with the weather looking like it’s set to hold out as visitors to this wonderful area of the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside descend to enjoy the fun and festivities, this year could just be the best one yet!
The mature circles of festival-goers are being cited as the reason that glamping popularity is becoming heightened here in the UK, with internet search data highlighting that more people are Googling the term than ever before, at any time or point in history!
In case you didn’t know, today (April 22nd) is Earth Day, an internationally celebrated day with a desire to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion and motivate people to action when it comes to looking after this precious little planet we call home.
If you are planning on a Devon glamping adventure this summer, then you might want to keep in mind that there’s set to be the first ever South West Outdoors Festival in September, and we’re all invited!
bluedot is a brand new three-day festival of discovery, taking place 22-24 July at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre – near our Cheshire glamping abode – which is the observatory in the North West of the country at the heart of humanity’s quest for knowledge.
