We’re going to our first festival together next weekend. It will either be a tremendous success or a huge failure. I am a little scared.
We’re heading to The Sunrise Festival near Frome, to grab our first taste of family festival fun. It looks amazing. But I am also a little scared. (Did I mention that I’m a little scared?)
Set against the backdrop of the stunning Thoulstone Park, The Sunrise Festival is billed as, “Another world”, incorporating a “micronation” of different spaces.
These spaces include a “Global Village” (which, in turn is made up of various areas – including “The Well Being Village” *happy sigh*), “Storylands”, a magical world of kids’ theatre, woodland storytellers and various play area settings and “The Shire”, which includes a space for crafts and eco-build projects. All of this is intertwined with lots of live music.
As a family, we like adventures; last summer we spent a week camping in a safari tent (our daughter had just turned two – many people said we were mad). However, we also like the ease of slobbing around in our PJ’s at the weekend, watching Saturday Kitchen and eating bacon sarnies.
I’m looking for a happy medium. Excitement and adventure, mixed in with the odd creature comfort and relaxation.
If you know how to achieve that when taking a toddler to a festival (is it even possible?!) then do let me know.
I need all the help I can get.
We will be reviewing The Sunrise Festival, taking place at Thoulstone Park near Frome, May 30th – June 2nd.
