You know that I love a good festival don’t you? If you head over to my ‘Festivals’ section you will see exactly what I mean. This weekend I’m taking Kitty & Ozzy to a new festival in Sussex called Fcorgotten Fields.
Personally I believe that the big family festivals have peaked and the way forward is going to be smaller sized festivals. Forgotten Fields has a limited capacity of 4,000 which excites me no end. If you look at this from the view of a family, festivals are expensive, the tickets, feeding, watering and entertaining everyone whilst these soon adds up and don’t get me started on the expense that is boutique glamping at festivals . So when you bear all this in mind, choosing the right festival for your family is an important decision and you need to factor everything in. For me, a smaller sized festival means feeling less stressed about losing sight of my kids in a sea of people, less queuing and being able to experience more.
And if you think a limited capacity means the line up won’t be good – think again. It’s cracking, perfectly suited to my taste too #bonus. Other great features include: Real festival ale, world food, 5 stages, world cinema and site art.
