Morning! I've got that Friday feeling and am getting excited about my trip to London on Monday to visit the trade show, Bubble. I will be meeting Katie of Les Enfants for some plotting, scheming and inspiring finds. Now back to work, time for this weeks family holiday post. Today I want to ask you all, have you ever taken your child to a festival? We haven't but I want to! For the past three years I have suggested to Drew that we pack up the car and head to Camp Bestival. Sadly he is not so keen and I am still trying to convince him.
Camp Bestival is a family friendly festival in Lulworth Castle, Dorset at the end of July. For us it has everything we love, music, art, stories, food, comedy and probably much more besides. I had the email this morning confirming the line up for this years festival and I am impressed. Where else can you find Kool & The Gang, Mr Tumble, The Gruffalo and the River Cottage all in the same field? There is also the Young British Foodie Tent for my little and not so little foodies, jousting, a sewing tent, a wall of death, a farmers market and a WI tea tent. I'm there! And so much more besides.
Obviously this is a festival so camping is compulsory but fear not you can also 'rent' tents of many descriptions for your stay. I quite fancy a yurt or an airstream caravan for the weekend! And don't worry if the chidlren get caked in mud there are loads of 'Posh Wash' gas powered shower cubicles.
Early booking offers are available and they even offer a payment paln to help spread out the cost. Aren't they just fantabulous!
So I'm off now to perusade my reluctant husband, he's already said no when he saw what I was busy writing! This may take some time........
Have a fab weekend everyone
