Less than 3 weeks to go!

Check in here and tell me what you are packing!

TeamEdward Sun 04-Aug-13 17:47:04

Just me then?!

mousetours Sun 04-Aug-13 20:53:51

We are going too. Very excited now. Never been camping before so no idea where to start!

TeamEdward Sun 04-Aug-13 21:35:09

Carfest 2012 was our first camping experience as a family!
We cheated a bit (and are doing so again this year) by having a Greenfields tent.

Last year we bought a trolley to cart the DC around the site it. It was fabulous and shall be coming with us again this year.
New purchases for this year include a camp kitchen unit, sporks, and I've just bought some Travel Johns from Amazon.

mousetours Sun 04-Aug-13 22:47:41

Have you got any tips from last year? Are there lots of things you need to pay extra for?

We've got a greenfields tent too. Struggling to put a tent up might end our trip before its begun!

So far we have a camping stove, plates, cups etc but no idea what we are going to cook!

TeamEdward Mon 05-Aug-13 00:13:33

Take lots of cash because the cash machine on site charges (there is a bank in the nearby village)

Not loads of extra charges - a few rides for the kids maybe. The food is pricey but very good. Pizza stall and paella stand come highly recommended by DC!

I'm sure I'll think of more tips - I'll be back tomorrow!

mousetours Mon 05-Aug-13 17:26:24

Thanks that's useful to know. Do the children have glow sticks in the evenings - not sure if I should take some or not. Also is it fairly easy to get water or is it best to take supplies?

TeamEdward Mon 05-Aug-13 18:18:24

The water standpipe was easily accessible but did run out on Sunday in the Greenfields camp. We took two 5ltr bottles of water so it didn't effect us.

Not many kids had glowsticks, but we took loads and used them all! The tubes from Poundland were great (20 for £1 I think)

TeamEdward Mon 05-Aug-13 18:19:09

Don't forget a large shopping bag to take into the shower to keep your clothes/towel dry - there is not lot of room in the shower trailers.

We are going, we are hardened campers but first festival with kids.

What is your trolley like? DH threatening to make one but he will run out of time and it won't happen. I need a plan B for a week's time when he admits it!

TeamEdward Tue 06-Aug-13 08:52:50

Our wagon is a bit like this. The red cover is removable.
We might "pimp my ride" for Carfest, maybe a pirate or superhero theme, and get the kids to dress up accordingly. TBH it's not really dressing up type festival but DCs took there superhero costumes last year and lots of people said what a lovely idea it was.

Our wagon isn't huge, but big enough for 5yo DS2 to curl up in! Last year he slept through most of Saturday night's music, although we did have ear defenders for them.

TeamEdward Tue 06-Aug-13 08:53:12

their, not there!

mousetours Tue 06-Aug-13 12:55:18

Great tips!

I have a 4yo will he need ear defenders? I hadn't thought about noise levels!

TeamEdward Tue 06-Aug-13 16:26:31

The cars can be VERY noisy on the hill climb, that's the main reason we got them for the DC. DS1 (7 at the time) didn't wear his much, but DS2 (4 then) did wear them when asleep in the wagon.

TeamEdward Tue 06-Aug-13 16:30:45

We have Edz Kidz
I think they're a bit cheaper on Amazon

mousetours Tue 06-Aug-13 18:26:30

Thanks I have ordered some from Amazon.

ImpatientOne Tue 06-Aug-13 20:25:25

At Carfest North this weekend most of the cars were ok noise wise but the dragsters and F1 cars would be too loud for most children! We wore earplugs at the music stage as we were near to the front each night - there were lots of kids with ear defenders, including Chris' son Eli!

There were lots of kids in wagons although it was quite a pain for them as the crossing point wasn't open that much (and didn't always open as per the published schedule) and the only other option was a foot bridge via an uneven and narrow path!

It looks like South is a much posher affair as we didn't have the option of paying for nicer toilets wink

TeamEdward Wed 07-Aug-13 11:26:31

No point paying for the posh toilets if you're in the Greenfields camp though as the posh toilets ar on the far side of the festival site and you can only use them when the site is open. "Normal" campers can use them before and after site opening times.
That said, the Greenfields toilets were pretty good and exclusive for the camp. Not too far of a walk from the music stage if you really can't face portaloos either.
I'm also hoping lots of day visitors & normal campers have bought posh loo passes so that the other toilets are not so busy!
Last year there was a special she-wee area which was great for avoiding the loo queue.

A special she-wee area? I'd love to try one but I can't imagine that being a communal experience tbh. smile

We are definitely taking ear defenders - DH massively into cars and won't hear of children being near that noise without them. Me massively into music though expect I wont get quite so much bouncing done with kids in tow.

TeamEdward Thu 08-Aug-13 15:01:47

The she-wee place is quite nice actually! They have a urinal type trough, but canvas cubicles built around it so everyone has privacy. It's full of giggles though as women try it for the first time - I had a bit of performance anxiety (TMI? grin). They've also got some comfy chairs and a mirror. It's just about the only place on site where you can check your hair!

Our tickets have just arrived in the post!

Oooh I hope mine are there when I get home! I'm hardly excited at all!!!!

I just looked at She Wees and saw the PeePol bag / toilets that looked pretty good. Normally at night my girls just pee behind the tent but in a festival situation these look they might be a good idea.

Has anyone used them?

TeamEdward Thu 08-Aug-13 19:41:14

Not seen those PeePoo bags before. We have used TravelJohn bags before when camping.

mousetours Fri 09-Aug-13 10:53:17

Tickets have arrived! Only 2 weeks to go!

mrswimpeydimple Fri 09-Aug-13 16:11:03

Our tickets arrived today too, woo hoogrin Just me and 3yo DS to our first festival, but we have done a bit of camping before. Bringing a smaller tent than usual and have just ordered his ear defenders and some travel johns so thanks for the tips. We're in quiet camping and ill bring a sack trolley to help get our gear from the car. Anyone been before and know whether the car park is close by?

Really looking forward to it.

mousetours Fri 09-Aug-13 16:23:37

There is a map on the carfest app. No other info yet though. I think it depends on where your car is in the car park and where you are in the campsite but it does look like the quiet camping is closer to the car park.

mrspink27 Fri 09-Aug-13 22:24:50

Still waiting for our tickets... although Greenfields email came today...

mrswimpeydimple Fri 09-Aug-13 22:56:53

Thanks mouse, app downloaded and map being studied!

Purplehulk Sat 10-Aug-13 08:15:11

Morning all
Another car fester here.
Quick question, when the tickets arrived did you have to sign for them?
We moved last week and they are being delivered to the old house ( no one living there and we still have the key for collecting post)
Just hoping I don't have to sit in an empty house every morning until they arrive.
Thanks

mrswimpeydimple Sat 10-Aug-13 08:50:45

Tickets arrived normal post, were on doormat when I came home from work.

Purplehulk Sat 10-Aug-13 10:29:57

Brilliant, thanks
That makes life a little simpler smile

Acde2013 Sun 11-Aug-13 17:08:29

Hi all we are also carfesting ... Hoping we get some decent weather!! We have booked a wagon for the three days from mr trolley, also going to order some ear defenders for our 2 little ones ! 2 weeks to go cannot wait !!

We are going too but not camping. I would have done the glamping but didn't manage to get tickets for that unfortunately. We are staying in a hotel in Basingstoke.

And I bought tickets for the posh toilets! I'm normally a 5-star hotel kind of girl you see. blush. And I'm old.

Hi, we're off to Carfest too! Very excited. We got Campervan tickets this year which makes things simpler thank goodness. Didn't know there was an App so shall head off and find it now. Thanks.

Ok, just had a look a the map. Looks good but the car run is all off to the side. I presume you can see it all. Just doing my shopping list to stock up. Got as far as Bacon (lots) so far.

TeamEdward Thu 15-Aug-13 17:33:39

I've been stocking up on beer!

Ooh, good point!

ImpatientOne Thu 15-Aug-13 20:55:39

They got quite strict on bag searching for alcohol at North and there were lots of signs about not taking it from the camping area to the festival area - especially glass.

The funny thing was though they didn't look in kids backpacks or in buggies wink

TeamEdward Thu 15-Aug-13 21:00:00

We weren't checked once last year (but then we take it in the wagon or kids bags too wink )
I think the glass was an issue last year, especially as at South it is essentially farmland.

We weren't checked at North or South last year, in fact I don't remember any signs, just that anything brought onto the site had to be for personal consumption. Maybe I missed the no glass signs.

I like the idea of them having an App, but last year there was bugger all mobile signal at all, and never a glimmer of a data connection. Wonder if they've considered that.

ImpatientOne Fri 16-Aug-13 07:52:11

There were lots of hastily hand written signs when entering the festival area but also the pre-printed campsite rules said something about quantities. I think it's on the tickets or somewhere as there have been people moaning on the Carfest Facebook site about alcohol restrictions.

Re mobile signal there is a company providing WiFi - 30 mins free but for a donation to CIN you can have all day. I only managed to get on it once and it was slow. The app was no use to me all weekend as although I had 3G the app just had too much data to load.

Also the app wasn't updated with changes (I checked when we got home) so was no better than the programme or printing the map/info that Carfest put on Facebook.

Fortunately I had means of charging my phone after wasting all my battery trying to see the app grin

Acde2013 Fri 16-Aug-13 18:17:10

Just going through our shopping list - as we are first timers to carfest are there any essentials you guys who have been before would take? Not sure what we are doing for food - buying all weekend or cooking somethin? Is there a shop that sells essentials like milk ?

There was a camping shop last year, which was very expensive and rather crap. I'd only use it for emergencies to be honest. Lots of good food will be available from the exhibitors at the show, but not sliced white or pints of milk. I don't know if the camping shop at Carfest North was any better this year.

Plenty of good hot/cold food outlets are there too so you won't starve,

mrswimpeydimple Fri 16-Aug-13 22:39:04

Ok, so this may be a bit of a dumb question, but those of you who have camped at Carfest before, how did you keep any food in your cool box cool for the weekend? No EHU and no camp shop to refreeze ice blocks, and we may be having a warm one next week if forecast is correct. Can't afford to eat out for the whole weekend so will be cooking at tent and having breakfast there too.

We kept stuff that needed keeping cool to a minimum and had uht milk for the Sunday evening/Monday morning. Glad we did as the shop ran out. Bacon lasted in a cool box from Friday to Sunday morning, it's cured after all. We had spread instead of butter which stayed useable. Evening meal Sunday was pasta, jar of sauce, so no cooling needed. Keeping the coolbox quite densely packed and minimising it being open seemed to keep the milk fresh for a couple of days.

mrswimpeydimple Fri 16-Aug-13 23:00:13

Thanks. Good idea about the UHT milk.

ImpatientOne Sat 17-Aug-13 22:33:29

Camp shop at North was basic and £££ and ran out of milk, bacon & bread by Sunday morning! shock

We didn't really cook at all just made hot drinks and had breakfast at the tent but there was only DH and me so it wasn't too expensive to eat over at the festival. Crepes were £4-£5, hot pork sandwiches a fiver, fish and chips, noodle boxes and ostrich burgers £7 and pizzas a tenner. We also had pies from the Best of British tent which were about £2/3, they had sausage rolls and sweet things too.

There were also food vendors on the campsite but prices are pretty much standardised throughout - except water which was £2.50 a bottle at some places but only £1 in others. There were water taps throughout the festival site though so we just kept on refilling! It was HOT at North and the water we kept in the tent was too warm!

TeamEdward Sat 17-Aug-13 22:43:55

We took two pints (it's only for tea anyway) - one pint carton was fresh and we froze the other.
We're going to freeze some bread as well this year as it travels better as a hard loaf!
We're taking porridge pots, frozen bacon, tins of beans, pouches of Bolognese (got them cheap in Sainsburys!) and pasta. Also lots of snacky things for the DC (crisps, rice krispie squares, flapjacks etc) so they don't pester for chips all the time!

The food is very good, and not too bad value for festie food, just a bit expensive when trying to feed a family of four for 3 days!

There is no camp shop on the Greenfields site, although enterprising staff did arrive a big pile of bacon sandwiches that they sold in the mornings! They also would charge your mobile phone if you had the lead (but then had to trust them with it) and phone reception was crap.

One thing I will certainly take is a folding airer to hang coats to dry. Soggy anoraks are no fun.

TeamEdward Sat 17-Aug-13 22:47:19

Re Booze
It says this on the Carfest website:
Please do NOT bring any alcohol onto the festival site, a small quantity may be brought into the campsites
but I'm going to ignore this anyway
One stall last year was charging £6 for a plastic cup of Pimms & lemonade. shock

ImpatientOne Sat 17-Aug-13 22:50:37

Was £5 for Pimms - hooray for the cheap North wink well a small was £5 (half pint) and a pint was £10, I think the jugs were £25 plus deposit for the jug.

TeamEdward Sat 17-Aug-13 23:00:40

I have my own jug - maybe I should bring that too.

ImpatientOne Sat 17-Aug-13 23:06:36

My one small Pimms was the only alcohol I had all weekend and my DH didn't touch a drop - we are total lightweights though so it wasn't the price or risk of night time toilet trips that put us off!

I'm so jealous of everyone going to South as I want to go again!!!

mrswimpeydimple Sun 18-Aug-13 22:18:18

I will be bringing a bottle of wine for the campsite and a supply of that camping staple 'gin in a tin' to stuff in the bag while we go hear the music. Won't be a boozy festival for me as I'm on my own with a 3yo! Must remember to write my mobile umber on his arm for the duration too.

TeamEdward Sun 18-Aug-13 22:22:21

My DSs will mostly be wearing superhero or Star Wars costumes so if you spot us wave a pack of pom bears at me or come and talk about "naice ham" wink

TeamEdward Sun 18-Aug-13 22:23:27

Weather is looking pretty good for next weekend too!
Overcast Saturday, but warm all weekend. Min temp 17C, Max 24C

As long as its warm I don't mind slightly overcast, it reduces the amount of suncream stops. I hope the playbus is there again, that was DS1's favourite thing of all.

Mobile number written on the arm is genius, will be doing that, possibly to DH too.

mrspink27 Mon 19-Aug-13 10:05:29

Yes - as long as no rain and not toooo chilly I wont mind. Last year was pretty miserable at times with the heavy downpours.

mrspink27 Mon 19-Aug-13 10:06:16
mousetours Mon 19-Aug-13 10:32:23

How exciting! Bouncy castle kingdom looks interesting.

I remember the heavy downpours! We got soaked, our own fault we were totally unprepared.

I've just emailed Mr Trolley to reserve a trolley for the 3 days. The DS's are 3 and 5 months so we need a moveable bed for the evenings.

I shall put a pombear packet on the edge of the trolley, once DS has disposed of the contents, if anyone feels like saying hi.

TeamEdward Mon 19-Aug-13 20:42:43

I shall wave TheSkiingGardener!
We've just decided to "pimp our ride" - the wagon is currently being sprayed matt black, ready for a Batmobile paintjob tomorrow!

The rain last year was immense! Me & DS1 were in the breadmaking workshop but DH & DS2 were drenched. There is very little cover when it rains!

I don't know if the booking "system" (and I mean in the loosest sense of the term) for the workshops will be the same this year, but they did get booked up very early in the morning. Also you were only allowed to book for one workshop at a time (so you couldn't do breadmaking at 11am and ice cream at 1pm, you could only do one and then when that was finished, book another). It didn't stop some people sending up every person in their party to book

TeamEdward Mon 19-Aug-13 20:47:39

The map doesn't show the hedgeline that ran behind the Big Top and the display in that row. Do you think it's been taken out?
It made for a long walk 'round from the Big Top to the Kids Activities...

It was a big walk, the field boundary is still marked on the plan on the App though, which is the technical plan. And there are 2 seperate BoH routes marked either side, whatever they are, so I'm guessing not.

TeamEdward Mon 19-Aug-13 21:22:43

Oh well, that what we got a wagon for!

TeamEdward Mon 19-Aug-13 21:24:20

BoH could mean Back of House (so an amenities route)

The bat mobile paint job will make you very easy to spot! If we find the trolley that useful we may get one too, I think ours would have to go Ferrari red though.

That's my best guess too, it's a hilly site which is a pain. Cholmondely for CarFest north was better in that respect!

Acde2013 Tue 20-Aug-13 18:36:18

What is the camping fields like at south ?Any real difference between quiet and normal camping ? Glow sticks/glow hair lights all arrived today ! Wellies and sun hats at the ready !!

Quiet camping is just a bit further away, no other real difference. The site slopes heavily in places so consider where and how to pitch! Becausd of the way we pitched last year DH struggled to climb up off the airbed each morning!

Edsmum2004 Wed 21-Aug-13 17:44:04

Okay, really practical question from a total non-camper and someone who likes the basic necessities of life! Looking on the app, it looks like there is only one area of toilets/showers for the main camping area, is that what happened last year?

Realistically what. The queues like for the loos, I'm wondering whether I should have bought VIP loo passes, childbirth has taken its toll!

Purplehulk Wed 21-Aug-13 19:08:04

I remember last year's carfesters talking about workshops ( bread making, ice cream etc.) but I can't see details of these on the website or the app.
Anyone any ideas about what's available and when we can sign up please?

TeamEdward Wed 21-Aug-13 21:06:19

Last year you could only sign up on the morning. There were workshops on bread making, salads, ice cream, and butter.

Purplehulk Wed 21-Aug-13 22:54:20

Thanks TE
Where do we go to find out what's what?

The food workshop tent is over on the far side from the camping, next to the BBQ area.

The loos on the campsite were plentiful we thought last year. Only issue was that people would queue without checking all the doors and half the loos would be empty. They put wardens on there in the end to prevent that. You may have to queue a bit, we never had to for long.

Wonderstuff Thu 22-Aug-13 10:13:50

Just off to buy provisions for carfest. Went for the day last year, camping this year smile

Soo excited

TeamEdward Thu 22-Aug-13 22:41:34

We're all packed!
Just seen the weather forecast though...
It's basically going to pee down from 9pm Friday night to 7pm Saturday. Oh dear.

Wonderstuff Thu 22-Aug-13 22:49:58

That's a bummer. We have waterproofs though, and at least tent will dry on Sunday. We live in overton, so will nip home if it gets too much. I haven't packed yet..

TeamEdward Fri 23-Aug-13 04:53:06

Can I come too? grin

We've got wtaerptoofs, rain ponchos, wellies etc.

That weather forecast is depressing. Never mind! We've packed up my parents campervan and will shortly be on our way!

mrspink27 Mon 26-Aug-13 14:47:02

We are back and had a GREAT time - even if Mr Evans did decide to keep the whole of Greenfields awake until silly o'clock this morning with his "After Festival Party" in his section of the Yurts!!! Washing machine going and wholesome food consumed... And showers for everyone!

TeamEdward Mon 26-Aug-13 15:33:34

Oh yes! The FaF area was SO noisy! Quite nice to hear them letting their hair down after all the hard work though.

We've been home an hour and a half and haven't even upacked the car yet. Just can't face it. Give me ten more minutes and I'll peel myself off the sofa.

What was your favourite bit?
We really go for the music, so enjoyed Jools Holland, Keane (who are very local to us! I know Tom's wife), and the AMAZING Seasick Steve.

We've delivered the campervan back to the parents. Going home tomorrow so it's been nearly a weeks trip for us!

We loved it, although having a 5 month old as well as the 3 year old with us meant we took a long time to do anything.

Loved bouncy castle kingdom and the mini tanks and campervans. Loved Scouting for Girls and Seasick Steve too. Bring on next year, although if we don't get a caravan permit we may glamp it to be honest.

Wonderstuff Mon 26-Aug-13 19:36:07

The fireworks were my highlight, and Seasick Steve on Saturday. The kids didn't make it to the end of the headliners, which was a shame. Might try to get babysitters next year.

mrspink27 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:28:27

I like the food workshops, same as last year but my DDs love them all the same. Also the atmosphere and how friendly and relaxed it is. LOVE the music : Texas, Keane, Jools Holland and Amy McDonald, also the Eagles tribute and Bjorn Again.
DDs also had great fun on the assault course and simulators and also the freedom to roam and come back to find us. They also met Sharleen and Chris and had fun celeb spotting! Watching the radio show on Saturday was interesting, if a little damp!

Greenfields was not as good as last year. There were 1200 campers, double the number of tents, in the same space and only 8 showers, 8 female loos and 4 male cubicles. These were MILES away from our tent which meant a long walk and wait at busy times. BUT they were regularly serviced and cleaned and well maintained on site and in the event itself. Our neighbours were very cross about the bacon sandwich fiasco on Sunday morning!!

We will be back next year no doubt as we will have run out of Ecover samples and voucher by then it promises to be better again music wise.
Might reconsider our camping though and go for either a bigger tent or possibly hiring a campervan. Just hope it doesnt get toooo big for its' own good and lose some of the sparkle and specialness!

mrspink27 Mon 26-Aug-13 20:32:19

Oh yes and the fireworks! Loved those. Just wish the weather had been as lovely all weekend as it was on Sunday afternoon and evening. Makes it better all round.

Wonderstuff Mon 26-Aug-13 22:46:51

We were in bog standard camping and it was grand, well as soon as we'd hiked all our stuff from the car to the campsite in the searing heat grin

The licence they have doesn't allow more than 19999 people on site, can't see them trying to increase that, so it won't get bigger, but can see the proportion of VIP tickets increasing, they'd obviously sold the same tickets but made more money this year and I thought it was better. I hope it doesn't get too much more expensive, it's lovely to have it on our doorstep, took less than two minutes to drive home this morning.

Wonderstuff Mon 26-Aug-13 22:55:08

Dyou know the one thing that irritated me was the ban on bringing in alcohol combined with the expensive bar. We did smuggle in our own drink, but it did seem to be designed to extort money. Other festivals seem able to run more reasonably priced bars.

TeamEdward Tue 27-Aug-13 12:15:45

We didn't buy an alcoholic drink all weekend. Didn't exactly smuggle it in either. Did anyone get their bags checked?

What was the bacon sandwich fiasco? We cooked our own every morning, but saw the queue...
Agree there were a lot more tents there this year, but if you timed your wee breaks well you didn't need to queue much!
The Greenfields staff were great, especially helpful as we needed a fridge for medication. They took the meds to the Production office fridge and fetched it for us three times a day.

But the music was amazing, love love loved it!

TeamEdward Tue 27-Aug-13 12:18:27

And they're now playing Emily Stevens on the Jeremy Vine show!

TeamEdward Tue 27-Aug-13 12:23:48

Sorry, Emma Stevens.
emmastevensmusic.com/

Wonderstuff Tue 27-Aug-13 13:52:44

They were checking loads of bags, had quite a pile of confiscated cans on Fri and Sat between campsite and main site.

TeamEdward Tue 27-Aug-13 13:56:55

They must trust the Greenfields/boutique campers not to break nthe rules then!

mrspink27 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:38:31

We cooked our own stuff as well. But our neighbours preordered bacon/sausage/veggie baps on Saturday for Sunday breakfast, collection at 8am.

First of all they had to queue twice, one line for bacon, one line for sausage, so if you had both to collect one was cold before you got the other. Then the veggie sausages hadn't arrived at all and they also then ran out of bacon and everyone was told to come back at 9. Not funny if you had been waiting in the drizzle in the bacon queue for 45 minutes or if you were clutching a cold sausage bap. Given they were preordered the number must have been known in the first place. Also the baps weren't, they were sliced bread which was falling apart by the time they arrived and there were no serviettes, kitchen roll, bags etc to carry them so there were lots of damp irate campers struggling with handfuls of disintegrating, equally damp, cold bacon sandwiches which they paid £3 for the privilege of.

We weren't searched at all either and we only had our bands checked on Saturday evening.

Thought the glider fireworks were the best, but DH says the helicopters were more impressive!

That's odd, we weren't checked at all coming in from the main campsite. Maybe because we went in first thing and stayed all day, or maybe because we had enough luggage to run our own festival and it was just too daunting!

mousetours Tue 27-Aug-13 17:15:33

Had a great time. We weren't even checked for wristbands most of the time let alone anything else! I was confused why Greenfields camping gave us a white and a green wristband - surely one would have been enough!
My Dd (10) wasn't impressed with the bug show or the mad science show but loved the jousting and the trampolines.
Glowsticks were a big hit and lots of people asked where we got them. Nowhere seemed to be selling them.
I thought the loos were great both on the main site and at the greenfields camp. How they kept them so clean all the time was amazing.

TeamEdward Tue 27-Aug-13 19:47:16

We bought loads of glowsticks with us. Next year I'm bringing more and flogging them wink

Wonderstuff Tue 27-Aug-13 23:49:04

I must look dodgy!

we loved it. We had our bags checked once to-ing and fro-ing from the main site but they didn't question what was in the drinks bottle! We were near the quiet camping loos and they were always fine. Never queued behind more than one person and 10 minutes for the showers.

Kids loved it too and even when they crashed could hear the music very well back at the site! I didn't think the bar was that pricey - £4.30 for a draft pint. Though we did take a drinks bottle full of wine in too. Was disappointed when the beer ran out on Sunday!

I'll be waiting to book tickets for next year.
