Just so festival

Was utter hipster nonsense

We came home early more of a county fair

And when a boy was asked by an entinterainer in the not so magical wood who what types of things he hates he shouted TORYS

What 7 year old would give that as a answer

My husband was just like we need to go utter horse shit their wasn’t much music most of the activities were drunk grownups while there children looked on

It seems to me it’s activities hipsters would like their children to do rather than what children actually a over hyped over priced county fair

Spoke to a vendor that was their and said it’s been worse every year and they won’t be back

Utter shite

We booked for Geronimo next year but just for the day mind

Can’t belive we paid £300 for the whole weekend and we’re back home again already we could of had a extra week at Euro camp for that and had ducking change

Oh no!

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 20:28:42

The kids have not be so Board all summer they even had a better time when visiting my nan at the old people home they just kept saying can we go home now

Sounds utter shit, I don't blame you for leaving.

QuoadUltra Sat 18-Aug-18 20:30:39

I think we are coming out the other side of the festival thing.

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 20:31:45

It looked fab but very much style over substance

And it wasn’t very diverse at all as a mixed raced family I was very surprised

Geronimo is amazing, it’ll make up for it.

Sounds awful, except for the 7 year old old shouting Torys 😂 sod all wrong with that. Festivals can be a mixed bag, we only go to ones recommended by friends or well known ones especially at that price.

You need to switch round the use of "their" and "there" in most of that.

Hilarious! Give that boy a medal.

I'd never heard of the 'Just So' festival, looked it up and it certainly does look great so I can imagine how disappointed you were.

Also didn't know what a 'hipster' was, looked that up and gather it is a perjorative term for people who try to be different.

TheSultanofPingu Sat 18-Aug-18 20:48:45

That seven year old has sense.

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 20:56:23

Well I certainly don’t teach my children to HATE anyone I dare say there answer would be vegetables

But tbh it’s was just induced the whole wanky festival lots of trustafrains who no doubt frequent cereal bars

ShackUp Sat 18-Aug-18 20:59:05

That's the answer I would have given as a 7 year old in 1988

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 21:04:00

Oh dear so just me then who dosent feed their children people to hate confused

Btbh it wasn’t really about that boy the festivalcounty fair was just shit

Bluelady Sat 18-Aug-18 21:06:00

I'd be so proud of that seven year old.

InspectorIkmen Sat 18-Aug-18 21:08:14

You don't feed your children people to hate?

Very wise. Could lead to nasty indigestion.

Saymaname Sat 18-Aug-18 21:09:08

I wouldn’t

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 21:10:06

i will send you the link for the festival seems like you and your family would love it

user1487194234 Sat 18-Aug-18 21:11:16

My children all knew by 7 to hate Tories smile

Bluelady Sat 18-Aug-18 21:11:31

Doubt it, mine are a bit old to be taken to a kids' festival but thanks for the offer.

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 21:12:40

Any small child who answers questions in a poly way has directly feed by their parents

And why would you be proud of your child hating anyone

Tbh if a small child already has people they hate then*you have failed *

If my child came out with I hate vegans or whatever I be very embarrassed tbh

Metoodear Sat 18-Aug-18 21:14:35

fair enough just getting my kid proficient in reading and writing ect don’t have time to teach much about hate tbh were black so their be plenty of time for her to learn about that I am sure

NiceColdOne Sat 18-Aug-18 21:25:26

OP, please use this, it's quite simple.

The festival sounds really disappointing. I would be annoyed in your shoes.

Womaningreen Sat 18-Aug-18 21:25:30

OP wondering what you mean when you say "it wasn't very diverse"?

Website screams "utter hipster nonsense" to me. I thought hipsters were the target market for these events?
