Ive taken mine to the Big Chill a few times and I reckon you're always best off in the family field...people (alright, me) do stay up boozing but it tends to be a bit more sedate than in the other fields by all accounts. Also when your dcs get up at crack of dawn everyone else's kids are as well so you don't get Kid Shame...
Bet you'll all have a fantastic time- specially since your kids are big-ish. Have fun!
Yes there are tickets available, and some on Ebay too, but funds are low and dh is working until 10pm on the Friday and starts again at 4am on Monday so I would have to go alone with the dds who are 4 and 2- a little too ambitious for me!
But, you have SO done the right thing with the comfy crappers- they had similar loos to these at Camp Bestival a few weeks ago and they were the highlight of our festival!
def family field. much more chilled and everyones kids amuse each other.
we have just found out we are entitled to use the disabled camping at the wickerman which we go to every year, will be very useful with 5 month old baby next year. am hoping it will be family camping with higher toilet to people ratio!!!
Croissant Neuf summer party in Usk(www.partyneuf.co.uk)is very small very green and exceptionally family friendly. No need for a family field as parents are pretty much in the majority-apart from music, there is a chance to make a lantern and take part in the fire procession up into the woods, a treasure hunt,sports including parachute games, a pub quiz...and the word is that the Beat- who were there this year and fantastic- will be back... there are only a few hundred people onsite not thousands so you get up close to whatever is on.Fantastic loos too. Mine never ran out of loo paper.
