folky but modern folky.its pretty small and only in its second year...just right for breaking me in i think.
unfortunately all the camping tickets have sold out so now i have the tedious chore of finding somewhere to stay on the much rather take my tent cos once you are inside it feels like home wherever you are.

its at baskerville hall,surrounded by 'ancient forests',near hay on wye.
apparantly its pretty family hoping that means nice loos

I can't wait to take my two to their first festival! Next year we are going to WOMAD which is World Of Music And Dance. I used to go with friends - sneak in in the middle of the night and sleep on bales of hay!! Think we'll do it the proper way with the kids though!! DP wants to take them to the Fairport Convention - very folky, long running festival.

I think you'll all thoroughly love it

swiperfox, we've been taking ours to Fairport (Cropredy) since they were 2, 4, 6 & 8 (Sadly we now have to pay for them!). We love it

went to see Fairport at a local venue a few months ago..........i'm missing all the festivals this year as my pregnancy has meant they are out of the question.

am looking forward to taking the little one to a festival next year.......but Glastonbury's not on so will have to decide which one to go to instead.....

hi groovers whats the fairport convention terms of size,price, no of days,time of year,location getting a taste for this.would much rather spend my money camping at a festivals over the summer than flying somehwere exotic [mmm...actually dont hold me to that]

all this festival chat is getting me all now thinking about summers well into the future when i have a brood of children and we go camping with friends....camping in a circle...dreeeeamy.

all this ignores the fact that dp doesnt really dig camPing ATALL.

swiperfox you've probably answered your own question with that link! On the Saturday afternoon there is usually an area set up at the back of the field with all sorts of activities- plate spinning and giant dice rolling springs to mind (mine haven't joined in for at least the last 2 years so I'm not sure). Children "fit in" at Cropredy and the other adults tend to be quite watchful of them. The only problem we used to get was once it got dark people walking across the field tend to stand on them if you aren't careful- we got used to rigging up all sorts of barricades once they were too big to put into prams/pushchairs.

lol there's a sub-heading for children on that site and it says to put glow stick necklaces on them so they don't get stepped on lol
