This was our second year embarking on a 4 hour journey to the sunny Dorset coast to spend a long weekend being wild and free, dancing until the wee hours.
I’m so glad we packed like this was a military operation as the good old British weather didn’t disappoint. We had a full weekend of torrential rain and gale force winds. Boy I am glad I bought £10 worth of plastic ponchos from Poundland!
The kids though, they will tell you different. They still loved it, maybe more as they had mud to play in!
My advice to anyone venturing to a festival with kids in tow is this, just go with the flow. Let go of all the rules. Give them neon body crayons and let them draw all over themselves. Let them dive in the mud and splash in the puddles. Feed them lots of churros, it stops them moaning about being wet and cold! Pack for rain, snow and sunshine, and then some. Plus baby wipes, tons of them, that’s all you’ll be washing with for a few days. And be prepared to break your washing machine when you get home!
