Review: Victorious Festival 2021

We dipped our toes back into festival life at the beginning of the summer at Camp Bestival and it felt almost back to normal after a year of lockdowns and restrictions. Victorious Festival was held at on the Friday / Saturday and Sunday of August bank holiday weekend at Southsea seafront Portsmouth. This year was slightly different, for obvious reasons, as we had to show proof of a negative lateral flow test before entry, which meant a bit more queuing than normal, but everyone seemed in good spirits and were just looking forward to getting inside.

Review: Camp Bestival 2021

We have been attending Camp Bestival for the last 8 years and were waiting on tenterhooks to see if this year’s one would be going ahead, after last years cancellation due to COVID. It was a nervy wait, as the easing of lockdown restrictions was delayed, but on 19th July, things finally went our way and Camp Bestival was GO! Camp Bestival is a family festival held at Lulworth Castle in our home county of Dorset. It is set mostly outside, with a few tents hosting indoor shows and activities, which made us feel more confident in attending. Entry requirements …

Our highlights of Camp Bestival 2018!

Well what an adventure Camp Bestival 2018 was! This was our 6th year at Camp Bestival, our first one being 2013 when Sebby was just 6 weeks old, and is now an annual event we look forward to every year. Last year was our first wet Camp Bestival, enduring thick mud and torrential rain but this year our worries turned to how the kids would cope with the heatwave conditions. Thursday We arrived at Lulworth Castle to set up our tents on the hottest day of 2018 so far and were lucky to find our preferred camping spot still available. …

Roll on Summer: Sun Lounger Trolley

Living in Bournemouth we spend a lot of time at the beach. Some of our visits are spontaneous where we arrive with nothing with us, but mostly it is a planned excursion complete with a beach tent, picnic, buckets and spades, games and swimwear. Most of the beaches are accessed via a zig zag walkway from the cliff top and now Sebastian no longer has a buggy to balance everything on, it can be quite a challenge to take everything down to the beach, especially if I am on my own with the kids. I have found the answer: The …
