Best family friendly festivals
From May to September, it's festival season in the UK, and just because you have kids doesn't mean you can't enjoy the music, the food and the great outdoors.
Of course, it's not quite the same vibe as the pre-kids Glasto days – music is much more of an afterthought if the kids are in meltdown mode long before the headliner comes onstage at 9pm. You should also prepare yourself to spend a significant portion of the day queuing at either A) the loos or B) one of the squillions of food trucks.
That said, the family festival experience can be brilliant. You can unleash your wildest fancy dress fantasies, and enjoy watching your kids commune with nature instead of with Fortnite (remember to pack the waterproof all-in-ones). You should also bring ear defenders for babies and younger children, and wear the carrier instead of the buggy – it will be a pain to push in the mud.
