Festivals and children

For many people, festivals represent the perfect child-free experience – weekends spent at Glastonbury staying up all night, drinking cheap cider, and collapsing in a muddy tent at dawn for a few hours sleep – the ultimate in lack of responsibility.

When you become a parent then you’d be forgiven for thinking your festival days where behind you.

Nowadays most festivals have come to realize that the family market is huge – there are thousands of families keen to involve their children in the festival experience, and as a result there are plenty of family-friendly opportunities and activities available.

The difference of course is that you have to arrive a bit more prepared, and won’t be able to spend the whole weekend at the cider bus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have just as much fun.
