Summer Vibes Festival at Uckfield (E. Sussex)

At Uxford Field, behind Tescos, 15th July 2006

I’ve just got back, but it carries on till midnight, so get yourself down there – there’s still time! I think it’s fantastic that a group of young people have put together a free festival and today it really did have the perfect summer vibe. Just the fact that it was totally free was amazing – I really do hope the group called The Young Ones continue this year after year.

There was a small stage for the bands – and the ones I heard were pretty good (especially Chia Chia), another set up at the back of the field which I think was being called the acoustic tent, and if I’m honest, there wasn’t a lot else. I’m surprised there weren’t more craft stalls, as that was what I mainly went for – I doubt the pitches cost too much so I thought it would be perfect. I bought a lovely Perusian necklace for only £4 – bargain! (So craft stall holders – sort it out for next year!)

There were a couple of chill out tents – the Sky tent being full of cushions and mattresses and a bunch of teenagers rolling all over them! An African themed tent, and African food. The best place for kids was at the top of the field at the Art tent – full of crafty things that my kids loved – especially decorating cakes.

But mainly it was a really chilled out atmosphere and the place was full of cool and beautiful people.

Glastonbury Festival – the calm before the storm
June 17, 2016
Strictly speaking, it was after the storm as there literally was thunder and quite a lot of rain a couple of hours before we went into the Glastonbury Festival site yesterday evening, but luckily it stayed dry for the time we were there. (addendum: The day after this, there was a massive storm on Friday as well, so even though I meant the title metaphorically, referring to the festival, it actually turned out to be true to life!) I’ve been running Pilton Youth Club for a few years now, and the festival office kindly let us have a look around. I hope you don’t mind my blog being fairly Glastonbury Festival heavy at the moment! This is mainly a photography post….
Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday
December 7, 2018
The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
The story of the photographs – a walk along the Thames path to Oxford
May 19, 2016
Duck family I was recently lucky enough to have a little break at the Oxford Thames Hotel at Sandford-on-Thames. You’ve probably guessed by now which river I might be walking next to! With no path on the hotel side of the river, I had to back-track a little to cross the bridge at the lock at the Kings Arms where I saw the cutest tiniest little fluffy duckling with a Mummy and two Daddies looking after it! This really started off my walk in a good mood, and I stayed that way all the way to Oxford, even though it felt a lot longer than the three miles it was supposed to be….
Kilver Court Christmas, Shepton Mallet, Somerset
December 3, 2016
There is one thing that I have really missed since moving from Tonbridge (apart from family of course) and that’s a decent place to visit that sells nice Christmas decorations! We used to go to all the nearby garden centres and they’d have masses of Christmas delights to tempt me, but here in the centre of Somerset, there really isn’t a lot to choose from apart from B&Q and B&Ms. So when I saw that Kilver Court were doing a Christmas evening last Thursday, along with mulled wine, mince pies and carol singing, I had to go! ….
