Glastonbury packing list

glastonbury festival - a packing list

It is packing weekend for Glastonbury festival. I have the luxury of not needing to pack since moving so close, but I came across my previous packing lists and I thought they might be useful for those going to festivals this year. Or even just camping. So here it is…

  • Small torch

  • A dry set of clothes to leave in the car so you can drive home dry

Additional extras

With kids

  • Roll-up ground sheet with carry bag. (To spread over mud so they can crawl/sit and play when you’re watching bands)
  • A bag they can carry themselves
  • Small activities to keep them amused when you’re watching bands or talking to friends. Eg. Bubbles; small books; small colouring or activity books; little cars etc.
  • Identity tags or bracelets with your mobile number
  • Sunhat
  • Radio flyer type wagon/Woody wagon/Garden cart for you to pull them around in, along with blankets, cushions, sunshade/rain cover, plastic windmills etc.
  • (I haven’t done a list for babies because it’s been a while since I had them and equipment has changed so much!)

Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
The Story Behind the Photographs – Morvah mine
October 8, 2016
Chris and I took two days off work before the bank holiday weekend, and drove the camper-van down to Cornwall. We had three nights and four days away altogether and in that time we saw Jeremy Loops play at Perranporth; met up with family; took several photos for Oshun and for the blog (such as the one at the top of this page); relaxed a bit, and even found time to take some photos just for the fun of it. The great thing about wild camping is that you can wake up right next to the most wonderful wild places, including this ruined tin mine. One of my favourite photos from the day I chose to have blown up and printed onto canvas for our living room. It was a beautiful morning and the pathway towards the sea was just magical….
3 days in New York
3rd and final day in New York + Review of The Wyndham New Yorker Hotel
May 22, 2017
Our third day was only just over half a day really as we had a train to catch late afternoon to take us to Washington DC. So as this is a shorter post, I thought I’d include a quick review of the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel and my overall opinion in visiting New York. There were no bus tours this day, but we took an Uber to see the Grand Central Station, and it really is not one to miss on your places to visit list! We ate breakfast in form of cookies in a cafe there called Zaro’s, and they were the most delicious cookie and chocolate chunk scone I’ve ever tasted in my life. Then we spent a while taking photographs….
