Thursday Glastonbury 2013 Review

glastonbury festival 2013

So the day began hot and sunny. This time prepared for it and did the suncream before leaving home. On site about 11:30am after a lot of faffing about remembering things; but still managed to forget my phone…..

We walked straight up to the Avalon Cafe where Rain’s friends were playing. They’re called The Drystones and were fab. Played folky tunes with a good dancey beat and really got the crowd going. Very impressed and also cool that I saw them in my daughter’s school play before they were famous!

Sat in the shade and chilled for a while, and then went on the big blue helter skelter. Scary climing up – it’s a proper vintage (a polite way of putting it) fairground attraction and I wasn’t convinced of its health and safety credentials. Slid down surprisingly fast too! Then fell over standing up infront of the watching queue – bit embarrassing. Browsed the stalls in the Avalon field and bought a gorgeous dress by Rumplstiltskin in the Speaking Tree tent. Also bought a lovely pocket belt from Devi.

It started to rain gently.

Hungry, so ate an expensive, but delicious chocolate cupcake in the West Holts field, and the rest of the family ate from the free range Burgers, Fries & Bacon Baps place further along. Small burgers for £6, but large chips for £2. After that the family split up and I went off on my own to explore the craft field.

It started to rain a lot.

Determined to do a crafty workshop this year, but didn’t really fancy much. I really want to try nuno felting, but the woman running that one wanted to stop for the day. Annoyed. However, the whole area was much better run this year and impressed with the amount of different things to try. If anyone knows when the nuno felting in the marquee is running, please let me know.
Also far fewer travellers with very little to offer were there this time, so I think they’d been vetted a little more closely. (I wonder if the same is true of the Green Futures field. I’ll check it out at some point.) I may go back and try woodturning a bowl.

Had a peek at the unfairground before wandering slowly back; stopping at Pilton Pasta to eat a carbonara under an umbrella. £5 for a very decent and filling meal and proceeds go to a local hospice, which is even better. Find it at the roadside between Glebeland and Pilton Palais.

Had hoped to do the nightlife today, but didn’t feel like it in the rain, so went home about 6:30pm. Hope the weather does get better as the kids stayed to meet up with friends.

Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
Review of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London
A review of Agatha Christie’s play, Witness for the Prosecution, at County Hall, London
April 28, 2018
It was my birthday last week. And it was a big one. The kind with a zero. The weekend afterwards I celebrated with my family (which was lovely – look out for the vlog coming soon!) and I’m in the process of organising a day my friends are free at the same time to celebrate with them (I am determined to milk this for as long as possible!), but for my actual birthday day, I wanted to do something special. All the time the kids were young, I hardly bothered celebrating my birthday, but although we have had a couple of days out in more recent years, this time I really wanted to make it count. So, I went online to see what theatre productions are on in London at the moment. I’ll be honest, I wavered and nearly didn’t bother with the whole idea because my god, it’s expensive isn’t it? And why can’t they tell you the price of tickets until after you’ve given half your personal details, chosen the date and studied the seating plan?! We were also limited by the type of thing we’d all be interested in. Something we’d all love is of course The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, but at £1160 for the four of us to see both parts that day, we decided our Harry Potter fan-ship can be shown with Primark mugs and slippers (that wear through in 3 weeks) instead! However, something else we all enjoy watching on the telly together is Agatha Christie adaptations, and when I found out that Witness for the Prosecution was being played in an actual courtroom, that tipped the balance over Mousetrap (which I’m pretty hopeful will still be on for my 50th birthday!) and I booked the tickets….
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
