It’s that time of year when we would be packing up our tents and heading to Glastonbury festival!
We’ve have been festivaling at Glasto since 1992. We bought tickets from the little record shop in Bath corridor, no hours of internet queues then, there was no internet! Becki had just passed her driving test and we set off in the brown mini metro packed with everything including the most massive tent! (not realising how far we would have to walk and carry everything) How things have changed since then! Over the years, our group of festivallers grew as the kids came along, and the grandparents joined the fun too. Camper vans replaced the tents, toilets became compostable, ticket sales went online, the Park and the ribbon tower arrived at the festival. Every festival was different, from the music, the entertainment, the kids field, (which became an important stop of the day), and of course the weather. We have survived floods, storms, mud and the heat. All extremes in one day at times! But we always had the most amazing time. Dancing with 1000’s of people, singing at the top of our voices, watching the kids faces light up at the circus tents with the most skilled acts, the food… delicious food, plus seeing some incredible artists perform. We were there for David Bowie in 2000, it was little Millie moon first Glasto at only 6 months old. Incredible moments, amazing memories.
As there is no festival again this year, we have decided to pay homage to our usual pilgrimage by decorating the window in Glasto style!
Becki has made a fabulous colourful patchwork tent for us to camp out in, and of course we are wearing the wonderful buffet dress @fridaypatterncompany wilder gown in pink leopard print double gauze. Plenty of swishing and dancing in that one, (plus you can layer up underneath!)
We also have included trips to the rainbow tower, the pyramid stage and of course the long drops with the amazing cross stitch kits by @thrillingletter
I will be working on my cross stitch this weekend whilst watching old glasto on the tele. Hopefully the sun will shine and We can have a little dance in the garden.
We have also filled the window with photographs of good times at past festivals, if you are wandering past take a look!
How about you? Are you missing the festivals this year??
Maybe you are staging your own festival in the back garden?
Please post your pics on instagram/ facebook and tag us so we would love to see!
Oh to dance and sing again! Hope to see you dancing in a muddy field soon!
