Our First Family Festival Experience: The Big Feastival 2018

Our family loves good food, hubby used to be a chef at a 5 star hotel in London, and we have always wanted to go to a festival, so The Big Feastival seems like the perfect place for us.

Next weekend, from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th August, we will be attending our first ever festival and we will be camping for the very first time. We are all looking forward to it as we have heard so many great reviews about The Big Feastival. You can see what we get up to over the weekend by checking our Instagram stories @LilinhaAngel.

The Big Feastival site is on Alex James’ Farm near Kingham, Oxfordshire, OX7 6UJ. Kingham is a village in the Cotswolds about 4 miles southwest of Chipping Norton. When I explained to little man that we would be staying at the festival over the weekend, he couldn’t hold his excitement. We thought we were only going for the day!

I cannot wait to see little man’s face when we get there and get our tent up. I am not sure how camping will be with a baby, but I am sure we will manage. Our tents and sleeping bags are ready, we just need to test them before we go. Hubby had a brilliant idea and he is planning to sleep in the garden with little man to make sure that we know what to do on the day. I will be watching them from the bedroom window!

The Big Feastival line up so far looks fantastic, in all aspects: music, food, drinks and family entertainment. We will be singing along to Craig David, Professor Green and Rak-Su, while checking out Michelin Star chefs Marco Pierre-White,Raymond Blanc, Pierre Koffmann, Mark Hix, Ashley Palmer-Watts, Glynn Purnell and Merlin Labron Johnsonon The NEFF Big Kitchen. 

There are so many food and drinks options to choose from: The Collaboration Kitchen, Friday Night Supper Club, Street Food Alley and Alex James Cheese Hub to name a few.

I am sure we won’t be bored while we are there as Justin Fletcher, Andy & The Odd Socks, Peppa Pig, The Gruffalo and others will be present. 

As we have never been to a festival or camping before, we would love to hear your tips.

What should we take? What are your top tips?
