Husband and I don’t have many things in common. But we both love music. And in the time before we had children, we used to go to gigs all the time and we occasionally went to festivals. Husband still goes to gigs, but I haven’t been to one since our youngest was born almost three years ago. But we think both kids are at an age where they would really enjoy a family festival.
So in May we are heading to our first family festival – Wychwood. Wychwood will be at Cheltenham Racecourse from the 29th-31st May 2015 (its 11th year). There are lots of cool musical acts, including The Proclaimers (who Moozles is beyond excited about seeing), Ladysmith Black Mambazo and The Wonder Stuff Acoustic. The legend that is Justin Fletcher will also be there!!! And for older children, Dick and Dom will also be appearing.
Wychwood also has some cool workshops. You can learn to belly dance and play the ukulele. There will be arts & crafts, a bubble show and a puppet show.
Moozles, who will be seven by the festival, loves to read and will enjoy the Kids Literature Festival. I’m not sure how much Dubz will like this, but one of the authors has a dinosaur book so that might be a big draw. Though I am not sure if he will understand what an author is.
We’re hoping to go on the Saturday (30th May), to catch The Proclaimers. Husband is looking forward to seeing Ghostpoet. And I’ll just be happy to be seeing live music with my family. Will I see you there?
