I find myself in slightly alien territory: writing about something as cool as a festival is slightly out of my comfort zone.
You see, if truth be told, I am a festival virgin.
I have watched my friends anticipate ticket realise dates for the likes of Glasto and Reading, and always wondered what the attraction was. A boozy mud bath? Festivals were not featuring high on my list of must-dos.
However, and it’s a big however… what about a festival for a day? No tent required. A festival that you needn’t find a babysitter for because your children are actually the guests of honour? A festival that doesn’t need a nose peg to avoid 3 days post shower bods. But a festival that still appreciates a grapes nectar… Hmmmm.
My ears pricked up:
(Usually sentences I utter like this don’t include an ‘N’. But I was willing to hear more…)
On Sunday 18th June we have been invited to find our Festival mojo at the renowned ‘Funk The Family’ festival in Hove Park. I’m going to admit it – I can’t wait! The line up looks epic, and best of all, once you are there the endless list of children’s activities are FREE. Hallelujah!
I can spend the day just saying ‘yes’. Instead of consoling 2 distraught children whose lives depended on One.Last.Go.
Here’s an idea of the huge array of kids stuff going down:
Cirque Du Funk, Golden Lotus Fencing, Clown Zaz, The Circus Project, Tree of Life, The Amazing Art Cart, Story Tent, and Micro Scooters Wacky Races. To name but a few.
I am clueless when it comes to the world of Music, but I am assured that the line up will ensure plenty of dancing ‘Mum n Dad style’. Well, I can’t argue with that.
For more details please visit the Funk The Family website, and of course to snap up those last remaining tickets!
