10 tips to survive a Family Summer Music Festival …….

  • take wet wipes, just in case you don’t want to use the showers (or the kids refuse!)…
  • book ‘ boutique camping’, it’s all set up for you and you have posh loos and showers!…
  • take earphones for the little ones (they’re expensive on site and sell out very quickly)…
  • no glass allowed -> take wine boxes and fill your kids school flasks with alcopops (no-one checks them, but make sure the kids don’t take a quick slug!)…
  • tag kids (and husbands), and prearrange meeting times and places.  My goodness, don’t the big boys know how to wander off…
  • quickly locate the Pimms van (instruct the kids that the mummies are likely to be located there!)…
  • take plenty of cash (‘mum, just one more pound please!’ ), particularly for the dress up stuff, and the boden tent…
  • don’t expect to sleep, take earplugs and eye masks and try!..
  • ditch all mobile communications, they won’t work in a field…
  • throw yourself into the spirit, hippy chic meets grunge (by the end of the weekend)…
