Having been to
Having only just returned from our family holiday abroad on the Monday beforehand, I have to say that coming from a sunny 36 degrees to the prospect of a festival weekend weather forecast predicting rain and 16 degrees, I wasn’t filled with instant joy and the thought of spending a couple of nights in our friends kindy lent tent without home comforts was a fall from grace but thankfully the magical family experience we had when attending the previous year meant that I had come to the conclusion that I owed it to Just So to jump into it with two feet as a thank you giving us these memories previously.
And of course Just So Festival 2016 did not disappoint…
This year, unlike last, we attended from the Friday afternoon through to the Sunday ensuring we covered all three days meaning we were able to experience “JUST SO” much more… (see what I did there?) particularly the Spellbound Forest in all its magical surroundings from singing songs around campside fires through to melting marshmallows on sticks, watching intimate fairytale performances with such detailed costumes and treasure hunts too.
As usual the Footlights area produced family friendly, sing along, good vibe kind of music from bands such as Thingamabob and The Thingamajigs (no that really is their name and their songs are incredibly catchy too).
