Festival guide 2019

It’s that time of year again. Whilst the weather is grim and we are still in hibernation it doesn’t hurt to think about sunnier times to come.

It’s hard for me not to be slightly biased towards some festivals as I work at them but my favourites are based on my experiences and my sons (he helped with this post) and friends experiences….
