People normally associate festivals with fields of Teenagers having fun and watching their favourite bands take to the stage. What about if you are a little more on the mature side as am I and don’t feel you are the right fit for festival life, We’ll don’t despair as festivals here in the UK are not just for the youth but for any age including families with children.

The festival season is here and ready to be enjoyed by all. SunLife has created a useful map about some of the different festivals all over the UK where you don’t have to still be 18 to enjoy.

Here are my Top choices for the upcoming months
The Wychwood Festival this June in Cheltenham has an ideal mix of a fun safe family environment with fantastic music to appeal to any music fans out there. A good mix of acts and music styles make this a great festival for anyone to head along to.
Or if culture and The Arts are more your thing then the Annual SIRF Festival in Durham would be a perfect choice. This is an “outdoor art spectacular”, with circus, dance and art performances, as well as international open-air concerts. The festival first started in August 1988 and this will be its 27th year. You will be able to explore a diverse culture of carnivals and arts.
The Gwyl Machynlleth Festival in Powys welcomes visitors to view the spectacular collection of music concerts, from the finest classical music to exquisite Jazz. The following artists will join the program: from Cymanfa Ganu, with amazing vocals to Budapest Café Orchestra, the UK’s top string quartets.
I would love to hear if you are intending on going to any of these festivals or know of other festivals that are perfect for all ages and families, please comment below if you do!
