Let me paint the picture for you!

There’s a weekend’s worth of food, camping equipment and a few fruit based drinks all loaded in the car. Oh there’s children too, Dottie 3 and Bethany 16 and we were ready to go to Timber Festival.

But the question we all had prior, who had the most fun? YOU DECIDE

For the uninitated, Timber Festival is an amazing Family orientated festival in Derbyshire, aimed at those who feel at one with nature, care for our environment and are open to new cultures and experiences. If you’ve read my previous blogs or saw the pictures from when we went to Just So Festival in 2017,  you’ll know that we love the outdoors. You’ll also know that experiencing new things is in our top 10 things to do and we so did.

Timber Festival felt like a grown up, adult led version of Just So Festival which was absolutely perfect for me. I love Just So Festival so having more adult things to do, amazing real ale’s (shout out to the bar staff), but also real adult themes and talks. It’s not very often that you get absolutely enthralled listening to Phil Jupitus talk about nature, his love of music and hidden beaches in Scotland. See what I mean!

But it’s not just adult only fun, we had everything from hand whittled marble runs that took our breaths away, crazy musicians playing all sorts of instruments both conventional and imaginary, up and coming artists at the stage through to Yoga and audio hypnosis. I know right!

Camping and festival fun is something that can be fraught with difficulties especially when you want to take everything from home with you so you have all the creature comforts. (Mrs P did of course haha). This was an extremely stress free weekend for us. While there was a few hills to navigate through the event, walking was split up with shows, campfires and of course amazing food stalls.

Personally, big shout out to Mr Bushcraft. What other festival will give you a place to learn how to cook on an open fire, creating fire from traditional methods and then get to eat the food after. Winner winner!
