Victorious Festival 2016
Last Summer Tom and I went to our first music festival, which luckily for us was right on our doorstep! We were more than happy to go to a festival that didn't involve any porta-loos, mud or camping in a field - so I'd recommend Victorious Festival if you're like us!
What I liked about Victorious Festival was that it was on the seafront (always a winner), there was loads of choice of food stalls, and there was lots of little stands to explore - from homemade furniture, to clothes, to handmade beauty bits - the works!
We came across a company called Morning Wood Co (yes, we laughed too) and I fell in love a little with their rustic, bright, hand painted bits of furniture. Unfortunately none of it came home with us - I couldn't quite convince myself (or Tom!) that it was worth lugging a load of wood back to the car.
Probably a wise choice.
It was a very hot day - so after feeling slightly sweaty for a couple of hours, we rewarded ourselves with some grown-up drinks... In the form of slushies!
After a day at Victorious Festival, we decided that it wasn't really our cup of tea - we aren't the biggest fans of live music, there was a lot of people around, and lots of queues for each stand. To top it all off, the price of Pimms was a little bit ridiculous (And we all know that's very important!). However, it was a fun day out, and I'd recommend it to someone local to the area looking for a good day out - it just wasn't for us!
Now, I WILL say that we do like one kind of festival - and that's a food festival. Stay tuned to find out about our first visit to a food festival!
