Newsletter - 13/08/12

This weekend is our very first (mini) festival at Court Farm Country Park.  We'll be there from 10am on Saturday 18th till 5:30pm on Sunday 19th, with lots and lots to do for the kids, including arts/crafts and dressing up with WsMum Karen B, storytime with Gail Richardson, crazy music from Cosmo 4 Kids, martial arts with Sweat FA and arts workshops with b-creative and B&Q Weston.  All the usual Court Farm attractions are open to all festival goers too!

We'll also have a disco on Saturday night (thanks to Ade from Action Pussycat and WsDad Mark Bradshaw for the equipment).  Phew!  And We're inviting YOU and, ahem, the kids to add your favourite songs to dance to on our collaborative spotify playlist - just put them on and we'll play them!  

And remember, we've got the run of the barn, which is huge and UNDER COVER! 

Camping is, of course, optional - but if you do stay overnight, you get 2 days entry to Court Farm for the price of 1 (camping is only £6 per pitch).  

Please bring your own food and drink, alcohol is allowed but no fires or BBQ's.

We're really excited about this festival - it's quite remarkable when you think that everything is voluntary and we are doing this with no funding or extra charge to families whatsoever.  We welcome your input over the weekend - we'll need help with workshops and making sure it all runs smoothly.  We'll also have a collection bucket for donations - so if you can spare a couple of quid to help pay for the materials we've had to buy, that would be really, really helpful.  Thanks ♥
