WoW Festival, Burston, Norfolk - 29th June - 1st July 2018

It's our first famberly outing to WoW festival, a whole 3 miles away near Wolseley Bridge on the outskirts of Burston in Norfolk - a mile or two north of Diss. It's a late birthday present and turns out to be a really nice festival - a reasonable turnout of people, but by no means too many, plus great weather, good beer and some amazing music. It's all very relaxed, especially as there are never any queues for the bogs and the camp site is a mere 200 metres from the main arena, plus we're camping (in the van) next to Hannah and Ed and their friends, which means that the boys have other children to hang out with.
