The hen party

The girls and I decided to go to V festival for the hen as none of us had done a full festival weekend before. My bridesmaids organised the whole trip and whisked me away for a weekend of camping, mud, no sleep and of course music!

We arrived at midday and the campsite was already busy, the rain had just started as well so at least we knew that we were going to get an authentic festival experience! After walking for what seemed like miles with all our stuff we began to set up camp in a rather boggy part of the field (there was not much choice left). Being the least practical one, I was sent back to the car to pick up the rest of our supplies whilst the girls battled with Chris’ large 4 man tent which he had entrusted me with for the weekend.


After finding our way around the festival site and spending some time attempting to win a large stuffed crocodile to be our mascot for the weekend (we did not win him), we settled in to our first night camping. As none of us had been before, we did not realise that the red camping zone was known as the site that never sleeps and indeed it really does not! Next time I think we will try yellow, we are now too old for the 72 our red campsite party…


What an amazing line up for this years festival!

Justin Timberlake, Ed Sheeran and The Killers to name a few and even the All Saints made an old school appearance. An unforgettable weekend with my best friends. Now that is what a hen party should be about!

Just a shame Chris’ tent never made it through…
