The ilovegorgeous festival guide...

It may be August but the summer is still jam-packed full of wondrous events and festivals tailor-made for families. Marvel at jaw-dropping circus acts and dragon parades, explore enchanted woods and get involved in unique workshops like how to build homes for fairies! To make it easy for you we have picked our favourite family-friendly festivals, all coming up in the next month…Happy Glamping!

This imaginative festival has a “Run away from the circus” theme this year with live acts, trapeze lessons and a Circus Smell Safari. The best part is that under-13s get in absolutely free. 

This is a boutique musical festival with an avalanche of activities to keep you and your little one entertained. Head to the Upper Kid’s Garden to find lessons for budding ballerinas or to learn a circus skill. We think the magical backdrop of Lulworth castle couldn’t be more perfect for this year’s fancy dress theme, Fairytales. 
For some glitter and sparkle whilst you're there we recommend the show stopping ilovegorgeous Serpentine Skirt.


Green Man, Glanusk Wales, 15th- 18thAugust

This festival is located in the stunning Black Mountains in the Welsh wilderness and is guaranteed to unleash your free-spirited Pocahontas. Children can join in eco workshops such as forest cooking in the Enchanted Woodland. 

No accessory captures the hippie spirit more than our beautiful Rose Headress, the finishing touch to your girl’s festival outfit.    

Shambala is a child-friendly festival with a wild side! Over this year’s August bank holiday Shambaholics will flock to a magnificent secret location in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside to dance at the Shambala Carnival, or to relax and listen to bedtime stories with a cup of cocoa in the Family Camping Yurt.

The UK’s favourite TV chef, Jamie Oliver and Blur bassist Alex James, present this unique celebration of food and music. Keep little ones entertained and venture to The Little Dude’s Den, a vintage fun fair or get seriously creative in the Big Feastival workshop and of course enjoy lots of scrummy food and some seriously cool tunes.

The ilovegorgeous festival wardrobe 
Many of our summer pieces are inspired by woodland and wild flowers, which capture the ethereal spirit of the summer festival season. Whether it’s a whimsical tiered dress or an ice-cream girl playsuit you're after, ilovegorgeous has everything your little festival-folk could wish for. Start their festival wardrobe here: 

Here are our festival essentials:

Baby Hat - Pink Tulip Print
Sunscreen and sun hats - with the summer sun looking to last a wee bit longer this is top of the list 
Wet wipes - absolutely essential, we need not elaborate! 
Umbrellas/ wellies (one can never be sure)
Ponchos and waterproofs (hopefully you won't need to use!)
Zip lock bags - always handy
Anti-bac handwash...
Torch -  (pack a spare battery too) for navigation when the sun goes down
Toys - keep little ones entertained in between all that entertainment!
Blanket - even a festival-goer needs a snooze
A pair of funky child-friendly headphones (so they aren't left with music ringing in their ears for weeks)
Pack some of their favourite snacks - just incase, although festival foodie-fare has come along way!

Crafty Tip: Make your own fluorescent flags, they are a great way to locate each other
