The 2013 UK Festival season is well under way. The number and variety of festivals continues to grow with over 1000 festivals in the UK every summer. Old favorites such as Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds still attract big crowds, with these established music events joined by festivals celebrating the world of comedy, such as Edinburgh Fringe and the inclusion of even more family friendly festivals such as Camp Bestival to offer something for everyone.
There is no doubt that a festival weekend is a highlight of many people’s summer so here are 10 items we’d recommend for adults and children to help make your 2013 festival experience the best ever:
Hunter Lowther Wellies
This entry level Hunter is the festival-goer’s favourite. Using vulcanised natural rubber and a natural cotton lining, the Lowther maintains its strength and shape through long-term use.
Aquapac Camera Case
Designed to fit most small zoom compact cameras, these cases are fully waterproof and also protect from dust, sand and other contaminants. Excellent photo quality is assured above or below the waterline through the use of an ultra-clear optical quality LENZFLEX material.
