So, we had a lovely invite to go to a music festival called Livestock a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to stay over and do some glamping but I’m afraid Mrs H wasn’t going to have any of that. It’s a pity because we walked through the camping area on the way into the festival and it looked really great. Far enough away from the music to get a decent night’s sleep but close enough to stagger back after a few of the lush cocktails available.
Back to the beginning…..
I guess I’m not your usual festival goer but this sounded like fun and is only a short drive away from home on the outskirts of Tewkesbury at Manor Farm, Longdon. It’s a bit of a bumpy ride along the farm track but the view of the festival and the surrounding area was stunning.
Livestock is only in its second year, but it’s obviously becoming a great success. The Woodland Stage is a new addition this year in, as the name suggests, an idyllic woodland setting with some great music from up and coming talent such as Lila J and We Signal Fire. Evenings were transformed into a silent disco. Also on offer here is a bar serving Wobble Juice and Slush Puppies and The Boho Boutique. I could have spent all day here!
So on to the main arena.
Apart from the main stage, so much to see and do. Great food trucks and stalls and amazing things for kids to do and another stage.
Just a small part of the great food and drink tents and trucks available
Great activities for kids in a beautiful open space.
So to the main stage where the Mrs had a great relaxing time sitting on hay bales with a glass of vino and listening to the likes of The Bengal Lancers.
There was some mega music over the 3 days which included Reef, The Fratellis, Reverend and The Makers, Chesney Hawkes and Jason Donovan bringing the festival to a conclusion on Sunday evening.
So next year we will be camping at Livestock! Such a great time and venue!
