5 things to take to your next festival

With festival season well and truly underway, we have come up with a list of essentials to make sure you have the best summer ever…

Posted on June 19, 2018

1. A Good Tent

The pop-up tents available at Ultimate Outdoors are perfect for festival-goers! This Eurohike tent sleeps 4 and will keep you and your festival outfits dry as its even waterproof in heavy rain (the benchmark of every good festival), plus it’s super easy to assemble so you can get straight to partying.




2. Picnic Blankets

On the rare occasion that the sun does shine at a festival, a picnic blanket is a perfect solution to sit outside your tent and soak up the rays. These are from Homesense, and we can just imagine lounging around on one of these at Glastonbury!




3. Bluetooth Speaker

A portable speaker is ESSENTIAL at a festival. When the music stops on stage, you can keep the party going at your tent! Or perhaps some tunes at breakfast time to start off your day? This Sony Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, available at Currys, ticks all the festival boxes. Plus it comes in a range of colours!




4. Dog Outfits

Dog-friendly festival? You’ve sorted your festival wardrobe, but what about your pet pooch? Snazz up their festival look with a fancy collar from Pets at Home! We love these looks, and your canine pal will too.




Whether you’re fuelling up for a long weekend or combating the after-effects of a festival, Costa Coffee is on hand to give you the boost that you need. Try their brand new cold brew for a refreshing take on your caffeine hit!




The really great news? You can get all these festival essentials at Castle Marina Shopping Park… so what are you waiting for? Get packing!
