On BLACKHEATH (SEPT 9-10): The Most Family-Friendly Music Festival Around?

On Blackheath, is this the most family-friendly music festival? FashionBite

Festivals today aren’t what they used to be. Or, more to the point, what I look for in a festival has completely changed. Gone are the grungy, muddy, beer soaked days of hedonism – I can’t imagine anything worse then being trapped in a field with two screaming, tired kids…kind of loses the buzz.

If you can combine two needs though – great live music, food and drink with entertainment for the children and yes…clean loo’s, then it gets a big tick in my box. Also, if you can go for the day..no muddy tents needed..even better!

Step forward: On Blackheath. I first went when Livia was just two weeks old, ear protectors in hand and it was bloody brilliant.

Not only were there no dirty loo’s in sight, but they actually had a baby change area…no knee balancing/juggling action required. Double tick. This was 3 years ago and it offers a whole lot more now.

Food is being curated by Masterchef finalist Tony Rodd and the Chef’s Stage features tips and demonstrations from a variety of culinary experts. Saturday’s line-up includes Jane Devonshire – the winner of MasterChef 2016 – showcasing a range of her favourite recipes.

A specific area for children and families is hosting various entertainers across the weekend, such as Julian Clary. There will also be an adventure area, giant art wall, story telling stage, street theatre and lots more.

And the best bit, it’s in London too. So no long drives, muddy fields and rain sodden kids to contend with. Happy parents!
