On Saturday we had a lovely family day out at Lee Fest and it didn’t rain so didn’t need to use any of the tips in my previous blogpost! Only half an hour drive from us in Lewes to Edenbridge, Kent. I wasn’t sure about going to a festival for a day, would we get into it, feel part of it?
Lee Fest is a small intimate festival in a beautiful location. There are a few realms to it where the different tribes hang out. The lagoon and beach for the Mermaids, Skull Ridge for the Pirates and a very cool Neverwoods where we discovered the Lost Boys Den, our favourite little hang out!
My 3 highlights were:
Tommy Ashby – we caught him at the Wendy House and were totally mesmerized by his set. Such a pure and gentle vocal.
The Keston Cobblers Club – I LOVE this band! First discovered them at Glastonbury two years ago. They know how to get the crowd up and at it and twenty minutes into their set on the main Bangarang stage they did just that. Such a perfect band to listen to and enjoy in the sunshine on a Saturday afternoon with a pint!
The Modern Strangers – had a nice little afternoon boogie to this brilliant new music discovery in the Tootles Circus Tent.

We didn’t stay into the evening so did miss a lot of the later shenanigans which was a shame as I would have loved to check out the Gentlemen Starkeys Cabaret club of comedy, spoken word, debates and burlesque. However, in answer to my earlier question: Is it worth going to a festival just for a day? A: Absolutely! and if you buy tickets early enough it makes for such a good value day out
We used our day out as a taster for next year when we’d definitely go for the whole weekend but probably without the kids so we can properly cut loose! 😉
