Camping, glamping, caravanning

Our garden festival #biglittletentfestival15

This bank holiday weekend was a bit of a departure for the Tin Box household. Instead of taking away our caravan we threw up a tent in the garden instead.

It may have just been a beach tent but it was a tent no less and allowed us to take part in the Caravan Club and Woodland Trust’s first ever Big Little Tent Festival.
The aim was to encourage families to step away from their tech and enjoy some good old fashioned outdoor fun. We do this a lot in Tin Box but with a rare bank holiday weekend at home it was a novelty to give it a go in our own back garden.
With a beach tent rather than a proper waterproofed version we were never going to be able to camp out properly, but a lot of people did. It was fun following their back garden adventures on Twitter and Instagram.
Our Big Little Tent Festival included a teddy bears picnic and treasure hunt. Tin Box tot helped to prepare the treasure hunt map but was still a little too young to understand how to follow it to find her treasure. Never-the-less she had fun being outdoors.
Here’s a few pictures from our garden festival:

Disclosure: I came across the Big Little Tent Festival online and loved the idea so much that I decided to write about it here. I haven’t been asked promote it but I was sent a festival pack by the friendly people at The Caravan Club. All views are my own.
