We always love reading the blog reviews after Just So. Every family that comes has such a different experience, exploring and loving different areas and activities. It’s wonderful to read about parts of the festival that we didn’t get a chance to spend much time in. Here is our round up of our favourite blogs and online reviews of this year’s festival…
Bambino Goodies, Just So Festival 2012
“Much of the magic of Just so is just that: magic. They create an environment where simply anything could happen. The Gruffalo walks past as you buy your morning bread, a giant bird strolls through the festival and The Dream Catcher comes to visit you as you have your breakfast. “ Click here to read more and watch the lovely video too.
Mummy Whisperer, Is this potentially the best family festival in the UK?
“The details made the experience great from the decorative chairs hanging from tree branches too Fairy dresses floating in the woods. “ Click here to read this massive review with input from lots of different families.
Muddy Little Boots, Just So Festival
“The whole festival is jam packed with activities designed to get kids imaginations firing and their hands [faces and knees] dirty. The trees were adorned with brightly coloured chairs, huge clocks, magic wands, lanterns, bunting and flags. There were big games to play like hide and seek and a small cinema to relax and watch a film in. Dads could release their inner boy scout and help the little ones build a den from sticks and ferns (or anything else you could find in a forest), find bugs and sing songs around the camp fire. You could hitch a ride around the world on the Submercycle.” Click here to read more.
Artful Activities, Summer Festival Arts Activities
“A particularly creative festival, in it’s widest sense, with all manner of arts activities on offer, from music and theatre, to writing and dance, all set amongst quirky staging aimed at stimulating children’s imagination.” Click here to read more.
