With the warmer weather just around the corner, your thoughts may be turning towards hosting an outdoor party this summer, and in fact we have been seeing a trend in mini festival-style enquiries for parties and weddings in the Cotswolds and London.
Maybe your Glastonbury days are behind you, or you don’t want to drag the whole family along for a weekend in the mud, but that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the fun, relaxed vibe that a mini festival event can bring.
Ideal for weddings, birthdays or even as a summer garden party for friends and family, hosting your own private festival means you can enjoy the best (and worst!) of the British summer – think yurts, open sided stretch tents, rustic benches and cow hides, street food and vintage ice cream vans, micro-brewery beer (or gin bars), roving musicians and amazing DJs to see you dancing through the night!
Add in face painters and entertainers for the littlies for a daytime garden party, or an upbeat swing jazz band, and you have a fluid ‘pop in when you like’ party where you can enjoy mingling with your guests without the constraints of a formal sit down dinner.
Dancing round the fire pit later in the evening, your guests may not want to go - luxury bell tents can provide a glamping option for those who just don’t want to leave..
