Campervan heads for festival
We took our VW early bay camper van Betty to a mini festival in Lincolnshire. Thought this picture was great - taken at dusk with the bar and barbecue area visible in front of the big tent.
That night everyone camped over, mostly in tents, but there were a few of us who managed the relative luxury of our camper vans in a quiet corner of the field.
The food was provided by Fosters butchers of Monks Road in Lincoln - freshly prepared burgers and spicy Lincolnshire sausages. We operated two barbecues. One for Caribbean jerk chicken provided by our friend Shannon and the other for the burgers and sausages. The jerk chicken was a real hit and Fosters are always reliable for the other meat.
The high point of the festival was local Lincoln band The Pylons who the previous weekend had graced the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, an altogether larger affair. An enthusiastic crowd bopped away to some of their fantastic tunes.
When the last notes had died down we finished the last of the beer barrels, provided by The Pheasantry brewery, and retired to the comfort of our wonderful VW camper van Betty. We slept soundly and woke up at around 7.30, boiling the kettle for the first cup of tea of the day.
The festival had lined up barbecued sausage and bacon rolls which really hit the spot after a night of partying.
VW campervan Betty is available for hire - the perfect accommodation for festivals, short breaks and longer trips around the UK. If you would like to know more please contact Anne via our contact page.
