Top 10 Tips for packing for BIg love festival
We always suggest to write packing lists for tent equipment, food stuffs, clothes and toiletries, it can be easy to miss out some glaringly obvious necessities without one!
Top of our list is the Full Circle Eco-friendly Hygiene Kit packed in a handy cotton bag to hang it in, our finest eco-friendly planet positive products are all sustainably sourced and either reusable, recyclable or biodegradable. The citrus smelling no rinse body wash is used alongside the eco towel and exotic dry shampoo to wash without running water so you can keep clean from the comfort of your tent or skip the shower queue. The unisex deodorant, fresh mint toothpaste, bamboo toothbrush, antibacterial hand gel and loo roll will look after the rest.
Always prepare for rain or shine and don’t forget your suncream. You don’t want sunburn to get in the way of your woodland raving.
Big Love are big on going green so plastic based glitter is a big no no and so are single use plastics from food vendors - they are banned on site. Help this awesome festival with reducing their environmental footprint where possible.
Please do not bring or buy plastic water bottles, but do keep hydrated! Take your reusable bottles and refill where you need them, we love Raw bottles and encourage all festival goers to use refillable solutions!
Glass is not permitted and alcohol can only be taken onto the festival site on first day of entry. One crate of beer / cider / ale (12-18 Cans)or one 70cl bottle of spirit or two bottles of wine (or your own magic potions) and they ask that you don’t bring your own drinks out of the campsite area – the venue has its own bars and it is likely to be confiscated by security.
BBQs and campfires are not permitted due to safety reasons but small camping stoves are should you wish to cook some of your own food, we’d suggest to do breakfast at camp and then sample whats to offer on the estate throughout the day, you won’t be disappointed.
Bring wellies AND flipflops! You never know with the Great British weather so dress for any eventuality and layer up.
Help find your way in the dark with solar lights for your tent and for those night time toilet trips a head lamp comes in ultra handy.
There is a cash machine on site but it charges a small fee and is liable to run out - take enough or be prepared to journey into town!
And our top tip of all…..? relax and prepare to lose yourself in this MAGICAL weekend of escapism.
