gra, August 2022

iwhilst there are people who will say they enjoyed it if all you want to do is sit and watch music and drink beer then they probably did overall it was Badly managed, badly run, zero hand washing facilities, no supervision, all site etiquette and rules were disobeyed more emphasis on sitting watching music drinking vast amounts of alcohol than anything else some poor quality flimsy tents which could of been a danger, no site of any organisers clearly not bothered after they have taken the money, kids running round behind traders tents from the campsite most traders ignored entertainers who went to the trouble of putting on shows largely ignored in favour of consuming vast amounts of alcohol and badly set out with no thought to traders. All in all shocking

Being on my own, I don't get to go out much but I went to this festival in Summer and took my dog. Although my dog is a rescue and doesn't socialise much it's surprising how many people I got talking to. I didn't feel lonely once, we made lots of furry memories there.

Cerys, September 2019

What a great weekend we all had, me and my furbabies. We travelled down from Aberavon and stayed all weekend. The sun was shining but not too hot for my babies, there was so much to do . Beer, food and live music with my girls. Triffic!
