I am absolutely buzzing for this year’s Common People Festival, with just under 2 weeks to go we are praying for some blue skies and sunshine! This year is going to be hugely different for me, in previous years I’ve partied the night away to Fatboy Slim and Duran Duran, with two drinks in hand, but this year I will be 5 months pregnant and my wristband will read ‘VIP Family Pass’ as I  party the ‘day’ away with my partner and his 4 and 7 year old!

It’s sure to be a different experience this year but something totally new and I’m already noticing things I hadn’t seen from previous years – like the world’s biggest bouncy castle! Not sure if it’s quite appropriate for pregnant women but it does look incredible and how the hell did I miss this in previous years??

I am determined to show you that being pregnant and having kids in tow is just different not a hindrance! I also believe that educating the children about the festival culture is hugely important whilst the UK summer festival season grows every year and it becomes much more part of our culture. I’m certain they will enjoy many festivals in future and this way they can learn about them with us, respect the dangers of such an event and stay safe.

FOOD

One of my all-time favourite parts of any festival is the cluster of food stalls that gather and make you feel like you’re sitting in a Bangkok side street eating fresh noodles or sipping sangria in sunny Barcelona. The collection of world foods is unavoidable and being pregnant only means I’ll have more of an excuse to test each and every one!

Great food from Le Swine in 2015!
