  1. Just picked mine up....first time in a campervan as well. Definitely echo the message about understanding the size and difference of the thing. I had a good hours drive to get mine home to pack up, the breaking difference between my car and the camper was crazy!!! Go steady.
  2. Will be in West...first time in a campervan.. we are bringing our 5 year old and 2 month old (first time with kids as well) so thought the campervan option would be best...planning on getting there around 4pm ish!! Does anyone know if this will be a very busy time? Definitely BBQ and beer time...be lovely to meet the new neighbours
  3. My wife did it pregnant (24 weeks) in 2013, she had a great time. We put some extra effort into making the camp as comfortable as possible and got a new tent that we could stand up in. We limited the amount we did and stayed longer at areas when we got there. Chair was essential! She managed the headliners every night and then was done in! I did pull the pregnant card a few times when there were big ques at toilets and when space got a bit cramped!
  4. I’m in the campervan field this year for the first year (campervan West) and planning on getting down for around midday on the Wednesday...I know a lot of people mention getting into the campervan fields on the Tuesday..will getting there on the Wednesday effect much for me?? Will I be positioned miles away from the entrance gate for example??
  5. Oh no....that’s a bit of a pain!! I was up front with where I was going and as you say I think it’s better like that!! I did notice on my rental that they already indicated that festivals were ok (I am not sure if you can filter options like this on the website?) I would suggest searching different areas to widen your reach maybe somewhere on route to Glastonbury??
  6. No worries...hope you get something sorted
  7. PS I only booked last week and there were loads of options!
  8. I will be going in a camper van this year for the first time due to us expecting a new addition to the family in 6 weeks...so didn’t fancy taking a young baby with everything they need and camping...as I started looking prices were way more than I thought they would be! I have ended up using these https://www.camptoo.co.uk/ where you rent the camper off an individual rather than using a rental company....it was a 3rd of the price I had found anywhere else!!
  9. Been really good reading this...my second child is due on the 3rd of April and we have been lucky enough to get tickets....In the past we have always used Glastonbury as a chance for our first one to have some dedicated time with his Nan (as she lives in Spain) and a chance for us to cut loose...as the new addition will be so young and the effect being away would have on routine and breastfeeding etc we are planning on taking the full troop....now I just need to weigh up the best way to do it...we have always camped with a large group of friends (who were all lucky enough to get tickets again) so do I stick with them or try for campervan tickets (if I can find a campervan) or possibly family camping??

    Zorb football activity

    It's on all day ( not sure when it finishes for the evening) Wednesday and Thursday...I'm not sure exactly where it is situated but I will try to find out. It's a great laugh... the main reason I brought it up was I'm not sure anyone who has had a go realises it's for a charity that does much needed and great work! I would be up for a pre efest meet up kick around

    Zorb football activity

    Yer, they set up a big inflatable area for the pitch and people get in zorb type balls and off they go... I can not recall the exact location just that it's around the T&C fields area... it's free to have a go they just ask for a donation... great guys and a good laugh
  13. Have many people managed to see the zorb football type activity run by the StreetGames charity? If you haven't it's up near the T&C fields on the Wednesday and Thursday...I do a bit of work supporting the charity and they are do great work...over the past 12 months they have been focusing on trying to end holiday hunger, it is a very real issue that young people who get free school meals during term time often go without food during holiday periods. This problem effects so many families with the young people effected going back to school undernourished and nowhere near in a position to learn and develop... they are not able to push the fundraising element of their work at the festival, but if you go and enjoy the activity please drop them a few quid if you can, it will change young people's lives

  15. Came directly from Spain in 2010 with friends bringing my stuff....tent arrived and was set up but everything else was in a car arriving Thursday....it was so hot I wasn't bothered until the sun went down and it was freezing...bought as many blankets as I could find.....still use a lovely pink frog blanket regularly
  16. Camped in Pylon or Darble for last few years. Loads of room, very friendly and easy to get in anytime. The distance is not much of an issue, walking is par for the course, although it is a long way from the SE corner. Worth considering that it's pretty much a once your out your not popping back situation, if that's not a problem for you I would recommend it.
  17. 2010 was my first and I had no problem with the dust at all...from memory the only slightly dusty areas were around the entrances and coach drop offs
