Just in case, as of course it's going to be fine... We went in 2005 and 2007 with husband's daughter, then aged around 8 and 10. 2005 was great, as we luckily didn't flood, and after the storm that was a nice year weather-wise. Amazing memories of that year overall. 2007 was bloody hard work, but as she was a sensible kid, and we made sure we enjoyed strategic cider at regular points over the weekend, while it was a real slog at points I don't remember it being too stressful (at least until the hideous coach-queuing fiasco on the Monday that was so awful it put us off going the next year, but that's a whole other thing). Fast forward to now, and having an extremely lively 6-year-old boy, and I am starting to get a little nervous about how to handle a wet one. I have visions of him constantly face planting in mud, which make me twitch but husband seems to think would just be hilarious... or slipping on wooden castles and pirate ships, surely not remotely safe in wet years? Do they just close them? How on earth do you keep kids happy in the event of constant miserable rain, anyway? If any parents have tips or advice for how to survive and enjoy a muddy / wet Glasto, I'd love to hear them! Apart from anything else, ideas on how to manage without wet wipes would be useful! I feel like I'm just getting too old to face a year like 2007 again. Not that it will be, of course (ahem). thanks in advance! x
