We were wowed by Wellies and Wristbands
Guides Francesca, Rosie, Amy and Victoria tell us how you can relax and be yourself at Wellies and Wristbands
You can't get bored here. You make a lot of new friends and have a lot of freedom. It's nice having a festival for people our age that our parents will let us go to!
Wellies and Wristbands is amazing! We don't usually go camping so it's a really good chance to do things we don't often get to do otherwise. It's nice to feel independent and not always have adults with you.
Trying canoeing and goalkeeping
We spent a lot of time on the inflatables – that was one of our favourite bits. We also enjoyed having our hair braided in the chill-out zone and trying out canoeing and tunnelling. We were also part of the FA football skills workshop – we tried out our goalkeeping skills and met women footballers from Reading FC.
Skating and music at night
The GapKids's skate park was brilliant. You don't see many girls doing skating and we thought it was really cool to be taught by female instructors. We loved the music in the evenings too.
Making friends and having freedom
'Normal' festivals have too many older people and are so big that you could get lost, but at Wellies you can do things with people your own age and feel safe. You can't get bored here. You make a lot of new friends and have a lot of freedom. It's nice having a festival for people our age that our parents will let us go to!
