Family summer events: win a family ticket for the Wilderness Festival


The Wilderness Festival sounds fantastic - family activities; music from Antony and the Johnsons, the Guillemots, Toots and the Maytels (remember them?) and Hayseed Dixie amongst others; outdoor events, art, theatre, food, poetry, yoga, a babysitting service, beautiful scenery and camping. What more could you possibly need for a fantastic family summer event?

Wilderness is a new multi-arts festival set among the parklands and ancient forests of the exquisite Cornbury Estate in Oxfordshire and is being held on August 12-14th.

I was thrilled to be offered a family ticket to attend, but my happiness was short-lived when I realised it clashed with our annual holiday in August. Drat.
But - because I'm such a giving sort of person - I'm offering the family ticket, donated by the lovely people at the Wilderness Festival, to you dear reader.

There is so much going on at Wilderness that I honestly can't cover everything on here - you really need to spend some time browsing their fabulous website to see all of the things on offer over the festival weekend. There's also a Wilderness facebook page.

The family ticket is worth £250 and this covers entrance to the festival and campsite for the whole weekend. It doesn't include any camping equipment.

The family ticket on offer is valid for 2 adults and 2 children, but the very nice Wilderness people have said they will change that to one adult and 3 children for any single parents hoping to attend. And if that's not enough, children under the age of 10 go for free.

I'm gutted that we can't go!

To win my the family ticket all you have to do is leave a comment below with the answer to this question:

Where is Wilderness being held?
1. Strawberry Fields
2. Penny Lane
3. Cornbury Park

Please leave either an email address or twitter name with your comment. Good luck!

Tickets are priced at £250.00 for the Early Bird family ticket (two adults, two children) or single adults for £99.50 for weekend camping, not to mention the fact that children aged 10 years and younger go free. The festival even offers a Boutique Babysitting service.

The competition is open until midnight on Tuesday 14th June 2011. The winner will be chosen randomly by me on Wednesday 15th June. There is no cash alternative. The ticket is for festival and campsite entry only, tents and camping equipment are not supplied.
