We’re thrilled to start the new year with news of our first ever festival award!
Festival Kidz, the excellent online family festival guide, felt Elderflower Fields worthy of their Silver award, which is especially gratifying given some of the challenges we faced moving to a new site last year and dealing with torrential rain!
Festival Kidz state: “We considered and rated the festivals in the following categories: Toilets, Camping, Quality of Children’s workshops, Entertainment for Adults, Children’s food options, Value for Money and Green Credentials.
To win a Silver Award, a festival had to be exceptional or good in most categories and may have scored poorly in one of the categories.
Because we considered so many more festivals in 2014, we needed to be harsher at judging them – so some festivals have slipped from Gold to Silver through no fault of their own. All our Gold and Silver winners are wonderful festivals that we highly recommend to families.”
As a small, independent organisation, it’s exciting to be held in the same light as big, established festivals like Camp Bestival and Wilderness. A huge thanks to all who’ve helped develop the festival over the last three years and here’s to a brilliant and sunny EF2015!
