Harvest at Jimmy's

Last weekend Chris and I went to Harvest at Jimmy's, a festival just outside Ipswich!! We bought tickets months ago but it had suddenly arrived.

So we packed our coats, camping chairs, blankets etc and set off for a weekend of good music and good food!! And that it was! There was so much for kids too. A whole area devoted to keeping them amused and having lots of fun. We drank well, ate well and enjoyed Jose Gonzales, Seth Lakeman and KT Tunstall especially.

We did have to wait in a queue for an hour for our dinner on the Saturday but we chatted and luckily joined the queue well before I was hungry so it wasn't awful. We packed a picnic tea on Sunday and sat in the car getting warm before going back into the festival for more music and sitting in a field into the night! Even leaving the festival by car wasn't a nightmare and we got to spend the night in a proper bed instead of camping. Much better. It was a rather middle class festival haha! But I think that was part of the beauty.

We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to go again next year! More food stalls though please Jimmy!!
