Lovebox - Victoria Park - 18.07.2015

Yesterday was spent at Lovebox in Victoria Park. For the first time ever for me at a festival, there was no rain. I'm probably now going to be cursed with downpours for every other festival I go to. I was volunteering with Warchild (bookmark this page for next year as there are so many good volunteering opportunities) - giving your time and energy to a cause is so much more satisfying than dropping some money into a box. I had an amazing day and met so many awesome people - the situations that the charity and its workers deal with are so removed from my day-to-day life it's almost impossible to imagine.

I had such a blast working with the other volunteers and looking important in my high-vis vest. In exchange for a six hour shift (the time flew by - it was so much fun being outside and talking to people) we got free entry and a free lunch. I was directing visitors on the box office, answering queries and enjoying the best people watching opportunities as the crowds streamed in to the park. Once the shift was over, it was time to enjoy the festival - the park was decked out like a mini-Glastonbury with two stages, a roller disco, a skate ramp, a circus tent and so many awesome food options. I'm definitely starting to become a fan of day festivals - the twenty minute journey home and being able to shower definitely makes up for maybe slightly less of the good vibes and atmosphere that a camping festival has.

  5. Looks so cool! I am not a camping.festival person so to be able to go home to my own bed (and shower) afterwards is a HUGE plus point for me!
    Your meal looks awesome as well.
