This August bank holiday I took seven of my wonderful Guides from my unit down to Foxlease in the New Forest for the Wellies and Wristbands festival with my Best friend. It was their first ever Guide Camp where they could sleep in a tent, go off and do activities independently and then listen to amazing bands and artists in the evening! The bands performing this year were incredible and we were lucky enough to see My Forever, The Hara, Taken, The Shades, HRVY along with many other artists. Roadtrip also closed the show on the Friday night when I was lucky enough to get a picture with them. They then came back to perform again on the Sunday and again I got to talk to their manager Blair and then chat with the boys again (mostly Mikey as he is my favourite). The boys are just so down to earth and normal and that is what I love about them. The Roadtrip boys really know how to put on a show and entertained the crowd so much on both of their performances. The girls were louder on the second time round because more of them knew who they were. My Forever performed amazingly well on the Saturday evening and unfortunately they were on an early slot so there wasn’t as big of a crowd but, again I got to have a chat with them and got a picture with two of the members who were such lovely guys!! Taken and The Shades also performed incredible sets that the crowd loved but unfortunately I was unable to meet them! My bestie and I also made some new friends in a ranger leader from Somerset and two Guide leaders from Bournemouth who were absolutely lovely ladies and I truly hope we are able to stay in contact with them! I had an absolute blast this bank holiday but it is now nice to be in the New Forest cottage with my family!
