Why: I love Fairport Convention, but I don’t love festivals. That said, friends liked camping and had two young children, one of whom was my god daughter, and asked if I wanted to join them. I packed a load of weed, and join them I did.

That said, the first night, sitting on camp chairs, smoking fat joints and drinking while watching Supergrass storm through a Diamond Hoo Haa set was awesome.

Drinking: An absolutely wonderful real ale they had. Wish I could remember it’s name…
