Camping in Leicester - Camping in Leicestershire - Summer Sundae 2009
If you’re travelling to the Summer Sundae Weekender festival in Leicester you need to make sure you pack properly as the festival may not have the same amenities as the larger festivals, such as Glastonbury. Travelling down to Leicester to enjoy a weekend of music is a unique experience and one that everyone should try at least once. The beautiful surroundings of the Leicester landscape and the joy of having some of the best up and coming musicians performing for you can only amount to a magical weekend.
Without doubt the most important item to take to the Summer Sundae Weekender, or any other weekend music festival in Leicester, is a small, good quality tent. Cheap tents are likely to leak and you may find yourself waking up in a puddle of water so pay a bit more and get a tent with a rain resistant hydrostatic head of at least 1500 mm. This is generally considered to be waterproof. The higher the rating the more waterproof the tent is likely to be. Make sure you choose a tent that is easy to assemble and try it out in the garden first so you know how to put it together.
Also needed is an airbed, camp bed or roll up foam mat so that you are not lying directly on the ground. A warm sleeping bag is a must as it can get very cold at night even in summer. Outdoor clothing is also a necessity as it is tough enough to survive a weekend festival, but still warm enough to keep you comfortable even at the coldest parts of the night. An extra fleece blanket is handy if you have room to carry it as it is light but warm and you can wrap it round you during the evening concerts if it is chilly.
You will need a lantern or torch (preferably both) and a supply of batteries. It is a good idea to take a small camping cooker and gas canister so that you can at least boil water to make a cup of tea or warm up a tin of beans even if you intend to buy most of your food on the site. Don’t forget to pack a small saucepan and a tin opener. Festival food is very expensive so a few essential food supplies can save you a lot of money.
Other vital supplies are wet wipes to freshen up with as washing facilities are extremely limited, toilet rolls, sun cream and an emergency charger for your mobile phone. Also take wellington boots as even a small amount of rain will result in plenty of mud!
