Although it’s often hard to guarantee what the weather will do on the day, it’s always best to come prepared for the worst. This Splashmacs Adult Rain Poncho is the perfect remedy to a sudden rainstorm, with drawstring fasteners and a pop stud placket to really keep the damp at bay. Available in a choice of clear PVC or seven vibrant colours, it can even fold away conveniently into a handy carry case when conditions improve.
A sturdy backpack is the best way of keeping your valuables with you whilst on the move, whether it’s travelling to your festival of choice or zipping between your tent and the stage. This Bagbase Heritage Retro Rucksack is a stylish choice for festivalgoers of all ages, and comes with a storage capacity of 18 litres, perfect for holding onto everything from water bottles and umbrellas to spare jumpers and coats.
If you’re planning on camping out during a multi-day festival, comfortable and warm bedding is a must. In addition to sleeping bags and pillows, blankets are a great way of keeping snug and adding extra warmth if needed. With a super soft build and an anti-pilling finish, this Result Plain Outdoor Fleece Blanket is the perfect choice for a great night’s sleep, and comes in a choice of four colours.
Last but definitely not least, the all-important British festival staple; the wellington boots. With thousands of feet churning up the field, wellingtons can be a life-saver if the weather takes a turn for the worst. These unisex Dunlop Wellington Boots are the perfect choice to keep feet warm and dry, and at just £12.20, they’re an effective and affordable option. For those wishing to be a little more adventurous, these Cotswold Ladies Sandringham Wellingtons are a vibrant, colourful choice, with striking pink and purple shades on offer, as well as metallic silver and gold.

Fleece throws are fabulously versatile. Not only can they look great when used as an additional bed cover, but they can also be used as a blanket over the knees, as a shawl over the shoulders to keep warm on cooler day and as a cover when feeling poorly. Kids love having their own special blanket and it can give them comfort when they are not feeling well. Fleecy throws are not just for cold days and sick children, however. They can also be used like a play mat for children as a soft place to sit while they are having fun with their toys or even as a wall hanging to decorate a child’s room.
There is a wide range of fleecy throws available and they are suitable for both boys and girls of all ages. Boys’ designs include football team emblems and superhero images. The Manchester United fleece blanket is 100% genuine official Manchester United merchandise. As it is made from 100% polyester, it is suitable for machine washing, making it easy to clean. It is 240 grams per square metre, meaning it is thick and warm and is sure to be a welcome addition to any bed on a cold winter night.
Designs for girls fleece throws include Disney Princess and High School Musical images. The Disney Princess design would also make a stunning floor mat or wall hanging in any little girl’s room. Made from 100% polyester for easy cleaning, all Disney Princess fans are sure to be delighted to receive this throw as a gift.
