Our Festival Survival Guide

With Glastonbury only five days away and a whole host of other fun festivals coming our way over the summer months, now is the perfect time to pick up the essential items you’ll need to make it through the season in one piece. We’ve gathered together our top picks from our extensive range of clothing and accessories, with styles for men and women all at great prices. Check out our festival survival guide below!

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.

Next week customers can get an extra 15% off top summer staples including Wellies, Raincoats, Backpacks, Summer Hats and Dresses when you spend over £30 by using voucher code VP43JVB7 at the checkout.
