You've heard of Glastonbury - now there's Brindleberry! This weekend my brother and niece organised a mini festival to celebrate their milestone birthdays - my brother's 60th and my niece's 40th. It was also the 18th of a friend, who's grand-dad allowed us to camp in his field in Brindle, Lancashire near Hoghton Tower (famous for being the place where Sirloin steak was invented).
The weather wasn't ideal but didn't stop us having a ball - music was provided by various bands, including my niece's husband who did an acoustic set, there was a gun-dog display, a hog roast and a fire juggling display courtesy of a friend's sons and their friends. Even the mud didn't dampen our spirits, in fact it provided lots of enjoyment for the kids (and adults)!
