Perhaps you missed out on getting a ticket for Glastonbury or other festivals you were thinking of attending…or perhaps you just decided not to go! There are loads of summer events and festivals to choose from, but they can often be on awkward dates, cost a lot of money, be all the way across the country, or put you completely out of your comfort zone.
For those of you who fall under any of these categories but are worried you might miss out, why not simply host your own!? It’s cheaper, you get to play whatever music you like, create the festive food you’ve been wanting to create all year and it’s right outside.
Here’s our guide to hosting your own mini festival straight out of your own back garden!
Red Tractor’s Top Tips:
- Create some exciting bunting from old scraps of fabric or wrapping paper.
- Decorate the place with fairy lights and candles
- Play games like lawn darts

- Host your own karaoke.
