August this year saw the very first Meraki festival held in St Albans. After a run of successful day events the team behind the festival went all out to bring people a 3 day all inclusive bonanza of camping, family activities and music. The first thing that caught my eye with this festival was the amount on offer for the ticket price, daily activities including baby sensory classes, arts and crafts, soft play, and kiddie raves that ran from 7am till 5pm? that seemed like good value. The headliners? Let’s just say they’re not our usual cup of tea but for the sake of getting to hear some live music and having a Dad dance whilst keeping the little dude entertained, I still thought this was worth checking out. We missed out on Camp Bestival this year but with Meraki having so many family friendly facilities I thought this was a great chance for us to have a practice run for next years season and cut Emerson’s festival teeth.
