Mind boggles that they find it fun to be cold, muddy, etc for a whole weekend, I cant think of anything worse! Oh to be young and so invincible... those were the days!

My youngest is talking about going to Reading festival this year... I am not keen to be honest, he is 17 and its a long way from home.

My daughter is saying she is going- becasue her 'friendship group' (in our day it was 'mates') are all going after doing their GCSEs. Fortunately not stopping over but coming home each day, but cannot say I am happy- it is full of drugs.

My DDs first trip to Reading was at age 18. We live a fair way from there and I felt pretty uncomfortable if I'm honest. It didnt help that the first year she went a lad OD and died in the silent disco. They were all in there at the time. It shocked them all. DS asked if he can go this year hes 17 soon the answer was no from me. Unfortunately despite checks yes there are a lot of drugs at festivals.

From what I was told by a colleaugue, I would be very sceptical of the supposed 'checks'.
