Wellies and Wristbands: Somercotes Guides enjoy UK’s biggest female only music festival
Posted on 10 September 2017
Girls from 1st Somercotes Guides had the time of their lives at the UK’s biggest female-only music festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Members of 1st Somercotes Guides headed to Waddow Hall in Lancashire for Wellies and Wristbands, where they joined thousands of other girls and young women in a weekend of singing their hearts out and dancing as the sun set.
The festival was organised by Girlguiding, and was attended by over 4000 other Guides (aged 10-14) and members of the Senior Section (aged 14-25). It gave the girls; all aged between 10 and 25 a fun, safe and inclusive environment to enjoy all that festivals have to offer; from glittery make-up to making flower crowns to designing henna tattoos.
Attendees at Wellies and Wristbands also had the chance to enjoy some of their favourite songs as performed by acts including Channy Thompson and Call On Sunday.
And the fun didn’t stop at the main stage. Attendees also had the opportunity to try out new adventures on Waddow Hall’s climbing walls, zip wires and slack rope courses to enjoy all the fun and adventure that Girlguiding has to offer.
Wellies and Wristbands provided the perfect environment for girls to explore their independence and enjoy the freedom of festivals in a safe and inclusive environment led by Girlguiding’s dedicated volunteers.
