The Festival Guide

Festival season is fast approaching, with just over a month to go until V Festival is here in Chelmsford! Not sorted your festival wardrobe yet?

No worries! We have put together a handy guide of everywhere you’ll need to visit before heading off…

Visit Roman and Warehouse for adding key pieces to your wardrobe – you’ll want to pack for both rain and sun to avoid a fashion disaster. That means packing rain coats, dresses and jeans – a perfect excuse to expand your wardrobe! You could also try our independent retailer Citrus – that way you can rest assured that nobody can copy your outfit.

Don’t forget footwear, which is especially important in the (rather unpredictable) great British weather! Parmar Shoes have something for any weather condition – whether it’s glam wellies to treck around in the mud and rain, or sandals to dance in during a hot summer’s day.


If you’re also looking to up your hair and makeup game, Boots and Superdrug have all the new beauty products to help you look great during festival season. Festivals are all about exaggerated makeup looks – whether you want to rock a rainbow highlighter, smokey eyes or to simply cover your face in glitter, anything goes! Stock up on all your makeup essentials before you go to avoid last minute panic – and don’t forget the makeup wipes!

To get you fully festival ready, Wilko have everything else you could possibly need, from sun cream to sleep bags, travel minis to tents, all the essentials to make sure you’re kitted out.
