The Tales of the Enchanted are awakening, which means it’s time to pick your most imaginative costume and head over to UK’s most eccentric four-day summer festival. Standon Calling Festival is a family-fun event and offers something for all. The festival features on-stage entertainment ranging from music to comedy, and a wide range of off-stage entertainment including an onsite pool, boutique camping, pampered pooches, and a costume competition for all ages. With all this magic in the air. We have some Pro Tips on how to make the most of it.
1. Dress to impress
The characters and creatures of the Tales of the Enchanted are what the festival is all about! Bring all your fairytale and folk to the costume parade on Saturday, July 29. And, there may just be some extra special recognition for the winner of this year’s massive costume competition.
2. Group discount
Your festival experience is really created by the people you spend it with. If you’re planning on coming in a group of 8 or more, take advantage of this group discount.
3. Bring your pooch!
Claimed as the most dog-friendly festival in the UK, it would only make sense to bring your furry-family member along for the weekend. Participation for all is welcome, which is why there’s even an annual dog show for pups of all shapes and sizes. You never know, you could end up leaving the weekend with a whole new prized possession.
4. Embrace you wellness
Let go of your day-to-day routines and join in on yoga and meditation classes, relaxation massages, and rejuvenating soaks in specialty cedar wood hot tubs. Overlook the festival within this designated wellness space and embrace a sense of escapism.
5. Feast out
This culinary explosion brings bold flavors from some of the best vendors around the country. Come hungry and enjoy the quality of a fine dining meal within a festival setting. An ale bar and premium spirits from a range of independent producers bring you some top shelf beverages that cannot be missed. Proper coffee, fresh fruit smoothies, and juices can be enjoyed by all.
