‘Attitude’ Festival 2020!

July 2020

The second on-site camping festival was held at Turnstone House this year. All the young people and five adults successfully pitched their own tents (and kept them fantastically neat!), then camped out for three days, wearing the specially designed festival merchandise!

A larger event had been planned for this year and was to include live bands, but due to the current situation the adults had to be a bit more creative.  Activities included a drumming workshop, badminton, football, a ‘kidnap’ team challenge and a magic workshop.

As you would expect, there was plenty of cooking on the camp fire! Everyone joined in with all the activities and helped with any tasks required, resulting in a great, fun time for everyone involved!
