STANDON CALLING

Posted on August 18, 2011

Last weekend we packed our backpacks full to the brim with all manner of weird and wonderful fancy dress, and headed off to Standon Calling. Set in the grounds of a 16th century manor house in Hertfordshire and with less than 3000 people attending, it’s a truly unique event that really deserves its ‘boutique’ title. A three-day party that started in 2001 as a birthday BBQ, the festival has maintained all its personal touches – there’s a secret woodland bar, an all-night club in a cowshed and even a swimming pool to cool off in! Add in plenty of amazing on-the-verge-of–breakthrough music acts and a crowd that’s the friendliest we’ve ever seen – it’s pretty much the ultimate English festival experience!

We loved the ‘Gods and Monsters’ theme and couldn’t get over some of the incredible fancy dress on display!

2

There were artists like Lamb and Hercules & Love Affair rocking the main stage, which was small enough that it felt like being at a private gig.

We met loads of stylish girls hanging out by the pool or checking out the array of incredible food stalls, and totally fell in love with Arancini risotto balls.

There were some amazing vintage and fancy dress stalls, so we stocked up on plenty of quirky accessories to bulk up our festival armoire. But easily our highlight of the weekend was this tiny canine Wonder Woman – you don’t get much cuter than that!
