Girls don their wellies and wristbands for music festival

by | Sep 7, 2019

Girls and young women from Bath had the time of their lives over the Bank Holiday weekend at the UK’s biggest girl-only music festival, Wellies and Wristbands.

Wellies and Wristbands, organised by Girlguiding, took place at Foxlease in the idyllic New Forest countryside. It was attended by over 4,000 girls and young women from Guides and Rangers aged 10-18.

The girls adventured during the day, taking part in activities from abseiling to archery to zip wire. In the evening, they danced at the main stage to bands, including Bronnie and The Hara, playing some of their favourite hits.

The festival gives girls the chance to have fun with friends. They could choose between chilling out in the pamper zone, having a go on a giant water slide, or learning essential survival skills including bushcraft and backwoods cooking.

Alongside their friends and their dedicated Girlguiding volunteers, girls had the chance to experience the fun and friendship that festivals can offer in a girl-only environment.

Here are a few photos of all the fun…
