After a battle with leukaemia, 17-year-old Rhiannon wanted to fulfill a dream to go camping in style at Bristol’s retro festival, Let’s Rock. A big fan of 80s music and festivals, Rhiannon particularly chose Let’s Rock because in her words, “It’s so different to most festivals - it’s friendlier and more comfortable (and they play good music non-stop)!”
Camping in true style and comfort can only mean one thing... Glamping! Rhiannon’s face lit up when she arrived and saw her luxurious teepee. Not only did it have comfortable beds with fresh linen but it also had carpets, fairy lights and even flowers!
The atmosphere at the festival was amazing - it was everything Rhiannon had imagined and more and she was particularly excited to see two of her favourite bands perform, UB40 and Go West.
Rhiannon and her friend didn’t stop dancing most of the weekend and spent hours in front of the stage.
Even when the bands finished playing and packed up, the girls still weren’t ready to hang up their dancing boots. Instead they headed straight for the dance tent with non-stop 80s music playing!
Rhiannon loved the festival so much that she’s already saving up to go next year (and every year after that)!
“It was Rhiannon’s best weekend ever. A big thank you from us - you’ve made her year!” Rachel, Rhiannon’s mum
