Summer Festival Guide

Tuesday 14 July, 2015

Although Glastonbury dominates the festival headlines pre-summer, there are hundreds of other events going down in the UK and abroad.

And don’t forget! Festivals used to be about slumming it in mud-strewn garms for three days. Thankfully times have changed and the word on the sartorial street is dress sensible, but dress sharp. Think layers, think a polo with our waterproof Seam Sealed Cambert. If you’re worried about your barnet looking messy, wear one of our classic brown Lennon hats. Even wellies can’t ruin that outfit.
