We started the summer off at Latitude. Following the monsoonal rain in 2013, I was hoping for better weather and we certainly got it! Glorious weather for the whole time we were there, it was so hot that we had to give the staff a siesta! We changed the layout of the area and brought in a new concession cafe which gave the area a great atmosphere and the customers loved the new addition!
Leeds & Reading
Tent numbers increased at Leeds in 2014 following on from the success of 2013. The campsites stayed in the same locations as 2013 and were run by two separate teams. Sarah and Mikey headed up Reading and Sam headed up Leeds. We had new kit at both sites, two person Vango tents at both Leeds and Reading and then Reading also had a stock of new 4 person tents. They are a great addition to the stock and stood up to the elements extremely well!
The sales just kept increasing and increasing and we ended up selling out of all stock! There was a great sense of achievement from the staff when they finished putting up and stocking the last tents on the Thursday night ready for the Friday morning opening, a huge field full of neat rows of tents. There was a great atmosphere in the campsite, the weather was fantastic and it was a great end to the festival season!
