On 22-23 August thousands of music lovers descended on our little area to enjoy this year’s annual V Festival. The 2015 event included performances by artists such as Kasabian, Calvin Harris, The Script, Ellie Goulding, The Proclaimers, Marina and the Diamonds and many, many more. In addition to live performances by top artists, V Festival also hosts a Dance Tent, as well as a Glee Club Comedy Tent, headlined this year by Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle and Essex local, Russell Kane. Every year the festival gets better and better, with this year’s event being no exception.
V Festival Accommodation 2015
As in previous years, Harwood House dedicates this weekend to V Festival attendees offering special packages just for festival goers. As much as we wish we could have accommodated everyone who wanted to stay with us, we were fully booked early in the year. Just as in past years, Harwood House is a favourite among V Festival goers, and who can blame them? With a comfy place to stay after a long day, complete with a hot shower all to themselves, a warm breakfast in the morning in a private dining room and transport to and from the festival grounds, it’s easy to see why those searching for V Festival accommodation 2015 chose to book early. Here are a few pictures from the festivities this year.
Don’t take our word for it, see what a guest this year had to say:
I stayed here this weekend on the recommendation of a friend whilst we went to the V festival and what a super experience. Ian and Helen are fabulous hosts where nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The hotel was full of festival goers and it had a great atmosphere with Ian and Helen ferrying us to and from the festival each day.
The room was large and extremely comfortable and it actually had a decent hairdryer (unlike many of the bigger hotel chains) so got extra marks for that from me. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and delicious. I rarely opt for b and b’s but staying here has changed my views and I wouldn’t book anywhere else if I was in the area again.
Harwood House for V Festival 2016
