I am so excited for the F&W Festival this year. We travelled in summer last year so missed it and, in previous years, we have been with friends who weren't big drinkers (or eaters). This year, it's just our family and I intend to partake fully. I agree with those who have said to avoid weekends if you don't want big crowds. The one time we went on a Saturday evening it was absolutely heaving - wall to wall people and you couldn't even get near the booths.
