Now that we’re right in the midst of the Summer holidays, we thought we would give you some suggestions on what you can do to enhance your experience when staying with us this August at Mill Rythe…. After all, holidays are all about making memories!

FireworksBoomtown Festival
7th – 10th August
Boomtown is an innovative and creative festival that celebrates the culture of music through artistic minds and skilled musicians in one vibrant pop-up city in Winchester! Bursting with a vibrant atmosphere families can now enjoy a unique experience as for 2014 the festival has made it much more family friendly. Expect a ‘KidzTown’ section where children can rock, bop, jump and shout to their own mini festival which also includes great activities and workshops. To add to the hassle free day there will also be a separate family car park and entrance to the event. This year’s theme is Wild West meets Carnival, so get ready for 9 districts of different musical flavours.

Wickham Festival

Enjoy fantastic live music at the family friendly Wickham Festival just a 25 minutes’ drive away from Mill Rythe. This year the sensational and talented James Blunt will be headlining the festival alongside a fantastic line up of brilliant musicians. However that’s not all…. Solar powered cinema, Samba, face painting, children entertainers, dance displays, laser arena, real ale bars, Punch & Judy plus much more are just a few of the things you can enjoy!
