I was there to represent the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) - the Festival's official health charity partner - so I arrived on-site before the gates opened. This was fantastic as it meant that I could explore the site with no crowds to get through, helping me create a mental picture of the festival. The site was vast and the ground uneven, so I was glad I'd packed some sturdy footwear as I walked miles every day exploring.

And when it comes to the mud, wind and rain, it's part of festival life, so I embrace it - it's hilarious when my guide is slipping and sliding all over the place whilst trying to keep me on track!
