Some campers have already started signing in and the site is well on the way to being ready for its grand opening tomorrow.

Take a look at the picture gallery below to get a sneak peek into the festival site as it is being set up.

There will be a roller disco, Europe’s biggest outdoor inflatable water slide, family favourites the Flying Seagull Project, and the UK’s first interactive mobile caving system, providing 90ft of artificial caving to make your way through.

The line-up features Morcheeba, Gabrielle, All Saints, Pixie Lott, Nik Kershaw and 10CC.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
