On Saturday our whole team enjoyed a staff trip to the local Cotton Clouds festival. We loved it so much last year that we just had to go again this year! We all got into the festival spirit, buying camping chairs and customising them with our very own YTS logo and amusing nick names for each member of staff on the back of the chairs.

The atmosphere and setup were incredible, there were two huge tepee tents that played live music throughout the day and the artists switched between these two tents and the centre stage which we were sat next to.

Our favourite performances were from Toploader and Sister Sledge who were both absolutely amazing! Sister Sledge even paid tribute and sang two of the late Aretha Franklin songs which was such a beautiful touch. Toploader sang their hit song “Dancing in the Moonlight” and Sister Sledge sang classics such as “We are Family” and “Lost in Music” amongst many of their other great songs.

The event itself was well organised, there was an abundance of various different food stations, two bars and even a Glitter Tent where most of us – mainly the girls, had our faces covered in glitter!

We all had such a fantastic time at Cotton Clouds and will definitely be going again next year!
