The perfect gift for those hard to buy for loved ones.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably in need of Christmas gift inspiration and you’re perhaps feeling a tiny bit anxious because you want it to be something really special.
We’ve all been there, unwrapping a beauty gift set with two body butters we’re only ever going to use in emergencies when we run out of our preferred brand, pointless gadgets we know we won’t get round to buying batteries for, or that stop working after the first couple of weeks! Chocolate boxes we just don’t have the stomach to tackle on Christmas Day and therefore sometimes, Christmas can feel like an exercise in simply accumulating more stuff.
For that reason, the perfect present doesn’t have to be a physical product. Experiential gifts create memories that will be cherished long after the season of indulgence has passed and they show that you’ve put time and care into picking something truly personal. They’re increasingly popular, something that can perhaps be attributed in part, to our desire to cut back on unnecessary waste.
One in five Brits planned to buy experience-based gifts ahead of Christmas 2018, according to research by Barclaycard , spending an average of £129 each – a rise of 115% on the previous year.
Live Music Experience
Our answer is spoiling your loved ones with tickets to The British Country Music Festival that takes place from the 3rd-5th September 2021. The festival is held indoors in the stunning Winter Gardens Blackpool, with five stages including the iconic, beautifully gilded and candle-lit Empress Ballroom.
The festival is a unique celebration of the rapidly growing new country music scene and there has never been a more exciting time to enjoy the plethora of amazing, homegrown talent that has made the UK recognised around the world as providing some of the leading singer-songwriters of quality country and Americana music.
Here at The British Country Music Festival we are proud to have created a family feel for both guests and artists during our first year back in 2019. All the artists loved playing in Blackpool and particularly enjoyed the opportunity to mingle and talk with the fans.
Because the venue is indoors, it means our guests are not at the mercy of the weather, they can dress up, there’s plenty of seating, toilets with running water and dedicated bars with no queues.
Weekend tickets are exchanged for wristbands that let the wearer come and go as they please over the three days. So, not only do you get to experience the festival, you can also enjoy Blackpool’s attractions and step outside into the town centre for a spot of shopping!
Of course this offer is also perfect if you want to spoil yourself, why should the friends and relatives get all the fun?
Your gift will bring joy to your loved one on Christmas Day and it won’t just get put in a drawer on Boxing Day and forgotten about.
There will be anticipation throughout the year and anticipation is a pleasure based emotion that is beneficial for our brains and even our physical health! This year more than ever, we all need something special to look forward to.
The power of music is an incredibly important and unique tool that aids the human experience. When added to a social gathering where people from all walks of life have come to celebrate this art together, it becomes a leveller and a mutually enjoyable experience across all cultures. Going to a music festival not only makes you happier, it can change your life. In 2019, one of our guests even bought a ukulele and took up singing! We also welcomed many single people who had never been to a festival before and they left having made many new, like-minded friends.
Perhaps the biggest benefit your gift will deliver is the hugely important support of UK musicians and songwriters and crucially new, emerging talent. So many have struggled for survival throughout 2020. All musicians need live gigs and a public platform in order for their music to be heard and to attract a fanbase. Live performances create lasting memories.
See our reviews from guests who enjoyed the 2019 festival. Your gift will provide memories for many years to come.
