I went to the Apex Festival at Lydden last year, a friend had recommended it so thought it worth a try. I had also never been to Lydden before although it looked interesting when I checked it out online. So I was sure what to expect as I turned off the A2 into the venue, however, any doubt was soon dispelled. The venue was buzzing with activity and the site is just perfect for spectating. The circuit is at the bottom of it's own little valley and you can see all the track from virtually everywhere. The Festival was only in it's second year but there was action on and off the track during the day and, when the circuit closed, there was a proper drive-in movie followed by a silent disco on the Saturday. I haven't laughed so much watching all the revellers having a great time but with no noise! The food on offer was fantastic, all freshly prepared and cooked by little independent companies who clearly loved what they did. It was a toss up between the wood-fired pizzas and the amazing pulled pork - actually it wasn't, I had both and enjoyed every last mouthful. I really enjoyed the event last year and have already booked my tickets for early May. I will also definitely return to Lydden to see some of the varied racing that they put on, looking forward to the Rallycross, especially the World Rallycross at the end of May. I can highly recommend the venue and the Apex Festival as something to explore! There seemed to be a lot going on for the kids and you can even take the dog as Ge0rge1972 says.
