Ok I work at festivals and events all over the UK all year round.

But I need a new tent as I'm getting old (58) I think my new one should have a bit of comfort and space to it.

The tent needs to be quick to put up and take down ( A bit like a tarts knickers at Glastonbury. )

So I have come up with these three. Which do you think would be best? It will only have to last for one season and then it will go in the skip.

I've got the Olpro, it's fine and pretty spacious for one/two. It's not standing height though.

Is that the The Knightwick 3 Berth Tent? .... It looks good for the price.

Yep. I won it in a comp on here. Seems perfectly decent but as I say you can't stand up in it.

I've got a Rydal 500 that my mum & dad use, easy up & down. Not a bad tent but no mesh on doors. I prefer Vango tents myself & have just got an icarus for my parents for this year.

"It will only have to last for one season and then it will go in the skip"

And then straight to landfill!

One of the worst examples of the throwaway society I have heard.

Is Glastonbury still sponsored by Greenpeace?
They must be so proud of all the throwaway tents they are responsible for...

Bloodyhell Paul you have poked the Greenpeace hornets nest, they donít like landfill do they.

I am sure you could burn it on bonfire night.
