Affordable gadgets and gizmos that cost a lot less than your festival ticket did


Umbrella lightsabre - £19.99

May the force of nature be with you

Looking good at a festival is almost as important as staying dry, but this umbrella ticks both boxes in style.

The umbrella is standard and will keep you dry, but the stem lights up like a lightsabre, and a swish or swivel will be greeted with accurate sound effects which is sure to bring a lot of attention, so you better make sure you're up on your Star Wars trivia.
