Mum Smuggles Alcohol Into A Festival With 'Ingenious' Hack
Anyone who has had the pleasure of going to festival this year will know that the worst bit (aside from the dodgy bogs) is the eye-watering price you pay to get your hands on a cold pint.
When it's a festival or event where you can't take your own booze in, things have to get technical and you need to use your imagination when it comes to the art of smuggling. Whether you get a secret brolly that holds your tipple of choice or wedge it in the waistband - the chances are security are going to catch you out.
Well, one woman might have discovered the best trick to date - disguising her booze as birthday gifts.

Georgia, from Manchester, shared her mother's clever method on Twitter, revealing how she disguised two bottles of wine by wrapping them up in birthday gift wrap and popping them into a gift bag, to try and get them into an 80s-themed festival in their hometown.
She even wrote a loving message on the tag to her non-existent friend 'Shellie', telling her to have 'a wonderful 40th,' signing it off 'from Kris and the girls'. She also took a 40th birthday balloon with her because if you're going to do it, you might as well do it properly.

Her daughter explained the story on Twitter, saying: "My mums sneaking 2 boxes of wine into an 80s festival by disguising them as birthday presents for a non existent friend called shellie the f**king lengths this woman goes to for a cheap bev."
Georgia then shared a screenshot of her mum having successfully sneaked into the festival, with her disguised alcoholic goods.
Her mum text her daughter saying: "Omg was so easy didn't even check ha xxx [sic]".
The people of Twitter praised the woman calling her a 'genius' and a 'legend'. One called her 'a woman of the people' while another said 'we have a long way to go,' to their pal.
It takes a bit of pre-planning and the wrapping paper and balloon will cost you a few quid bit, but it's better than being charged £9 a pop, isn't it? Now, do you reckon we could get away with two crates or what? Oh and HBD, Shellie.
