/ Cheap 2 man tent, to last a week only :)
Anyone with any experience of the cheap 1-2 man tents from argos / halfords? Would like something with 2 skins as its going to be hot hot hot...
Got an urban escape family tent (halfords) that's been good. people rave about the 'tiger paws' argos tent.
Had a decent dome tent from decathlon & would go there again in preference to argos/halfords, if only because you can see them pitched and they don't mind (so much) if you unpack on to have a look.
Tip for much heat: damp cloth. water spray, garden mister or similar: spray in the air above you & it cools as it descends
Why not also take an awning or tarp for shade?
Just visit any popular lovely national park after a sunny or bank holiday weekend and you will have your pick of 2 man tents for no cost at all. And possibly some other free gifts too.
What's cheap, less than £50 or closer to £20? Will a pop up suffice or you after a "normal" tent?
Although that Ozark one from Asda looking like the Federer to my Murray!

Yep, or visit a festival site when the hordes have departed.
Quite depressing reading.
If you do want to chuck it afterwards, let me know. I'm now involved with a fledgling charity that is going to start recycling old festival tents & other unwanted camping gear from donations, then giving it to families on low-incomes in the UK so they get to have a holiday.
in really hot sunny places get a space blanket or 2 and put over the flysheet- works pretty well at reflecting the heat - and cheap as chips
