Do Reading in style... at a price

Fed up with a soggy tent that falls down on Friday night? Now you can do Reading (or one of several other festivals) in style thanks to MyHab, who will have special MyHab areas in the campsite with prefabricated 'tents' made of waterproofed cardboard. They put them up and take them down, too, leaving the commited festival-goer more drinking time. The sites will also include hot showers, too. Each MyHab sleeps two people. Sounds brilliant, but (and it's a big 'but') each MyHab costs £240 for the weekend, ie £120 per person. Ouch!
