Camp Bestival-The Staycation You Were Dreaming Of


If there is one thing I really missed during this pandemic, aside from travelling and seeing family and friends, it has to be music festivals. We have always been festival lovers and (at least when it comes to me) is the one and only occasion that you will see me eager to go camping. When little A was born we knew the way we approached festivals would have to be a little different but we were beyond happy when we found out about Camp Bestival ….a music and entertainment arts festival made for family fun. 


What is Camp Bestival

A fun-filled long weekend for the whole family. Music, theatre shows, attractions, activities and so much more. Wherever you look you are bound to find something that will fit your family as everything has been set up with the kiddos in mind, including a fair amount of TV kid’s characters and activities for kids of all ages.



Where is it

The festival is set on the grounds of Lulworth Castle, on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. A truly stunning location, only made more spectacular by the fireworks coming up from behind the castle on the last day of the festival.


What is On


With seven stages and other smaller music areas, it’s impossible not to find something for everyone. This year’s highlights include Fatboyslim, Groove Armada, Becky Hill, and many more. 


Kids’ activities

Camp Bestival truly is a paradise for kids, with specific areas for babies, toddlers, under 5s, and older children. Take your picks from fairground rides, yoga, parkour, arts and crafts, comedy, storytelling, circus acts, tv stars like Mr. Tumble and Dick and Dom and so much more.



If you are a foodie, this is your festival with so many options to choose from including DJ BBQ, the Feast Collective, and cooking demos with limited dishes from chefs like Nathan Outlaw and Ben Tish. 


The festival offers different camping options to make everyone happy and offer different experiences, from the main campsite to Backstage and Boutique camping, you are sure to find something that will hit the right spot for you.
