This year for the first time ever, we are going to Camp Bestival and I can’t wait! Held at Lulworth Castle in Dorset, (yes in the grounds of a real castle!) on the weekend of July 26th – 29th it looks set to be a really amazing experience.
We’ve been to many festivals as a family now and for me, the children are always the priority. We love going to places with them and seeing their enjoyment is always the best thing about going away and I find that festivals are the perfect place to do that. It is a safe place to let them have freedom and run wild and they get to do so many activities in one weekend.
Although we prioritise the kids and go to things for them and don’t moan too much when they are exhausted and we miss the best acts….! It’s not just a children’s festival. There is a great music line up including Huey Morgan, (huge FLC fan here!), Shed Seven, Clean Bandit, Basement Jaxx and Ferne Cotton but for me, it really is the kid’s events that get me really excited!
As well as lots for the younger ones, including Mr Tumble and Mr Maker, the line up for your little wildlings is absolutely bursting with exciting shows and acts for them to join in. Some of the things we are most excited about are the circus shows, the trapeze school, SamSam the Bubbleman, the dinosaur live show, Big Fish Little Fish rave, ZSL Gruesome Nature live, Royal Albert Hall Symphony workshops and the art and science tents. We have always found the learning to be second to none at these events and now that we are a homeschooling family, I can’t wait to take away some new ideas to try at home.
To be honest, there is so much I’m excited about that I can’t quite type it all down! I’ll have a go……
The World’s Biggest Bouncy Castle, Spinney Hollow Woodland Crafts, Wild Tree Climbing, Son Et Lumiere Castle Firework Spectacular, Fancy Dress Parade, Den Making, Pimp My Shopping Trolley, there are also rumours to be visits from Paddington ad Peter Rabbit!
If you’re a foodie, you’ll be happy too, there is a staggering array of food and drink on offer and I think I put weight on just reading the options! We are SO excited and can’t wait now, even better? We’re offering you the chance to win a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) so you can experience it yourself!! Enter below.
