Why Camp Bestival is Ace for Kids


Pickle says… I recently went to my second Camp Bestival, and whilst the weather couldn’t have been more different from last year, everything else was just as awesome, if not more so! Camp Bestival is held every summer in Lulworth Castle, Dorset which is a gorgeous setting. There is SO much to share with you, so I thought I would start with explaining to you why Camp Bestival is ace for kids…

  1. The entertainment. I mean, Mister Maker, Mr Tumble, Dick and Dom and soooo much family friendly music to watch, listen and dance too. Who could ask for more? With several stages and many different tents and areas playing different types of music, it was great to just wander around and soak up the vibes! We caught a couple of awesome family shows in The Biggest Tent on Earth too.
  2. The crafts. I particularly loved the CBeebies tent and The Family Traveller one, where I made masks and designed and coloured my own T Shirt. There were loads of other craft sessions all over the festival too for children of all ages.
  3. The camping atmosphere. We were in general camping, and whilst packed in like sardines, the atmosphere was great. Everyone was so friendly and we felt really safe. The highlight (as last year) was ‘Bogies!’ being shouted literally all night on the Saturday! Just when it went quiet, some proud dad would shout it out, starting it all up again! It was hysterical! (Even Mummy may have joined in, and I definitely did!)
  4. The child friendly food. There was everything I could have wanted, from chunky chips with amazing sauces, freshly made pizza, toasties, mac and cheese and so much more. There was also a HUGE range of different foods for Mummy and the others.
  5. Lizzies Way a whole special area in the woods dedicated to little ones with a fantastic mud kitchen and so much more. I didn’t make it this year, but friends told me that it was brilliant again.

  11. We haven’t been to a Festival yet but this one sounds great.

  12. Sounds fab. Love things like this for the whole family

  13. This looks extraordinary! So many families all camping out in peace and quiet….I daresay we couldn’t do this in the U.S. Sadly we have too many unfriendly people who don’t know how to have a good time like this!

  14. looks like good fun! I keep seeing this advertised and never get around to actually looking into it, thanks for the review!

  15. These photos are very loving, and this kind of activity is very meaningful to both children and families.
