Camp Bestival 2016 – what we loved and hated






Festivals are not new to me or MadDad, in fact, we attended our first festival 22 years ago and were regular festival goers until Maxi was born 11 years ago.  But Camp Bestival was to be our first festival with kids and tweens at that as the boys are 10 and 11.

Camp Bestival is a family friendly festival based in the beautiful but rather undulous setting of Lulworth Castle in Dorset.  My first concern was that we would be travelling from North Yorkshire, so would have a long journey ahead of us before arriving on Thursday evening to our pre-pitched tent.  Alas due to a mistake somewhere along the line no tent was pitched for us until after dark and we very nearly turned around and went home!

We finally got settled into a four man tent on camping mats and decided to set our camping woes aside and make the most of our weekend.
We were up early Friday morning and excited to explore.  We made our way to the festival site , grabbed a program (which cost £10 and you get a lanyard with attached program, program booklet, colouring book and colouring pencil) and set about exploring the kid’s fields.

The easiest way to describe Camp Bestival is a music festival crossed with a very large village fete/country fair. So large that even in the three days we were there we managed to miss bits (Dingly Dell) and not do everything.

The hardest bit for us was to slow the boys down as they wanted to dash from one thing to another and not miss anything.  We were keen to try and slow down and make the most of the beautiful weather.  So we decided to comprise and allow the boys some freedom of their own once we had found a location on the castle stage.  So they managed to go on the world largest bouncy castle!

Most surreal moments of the weekend included watching all the Boden-clad mummies stand up and singing along to Mr Tumble on the castle stage.  Watching Bananarama, The Chuckle Brothers whilst the boys played Pokemon – I felt as though I had been wicked back to 1990! Dick and Dom, now they were a stroke of genius as fillers on Saturday.  The boys loved them and all I can say is B O G I E S! 

What we loved:

Camp Bestival feels so safe. It is filled with families and therefore, the perfect festival to bring kids of all ages to and to allow older ones to spread their wings.
There is something for everyone to enjoy from traditional fairground rides to personalising your own head torch with Energiser.
The toilets were the cleanest festival loos we have experienced.
The choice and quality of the food was exceptional.  yes, it was a little pricey but we expected that. Mini said the 27 hour slow cooked pulled pork was to die for and the fish finger sandwiches were a big hit with MadDad.
I loved that there were so many ways to get creative, even for older children.  You could have been kept busy every hour of the day if you chose too.
The eclectic music choices.  Mini’s musical highlight was DJ Tofu and the Brass Funkies, whilst MadDad loved Ward...
