Pop stars and Rock stars – Camp Bestival lineup

Our favourite event of the year is only 6 months away and already we are getting super excited to see what Camp Bestival (THE best family festival) has to offer. This year the Camp Bestival theme is Pop stars and Rock stars. Over the last few weeks they've been announcing the full Camp Bestival lineup and to be honest both C and I are quite excited. When I discovered All Saints were going to be playing I may have whooped just a little bit as I've been a fan for roughly 20 years.…Read more

Lots of Kids Activities at Camp Bestival 2016

If you are regular readers you will know how much we love Camp Bestival. For the last 3 years we have been having fun there every Summer and experiencing new adventures each visit.

He was keen to take part in many more activities and discover areas at Camp Bestival that we'd not visited before. The kids activities at Camp Bestival are great for all ages, there is something for everyone, from soft play and…Read more

An out of this world experience at Camp Bestival

This year's Camp Bestival was epic in fact I would go as far as saying I had an out of this world experience at Camp Bestival. It flew by too fast and already I am wishing it was next year, but it was such a great weekend with family and friends. We arrived on the camp site on Thursday morning just as some rainy showers decided to soak everything we'd packed for the weekend. Thankfully the rain decided it had the wrong time and place and was soon replaced by gorgeous sunshine. Tents…Read more

The final washing load is drying on the line, the camp stove and pans are packed away until our next trip and the sunburn is beginning to peel, but the memories of Camp Bestival 2016 are going to last a lifetime. We took so many pictures on various cameras so thought we would share some memories we captured using the Hipstamatic app, one of my favourite mobile photography apps. They need no explanation, they perfectly capture our weekend and hopefully will convince you to join us there next year! Camp Bestival 2017 (July…Read more

Captured memories – Camp Bestival 2015

I think this is going to be my last Camp Bestival post... for at least a week (kidding I'll leave it a while longer). If you couldn't tell already this year's Camp Bestival really made an impression on me. I'm not sure if it was the Silent Disco, time spent with awesome friends or waking up next to my gorgeous family all under one canvas roof, that left me with so many happy memories. I'm going to get Clara to write about her experience of the weekend as we both got totally different…Read more
