Tips for your first time at Camp Bestival

This year will be our 5th year at Camp Bestival and I'll be honest, it's been my favourite part of the Summer each year we've attended. Back in 2014 when we discovered we would be heading down to Lulworth for our first time at Camp Bestival, I frantically started searching for tips to help me prep for our family festival weekend. Each year we've had different experiences, learned new tips, seen great acts, discovered different ways to enjoy ourselves and felt we should share some tips for those visiting for the first time…continue reading →

One of our favourite events to visit each year since we discovered they existed, is a Big Fish Little Fish rave.

Food at Camp Bestival 2017

It's hard to believe that it's been two weeks since Camp Bestival already. We've recently been thinking about the great food at Camp Bestival and wishing we were back there enjoying a DJ BBQ burger.
