Camp Bestival is the UK’s perfect family festival, each summer lining up a weekend of music, fun and games for all ages inside the beautiful grounds of Dorset’s Lulworth Castle, including sets from the likes of Clean Bandit, Mark Ronson and Madness in recent years.

Since its inception over ten years ago (way back in 2008), Camp Bestival has gone on to win the Best Family Festival at the UK Festival Awards in no fewer than a remarkable five years.

This incredible achievement is thanks to the huge, diverse programme it lays on each year, including music, comedy, theatre, spoken word, arts and crafts, science shows and circus workshops.

There is also a whole area dedicated entirely to 13-17 year olds called The Den, which showcases music, as well as all kinds of activities that’ll keep the teens entertained for days, or head over to the Kids Gardens if you’re with young children to be greeted by a vintage fairground, face painting and the insect circus.

Camp Bestival 2020 was cancelled, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets remain valid for the 2021 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
