Camp Bestival

Lulworth Castle Dorset

This family-friendly festival is set in the grounds of Lulworth Castle, and along with top bands you can enjoy entertainment such as jousting sessions, comedy acts, storytelling and poetry, as well as the many great food stalls. Previous years have had performers from yesteryear (Madness, the Fall, Marc Almond) as well as up-and-coming talent such as Hurts. 2013's line-up included Ash, Labyrinth, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and Dorset's own Billy Bragg. Dick 'n' Dom and the Horrible Histories crew kept the kids entertained, and there’s also an animal petting farm, where they can feed or pet small animals including rabbits and pot bellied pigs.
