Well the last few months disappeared in the blink of an eye didn’t they?? I feel like I just saw the first trickle of line up announcements for Camp Bestival and all of a sudden here we are just four days before it all kicks off.
Here are 10 things we are looking forward to this year:
1. The Feast Collective and The Brancott Estate Wine Experience:
My favourite part of the festival every year is the Feast Collective. Hosted by the ever enthusiastic DJ BBQ, there is a real fun and laidback vibe there with the best food I have ever had at any festival I have been to. Looking forward to sampling some of DJ BBQ’s low and slow cooked offerings as well as heading to Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, can also see at least one trip to The Jam Jar Bar happening too. Oh and Jimmy’s Ice Coffee for those hopefully warm but tiring afternoons.
New this year is The Brancott Estate Red Shed Wine Experience, I am very much looking forward to this.
There is no doubt about it, the festival is incredibly fun but so tiring for parents – the slow motion therapies on offer sound just perfect. A massage and a child free break – bliss.
I love all kinds of music and there are a lot of bands I am excited to see this year, including 80’s come back bands such as Banarama.
Foodie demonstrations from top chefs and food personalities – really looking forward to this.
Seeing the girls have fun is the very best part for me, the Dingly Dell is a gorgeous wooded area, away from the chaos and mayhem of the festival where you can get truly back to nature. Highlights this year include The Mud Cafe Kitchen and Giant Den Building. I shall be embracing my inner child for sure.
The girls always have a blast in the craft area of the festival, Art Town is a pretty cool place to be and there are also lots of shows to watch which are appealing to all generations.
7. Mr Tumble:
It really wouldn’t be Camp Bestival without Mr Tumble, he draws the biggest crowd of the festival and the girls have been most excited to both watch his show and meet him in the press area afterwards – blogger perks hey?
8. Dick & Dom:
Another Camp Bestival favourite, they light up the festival with their witty banter and often slightly drunken shows. Fun for everyone.
This is an area of BMX and Skateboarding fun where the children can learn new and exciting skills. It is a good area to just laze around outside and watch. The Wall Of Death is the Fox family riding motorcycles in a rather dangerous and insane manner around the walls of an indoor arena. It is incredibly exciting to watch although I think I gasped in horror at least once last time. The Fox family includes the world leader Wall Of Death rider Ken Fox and they put on such a good show.
I will definitely be joining in on this experience on the largest bouncy castle in the world. I am hoping it will help me work off the churros I will definitely be indulging in each night. It will also have the bonus of tiring the girls out for a peaceful night of sleep. I hope.
What are you looking forward to?
