Family Traveller favourite, Camp Bestival, is heading for the high seas this summer at Lulworth Castle. From 26-29 July, this family-friendly festival will host musicians, artists and all-round entertainers for four days of ‘set sail’ themed fun.

With a diverse musical line up including Simple Minds, Basement Jaxx and Rick Astley, it’s clear that festival goers can ‘expect the unexpected’ this year. As well as music, you can look forward to firm family favourites such as Mr Tumble, Dick and Dom, and Mister Maker & the Shapes.

The show goes on with stand up comedy from the likes of Sean Lock and talks from authors and poets including ‘teen talks’. Get hands on with Craft Cabin and Den Building & Tree Climbing and channel your inner pirate or mermaid with Underwater Carnival Night Parade or Pirate Bedtime Stories .  

There really is something for the whole family, “from River Cottage feasts and animatronic dinosaurs, to Insect Circuses, pantomimes and a gin festival, it’s full steam ahead for 2018. All aboard!”
