Camp Bestival 2016

The theme of Camp Bestival 2016 has just been announced, and it’s so out of this world, I have to let you know! Get ready to blast off into Outer Space!

Transmitting from the Camp Bestival Lunar Module, Commander Rob da Bank says:

Attention all space personnel, cosmic explorers, astronauts and little astronutters… prepare for blast off. Yes friends it’s time to whizz off into orbit down at Lulworth Castle aka Spacecamp Dorset and explore the outer regions of our glorious galaxy, the stars, the planets, the moondust, the asteroids and the occasional scary black hole…and remember kids – Outer Space is the place!

I’m pretty excited about this theme – I’ve always been interested in space exploration, and have visited both the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas; and the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. We visited Kennedy Space Center in 2014, and it was AMAZING! The photo above is of the now retired Shuttle Atlantis. Not a model of it, but the actual one that went up into space.

But back down to earth for a moment to tell you more about what the Camp Bestival organise have up their spacesuit sleeves…

Exploring strange new worlds of music, theatre, shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors, talks and delicious, healthy food, they’re heading past the Karman Line out into the unknown on a cosmic adventure. Filling the Lulworth Castle universe with rocket ships, crazy constellations and shining stars, their four-day family festival escapades on 28th-31st July 2016, are guaranteed to be out of this world. So get your space suits on, grab those moon boots and come join the voyage into the infinite possibilities of Outer Space!

Whether you’re heading out at warp speed or leisurely floating in space, they’ll have a host of familiar celestial destinations to visit, including the Kids’ Gardens, Bollywood, the Big Top, The Greatest Tent on Earth, the Dingly Dell, the Bestival Inflatable Church, Caravanserai, the Castle Stage, Son et Lumiere fireworks and lots, lots more.

The heavenly line-up will be announced very soon but please don’t miss out on Camp Bestival’s greatest adventure yet, grab your Outer Space Early Bird tickets now!

I’m forever running behind on my blog… I mean, I never did finish off writing about our weekend at Camp Bestival 2015, I still have days 3 and 4 to write… but you can read everything about our 1st Camp Bestival experience here! I will finish this off, but will probably save it till January, when it is bleak and miserable outside, and we need some sunshine in our lives!
