Camp Bestival 2015

Lulworth Castle, East Lulworth


This event has been and gone.

The family friendly Camp Bestival, which offers a wealth of entertainment alongside the music, returns to Lulworth Castle in 2015.

Inspired by our love of getting out into the open air and running free, Team CB have announced a brilliant new theme that’s very close to their hearts. That’s right, they’re putting Mother Nature front and centre for 2015, as Camp Bestival Goes Wild!

Camp Bestival’s own wild man Rob da Bank says: “Calling all wild boys and wild girls…oh yes my wild friends and family, prepare to get down and dirty at Camp Bestival 2015 as we dump the technology and scramble into the woods for a back to nature escape from normality. We’ll have golden chances to bond with your kids in the mud kitchen, sleep under the stars with your mates and family, and take part in tons of wild activities. Release your inner wild thing and see you in July!”

With something for everyone, it’s the ultimate family festival with musical treats and one of the best DJ line-ups anywhere in the world.

Expect the best music, arts, entertainment and everything in between, with hundreds of free things for kids to do including, new for 2015, The Chrysalis Garden, The Train Trip and Wild Adventures: the biggest, best and wildest activities yet.

Plus back by overwhelmingly popular demand, they're pleased to announce the return of The Den! A whole area of Camp Bestival dedicated solely to 13 – 17 year-olds, it’s kind of a festival within a festival, with new and emerging talent, workshops, talks, Q&As, and loads of stuff the olds won’t understand. From an exclusive, teen-only, interview with rap don Professor Green, and an appearance by BBC Radio 1’s Dr Radha, to free-running madness and all-out dancing, it’s a teen dream.

As part of Camp Bestival’s passion to get everyone connected with Mother Nature and the wonders of the great outdoors, we’re delighted to announce that the National Trust will be back in 2015 with their 50 things meadow at Lulworth Castle, giving kids a brilliant taster of their amazing ‘50 things to do before you’re 11¾’ initiative.

The Guardian Literary Institute features a program as diverse and entertaining as ever. With appearances from Bill Oddie, Suzanne Moore, Sara Cox, Kate Tempest, John Harris, and many, many others, they'll have a cornucopia of fascinating, intriguing and downright brilliant ‘How To…’ sessions, talks, spoken word, quizzes and the perennially popular bedtime stories, all helping to keep those neurons firing among the festi-holiday frolics.

Plus you can experience live mammal meetings, lake picnic walks, foraging walks, forest school, woodland adventure with Lizzie's Way, butterfly conservation with Munching Caterpillars, Jurassic CSI, campfires, storytelling and folk sessions with Tim Laycock, falconry, bushcraft, wood whittling and wild seed planting.
