Summer isnt summer without a good famiy festival and reading Birds and Lilies post about Splendour 2018 (which isn’t far from us) got me really excited for our next festival – Camp Bestival!

So how would our perfect day at Camp Bestival look? This year will be our 3rd Camp Bestival. We first went in 2014 and here is our post, we missed a year and then went in 2016 and last year 2017.

We look forward to Camp Bestival as it is the first thing we do when school breaks out for the Summer. This year is particularly special as it is the last Summer before our eldest starts Secondary School!

There is a different theme each year – for 2018 it is Under the Sea – and subsequently, the vibe is changed but generally, there are the similar rides, tents, layout, food stalls and ambiance. This gives a certain amount of familiarity but there is still the edge of exciting.

When we arrive we always buy a programme and once the tent is up, beds made and we feel settled we pore over it and plan the activities.

So.. how would our Perfect Day at Camp Bestival look….


We always have breakfast in the tent – usually tea and porridge pots with pastries and fruit.

After a bit of a chill out in the tent, quick baby wipe wash, maybe a spot of face painting we head up the hill to the festival..

Duck and Dom are the perfect way to kick start the day with lots of comedy and silliness!

Followed by a wander for some educational fun at the Science tent.. last year we made our own rocket and then fired them to see how far they went!


One of my favourite stalls is the Garlic farm – they do the yummiest garlic mushrooms with chilli, garlic bread and lots of cheese!


Refueled it would be time for a busy afternoon…

Maybe some circus skills…

Crafting a bow and arrow…

A spin on the fairground rides…


Festival fun in the dark.

Hre we are by the glitter ball!

Live music and dancing

This year we are most looking forward to Shed Seven, Orbital as well as headliners Clean Bandit, Rick Astley and Simple minds.

So excited to see what new fun we will have this year with the boys another yer older and with new interests and things to do and see.

Have you seen the brilliant line up at Camp Bestival? How would you spend your Perfect Day?
