Why I am voting for Camp Bestival!

Camp Bestival 2014

Sadly festival season is over for another year, although I am not sure even I would be up for partying in a freezing cold field in a typical British winter, but it is lovely revisiting all our old photo’s from the summer and reminisce about the fabulous fun we all had. We were first time family campers and even we were surprised by how well we coped.  The toilets were good, there were hot showers and the atmosphere was brilliant, if… Continue Reading “Why I am voting for Camp Bestival!”

The boys enthusiasm for Skylanders seems to have ramped up a gear over the summer holidays and I think it is because they got the chance to play the new Skylanders Trap Team at Camp Bestival and LolliBop.

Friday’s Fun at Camp Bestival

Camp Bestival 2014

When going to Camp Bestival there is one thing I recommend you do first………buy a program.

My next tip is to work out who / what you want to see and then just go with the flow for the rest… Continue Reading “Friday’s Fun at Camp Bestival”
