The Perfect Portable Companion for Camp Bestival – Lava BrightSounds 2 Portable Speaker

This year will be our fourth year at Camp Bestival and we are looking forward to experiencing every thing it has to offer this weekend. The weekend is jam-packed full of activities, but most don’t start until around 11am which leaves the morning for you to chill out and relax in your tent after you have had a nice warm shower and a freshen up. We always take a couple of games, some colouring and a skateboard to keep the kids occupied but this year I have added a must-have companion for the outdoor camping & festival season to my …

Citroen C4 Picasso

A Roadtrip to Brighton Fringe Festival with Citroen

Brighton Fringe festival is the UK’s largest annual arts festival and runs from 6th May – 5th June 2016. Last weekend I was invited by sponsors Citroën UK to head cross country and see what the festival had to offer and all in a spangly New Citroën C4 Picasso. I am no stranger to the C4 Picasso having owned one for three years, but they have brought it right up to date with a dashboard to rival the Starship Enterprise with a smart phone inspired 7-inch Touch Drive interface. There is still the three full size, car seat friendly seats in …

Camp Bestival Fun in the Kids Upper and Lower Gardens 2016

The one thing that Camp Bestival does brilliantly is put on activities for kids of all ages to enjoy. We have already admitted that the Dingly Dell is our favourite hang out but that does not detract from all the other things on offer and the Kids Upper and Lower Gardens are firm favourites too. At Butlins earlier this year the kids all bravely tried out the Helter Skelter, having not been interested before, and it was one of the first things they spotted this year. Most activities at Camp Bestival are free but the Helter Skelter costs £2 per …

Pitch Village

Camping Pitch Village Style

For this years Camp Bestival we ditched our normal routine of car jenga, where we normally squeeze our large 8 man tent in the car along with all the paraphernalia that accompanies a trip away camping and trust me, our car is normally rammed. I was hopeful that we would get away with taking just one car, but with two trolley’s, suitcases and 6 people we still needed to take two, but everyone was comfortable rather than rammed in like sardines. This year we were Camping with Pitch Village, where you tent is up ready and waiting for you to …

Lizzie's Way

Camp Bestival 2016 – The Dingly Dell

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Dingly Dell is our favourite haunt at Camp Bestival and this year was our most magical yet. The Dingly Dell takes you away from the rush of the festival and into the nurturing bosom of nature’s playground. In the daytime, the kids adore exploring Lizzie’s Way where they get to read stories, act out puppet shows, make mud pies and potions and make wishes to fairies. Walk a little further in and try your hand at some of the National Trust #50things activities including climbing trees, rolling down a hill and building a den. …
