Camp Bestival

When: 25 July - 28 July

Where: Lulworth Castle, Dorset

Yes it's true! The theme for our fave family festi is Heroes Vs. Superheroes. Step up the brave and the perilous, courageous and noble, those with superhuman powers or those simply performing everyday heroic deed.

“Stand back kids, I’m about to put my superhero spandex on and don my glittery cape for 2019! So many of you have asked for this kinda theme over the years and we couldn’t think of a better way to soar into summer hols than with this simple but heroic idea...see you in the skies!” Rob da Bank

Journey through space and time with The Incredibles, Wonder Woman, the Dalai Lama, an NHS nurse, Hermione Granger, PJ Masks, Sir David Attenborough, Serena Williams, Harry Kane, Spider-Man, Arya Stark, teachers, Tom Daley, Ghandi, Matilda, a paramedic on a night shift, Nelson Mandela, Anna and Elsa, Michael Jordan, firefighters, Guardians of the Galaxy, Frida Kahlo, Moana, Rey, farmers, Usain Bolt, Fantastic Four, astronauts, Malala Yousafzai, Katniss Everdeen and you!

Gasp in wonder at the might of ordinary people doing extraordinary things for the greater good of the human race. Watch as superheroes and sidekicks use their superhuman powers to help fight off evil villains, protect the public and save the Universe!

And never forget the hero inside of all of us. Whatever comes our way we can unite with feats of ingenuity, bravery and strength to overcome.

So pop on your masks and capes, harness your inner powers, and focus your mind on 4 days of heroic fun at the ultimate hideout, Lulworth Castle, this summer.

Camping in the Main Campsites is included free with your event ticket. This area has been divided up into 2 coloured zones, Purple and Yellow... just to help you find your tent. Most of the area in these campsites is for family camping although there will also be a signed area which is for non-families.
