Why will the family love it?
In many ways, Camp Bestival is suited far more to those with families than those without. The festival is all about resurrecting the British holiday camp, a place where Hi-de-Hi! camping capers meet with the spirit of early festivals. There is a massive kids’ area and many of the children’s activities are included in the price of the weekend ticket.
