Camp Bestival 2014…

Woah!  Where has the time gone?!  A few weeks of Summer has gone by since we were at Camp Bestival.  I need to tell you all about it.
It was fantastic!  Five days full of fun, adventure and wild times.  This year we stayed in the camper van field, was lucky to have a gorgeous van, which made the whole camping experience a breeze.  More on the van in another post.

This festival, we made so much craft, watched circus performers, danced under the stars, ran wild in the woodlands, played with friends, dressed up, watched the knights joust and to top it off saw the most EPIC of fireworks.
Over the weekend, we crafted in the Soul Park area, making letter press prints and wooden boats.  Tried our hands at circus skills and played for hours on the crazy, wonky bikes. Watched stand up comedy.  Listen to Jo Whiley read Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. Wowed at the teenagers skateboarding in the skate park.  We dressed up as a human cannon ball and a ring master and joined the fancy dress parade.
Camp Bestival is wonderful, full excitement on every level.  A festival for every age, something for all.  It is FUN!
I’ll pop back with more on the Project Wild Thing and our crafting later.
