Caravanserai

A few weeks ago the caravans started arriving. Rolling in with the sunshine.  It's a convoy of English and French artists, gypsies and beatniks and they've set up an encampment at Camp Bestival where weary travellers and wanderers can rest and recharge. They welcome you to explore and lounge in their bric-a-brac camp built from old vehicles, curiosities and objets d'art they have found on the road. Caravanserai is a unique venue from the imagination of Monsieur Bateman, an artist who has been building magical creations for Camp Bestival for several years. This is one of our favourite places on site and we're very excited to be welcoming its ramshackle beauty back to the fields. Built entirely from vintage caravans and fairground rides, it’s the place to go wild and grab some cocktail treats while you kick back and enjoy the floor-filling gypsy-fuelled vintage beats, death-defying aerial feats and faded-glam circus performances from audacious showmakers Cirque Bijou. A chilled-out hang out in the afternoon where you can pick up a few circus tricks and positively rambunctious at night! image image SaveSaveSaveSave
