Feed Your Brains at The Literary Institute

Guaranteed to be an enclave of enlightenment throughout the weekend, The Literary Institute is Camp Bestival’s oasis of inspiration offering insight and entertainment throughout the weekend. Brimming with inviting sofas and cosy armchairs, sit back, relax and feed your mind with everything from Pop Stars & Rocks Stars quizzes to advice on doing what you love this July at Lulworth Castle. image Literary Institute host Jack Rooke says: “The literary line-up is a stonker again! A brilliant mix of enlightening talks, intelligent debate and a great pub quiz... and that’s just for the kids!
Adults can expect much the same, but with the Scummy Mummies running After Hour Clubs, I think this year’s institute will be roaring with laughter
”. As ever, we’ve got some fantastically exciting talents lined up to quicken the old grey matter with a programme of talks, shows, quizzes & more hosted by Steven Lamb and Jack Rooke, including A Boy Made of Blocks with Keith Stuart, The Scummy Mummies Show, Boys Don’t Cry with Bryony Kimmings, Bedtime stories with The Famous Five with readings from Five and a Half-Term Adventure, Five Have a Puzzling Time and A Lazy Afternoon, Pub Quiz for Kids With Patrick Monahan, Sound System: The Political Power of Music with Dave Randall, The Feast Collective Conversations with Elly Pear, Gill Meller, Jo Ingleby & Steven Lamb, The Great Camp Bestival Pop Stars & Rock Stars Quiz with John Harris, plus Morning Mindfulness.
