Woodland Magic in the Dingly Dell
The family can enjoy a whole woodland-based world of wonder that awaits in the Dingly Dell. One of Camp Bestival’s most popular areas, this year there’s a whole host of interactive action to get stuck into including games, riddles & songs from the ATE Trust. They will also have dragonfly and dreamcatcher making workshops, Dangerous Demos and Extreme Evening Escapades! Plus, Shadow Puppet Theatre on Friday & Saturday and Willow Lantern-lit Procession, Bedtime Story and Hot Chocolate on Sunday. There will be live storytelling sessions of David Litchfield’s beautifully illustrated winner of 2016’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, The Bear and the Piano with craft and musical workshops and more based on the beautiful book and its magical tales. Imagination is the limit at longstanding fave Lizzie’s Way. Don’t miss the chance to play, laugh and experiment in mud kitchens, story nooks, puppet theatres and fabulously crafty bespoke outdoor activities. Longdown Festival Farm are back giving you the chance to hold a baby chick, stroke a rabbit, or feed a guinea pig and enjoy some proper hands on farmyard experience with help from lovely farmer, Ian. The Wild Treeclimbing & Outdoor Zipline will give adventurous little ones the chance to get harnessed up to climb one of the majestic old trees and zoom down the brand new zipline. Crafty Corner will add even more craft into the Dingly Dell with a fab opportunity to get those green fingers even dirtier and to make some awesome keepsakes. And we’ll have amazing Den Building with a team of experts from Woodland Tribe helping to design and build a fantastic Den for the Dingly Dell.
