Kids are king at Camp Bestival. There is an avalanche of activites for children of all ages; 2 to 62! A large section of the festival site is devoted to the little-uns with the Upper Kids' Garden on the lawn behind the castle particularly suited to giving them a bit of freedom to cavort and explore. Activities here include the likes of BigTopMania where you can learn a circus skill, bikes and go-carts, a separate Toddlers' Area plus scrumptious food galore for all ages in The W.I. Tea Tent and The Feast Collective. The Lower Kids' Garden, meanwhile, is packed full of entertainment for slightly older children. This year you'll find the Insect Circus, Craft Tent where paint and glitter was the order of the day, vintage fairground rides, facepainting and a Soft Play Tent and Sandpit (for under 5's) plus spectaculars galore in The Greatest Tent On Earth! And intermingled amongst all this are plenty of food markets, cafes, bars, talks and music stages to ensure the slightly older clientele don't stand a chance of getting bored. Kids entertainment certainly isn't restricted to the Kids' Gardens either, with fun and games spread throughout the site. You'll find performances by huge names in kids entertainment and loads more happening on our Castle Stage, Big Top and Bollywood stages amongst all our live music acts, plus there's the chance to bounce on The World's Biggest Bouncy Castle in the Magic Meadow. There's also Sonic Youth Club (our dedicated takeover in The Literary Institute for 13-17s) and over in the upper Magic Meadow near the campsites along with the incredible woodlanders roost, Spinney Hollow. The Dingly Dell is also a great place for families to take part in activities together. From storytelling and songs to creative play, physical and interactive fun, it’s a woodland refuge filled with fairy tale and adventure. Wild Tribe is a brand-new kids area designed to encourage screen-free time. This unique area will be complete with bushcraft and wild adventures, mud slides, drumming circles, as well as some seriously mouth-watering unique foods to fuel the kids.
