Camp Bestival is to bring favourite family festival to Weston Park for the first time from 18 to 21 August 2022. The new addition will follow hot on the heels of the pioneering Dorset-based jamboree in July.
Camp Bestival Shropshire will be a stand-alone event bringing all the unique and essential family friendly elements of the original Camp Bestival to the Midlands with the promise of lashings of family fun.
Speaking of the announcement, Festival Co-Curator’s Josie & Rob da Bank said: “Whoop! The da Bank house is about to explode with excitement that we can finally announce our first new festival for many years as we unleash Camp Bestival Shropshire! Set in the heart of England, Josie and I couldn’t be prouder or more delighted to have finally found a site that's not only worthy of a second Camp Bestival, but is also exquisitely beautiful. Weston Park has all the elements we love from magical woodlands and oodles of green fields to lakes and a historic stately home backdrop.
"We're over the moon to be adding this new event to our festival family to meet popular geographical and practical demand. We plan to give this festival as much love and attention as our heritage festival in Lulworth and can’t wait to see you all back at one or the other... or possibly both!
"An ardent take on Team CB’s tried and tested recipe, Camp Bestival Shropshire will make a home in Weston Park’s immaculate grounds designed by England’s greatest gardener, Capability Brown. A wonderland of expansive green spaces, luxuriant lawns, verdant parkland, and enchanting woodlands, festivalgoers can enjoy a host of glittering family treats from our famous kids’ gardens jam-packed with action, and all manner of frolics and fun, to magic meadows and whole arenas abounding with a myriad of screen free activities for kids of all ages.
"And let’s not forget all the things that make Camp Bestival one of the country’s favourite festivals and a six-time winner of the UK Festival Awards Best Family Festival, including theatre, shows, wellbeing workshops, circus spectacles, sideshow commotions, comedy, lashings of incredibly delicious food and drink and the very finest in outdoor living from spacious general camping, Camping Plus and Backstage Camping, through to decadent boutique offerings, campervans, caravans and beyond.
"No Camp Bestival would be complete without an epic musical line-up stretching all the way from legendary heavyweights to some of the most exciting up and coming acts around. Taking in pop, rap, rock, dance, dub skiffle, swing, and any other genre-busting madness you care to mention, there will be beats, rhymes and giddy rhythms all weekend long, spread across Camp Bestival’s signature stages, including the Big Top, Bollywood, Caravanserai, Pig’s Big Ballroom and more.
"Combining an all-encompassing family festival experience with an action-packed camping holiday, Camp Bestival is the ultimate ‘Festi-holiday’ jam packed with entertainment and cultural delights!"
