With the sun shining and May in full swing our minds turn to festivals in the Summer ahead. I'm already unusually up-for-it this year and I know excitement levels are going to rise over the next fortnight as the BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend is going to be broadcast on tv and radio, really bringing that festival vibe into our household. This post is about Camp Bestival 2014 though, and about the array of fun things there will be for families to do, but first I couldn't resist sharing a few photos from Camp Bestival 2013...
But now, let's look to this year!
Music Line Up
Project Wild Thing There's a UK festival exclusive his year on the form of Project Wild Thing, a fun celebration of the Great Outdoors, I'm talking nature workshops, falconry, campfire cooking, den making, bird watching, mud kitchen, storytelling and much more. They will be taking over the Dingly Dell and beyond to present a Project Wild Thing Programme of nature-focused activities, workshops, gatherings and talks across the whole weekend.And it's not just for kids but grown ups too :"Project Wild Thing is leading the way in encouraging, provoking, supporting and campaigning for ways to help us get back to nature".
