The girls and I were so excited to head off to Camp Bestival this weekend to spend a couple of days having a ton of fun together at our first ever festival!
Being just down the road from and not feeling quite brave enough for camping with all three of the girls we just popped back and forth for the day. Which worked out really well for our first festival experience as it meant we could leave as the girls started to flag and we had comfy beds to jump into!
Campers can arrive on site from Thursday to pitch up obviously that wasn’t applicable to us so we rocked up on Friday at about mid day and wow I just didn’t expect it to be any where near as big as what it was! I felt a little over whelmed at first just not quite sure where to go or what to do first. We settled down in Big Top to have our picnic and we watched West End Kids the girls loved singing along to some of their favourite Disney songs.
After our refuel we headed off to explore more of Camp Bestival and find our barings a little, being such a family orientated festival the whole vibe of Camp Bestival was so friendly everyone just laughing, being silly with the kids and generally having a lovely time.
Friday afternoon was mostly spent eating and exploring, there was so much going on the girls didn’t want to stay in one place for more than 5 minutes but it was fine by me – they were running, laughing, dancing away to Reggie and Bollie and just taking all the atmosphere around them in their stride.
The food stalls were amazing you really are spoilt for choice and we didn’t hold back at all when it came to the treats! Have to try a little of everything don’t you, food isn’t cheap at Camp Bestival but then it’s not a big shock – find me an event where it ever is?
As the day went on we found ourselves at the Big Fish Little Fish disco on the Bollywood stage, I cant tell you how much fun this is it’s a proper mini rave for children and the parents love it too! The girl were going mad you can see in the video I made of our day.
Once all the little dancing queens had well and truly danced their socks off we headed into the caravan bar (forgotten the actual name) which is so cool it’s like a bunch of retro looking caravans all in a circle with a bar and seating around. They had circus shows on in the clearing in the middle, the girls loved watching the man ‘go to space’ I have to say I felt nervous watching him up there!
It started getting late, the girls had been little balls of energy all day so they started to flag at about half 6, we went in search of some chips before heading back to the car!
Friday done! I love the photo below of the girls, it really does sum up the day for us lots of fun and excitement!
