  1. I’d love to take our son to a festival as it would be my first too. We were due to go to another thus year but with so impending move to another country we’ve had to postpone it. Hopefully once we’re settled we can look at some festivals for next year and Camp Bestival is definitely on my radar!

  2. Every year I see Camp Bestival and keep meaning to look more into it, so this post is perfect! It looks like such fun and the fact it’s family friendly makes it even better 🙂
