Extra safety measures in place for Dorset's Camp Bestival
LULWORTH Castle will become a mecca for family fun and frolics this weekend as Camp Bestival festival returns after a two-year hiatus.
Renowned as one of the UK’s best family festivals, organisers are promising a packed programme of joyous music, amazing food, luxury camping and plenty of movie-themed family fun.
To ensure the three-day event can safely go ahead the Camp Bestival team have partnered with Dorset County Council and Dorset Police.
Stringent health and safety measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of festival-goers, staff and performers which goes beyond what is expected of organisers since the lifting of Covid restrictions on 19th July.
Anyone over 11 years will have to provide a negative Covid test before being allowed on site. All staff, including those who are double vaccinated, will also be required to take a lateral flow test every 72 hours.
A Camp Bestival spokesperson said: “The Camp Bestival team is very excited to be back in the Lulworth Estate’s spacious fields, preparing for our long-awaited movie-themed event.
“We’d like to extend our thanks to Dorset Council’s Safety Advisory Group, Public Health Dorset and Dorset Police who have worked with us over the past two years to ensure that the festival runs as safely and smoothly as possible.”
This year mainstage headline acts will include Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Friendly Fires, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dub Pistols, Cuban Brothers, Becky Hill, S Club Party, Level 42, Max and Harvey and The Sherlocks.
Organisers have also lined up plenty for children of all ages with Comedy Club 4 Kids, silly science, arts and crafts, Cosmic Kids Yoga, giant sandpits and circus skills workshops.
Day tickets are also available from £70 for adults and £10-£45 for children. For more in-formation and tickets visit www.campbestival.net
