Ok we have a table booked at 12.00hrs at the Kings Arms in Wareham 26th July. If you want to join us we are the only booking at present so they have space. I imagine it will get busy closer to the event - it looks a lovely pub and the location seems perfect for our needs.

Cheers

Hope to catch up.

Yes highly recommend Camp Bestival, we’ve been going for years - this year for the first in our own Cali, thank goodness as the weather Saturday night was awful and those in tents suffered far worse that we did. (It was cancelled Sunday due to high winds but has never happened to us before). Yes it’s expensive for tickets but a whole weekend of entertainment. Lots of food choices and none of the family will get bored! Take refillable water bottles and your own loo rolls ;)

We enjoyed it, but won't be back next year. We paid to upgrade to backstage camping so it was costing us about £400 a day- I didn't expect to be sharing 4 showers with approx 200 tents and 150 camper vans/motor homes.

Also the decent acts start around 21.00hrs so not exactly family friendly.

It is good and there are loads of activities laid on for the kids during the day but overall it was the camping with friends we enjoyed most from the weekend.
