This year I’m very excited to be an official Camp Bestival blogger. I wrote here about how excited I am and today I want to tell you about the amazing discoveries and oddities that have been announced this week.
Rob De Bank says: “We’ve got all sorts of incredible curiosities coming to Camp Bestival this year. From off the wall circus treats in the Caravan of Lost Souls, LEGO and their brilliant Imagination Factory, and surveying the site with a camp-bestiscope in Oberon’s Observatory to the mayhem of Britain’s Not Got Talent and amazing experiments in the Science Tent, there’s loads of ace stuff for all the family to discover. See you at Lulworth Castle!”
Yes Lego are coming to Camp Bestival! A celebration of free building in the shape of The Imagination Factory. The only rule in The Imagination Factory is that there are no rules, no rights or wrongs, just inspiration to let your imagination run wild in lego form. We love lego, and since watching The Lego Movie the children have taken the idea of free building and really run with it. I’ve no doubt that they will enjoy visiting The Imagination Factory.
Since we used to work as circus artists we’re excited to see the next announced curiosity. Igor Rasputin’s Caravan of Lost Souls is an incredible ape powered pop up circus. With magic, contortion, hula hoop, mime and more from this cabaret of curiosity popping up in all four corners of Camp Bestival.
If we’re inspired to revisit our circus skills as a family we might even consider performing in Mosschops and Sidewick’s ‘Britains Not Got Talent’. Talented or not they’re not fussy, anything goes in this particular show.
I know that our family scientist Super Kid is going to want to visit the Science Tent. It will feature a glorious mix of science based performances like now>press>play and Rock Guitar in 11 dimensions, timetabled science and drop in sessions. So if you fancy programming robots, or making video games with play dough this is the place for you with tons to stimulate and fascinate every age group.
I’m so excited about everything that’s happening at Camp Bestival 2014, and the only problem is how to fit it all in. If you fancy being there too here is all the ticket information.
