Camp Bestival was once again a success this year and a brand new event has been announced for next year which will bring the festival to a new audience.

The organizers will present a twin show at the Based in Dorset jamboree which has won the UK Festival Awards Best Family Festival six times.

After its Dorset Festival at Lulworth Castle in July, the new event will come to Weston Park in Shropshire next August.

The new festival will have all the family events of the one in Dorset but right in the heart of England.

Camp Bestival will bring together all the theater workshops, shows, well-being and circus shows that have earned the famous festival its title.

You can also expect side hustle, comedy and a wide range of delicious food and drink amid the expansive grounds and woods of Weston Park.

The beautiful gardens, designed by England’s foremost gardener, Capability Brown, will host extensive camping areas, including a backstage camping area.

You can also park your motorhomes or caravans if you prefer more traditional comfort.

Speaking about the announcement, Festival co-curators Josie & Rob da Bank said, “Oops! House da Bank is about to explode with excitement that we can finally announce our first new festival in many years as we release Camp Bestival Shropshire!

“Located in the heart of England, Josie and I could not be prouder or more delighted to have finally found a site that is not only worthy of a second Camp Bestival, but is also exquisitely beautiful.

“Weston Park has all the elements we love, from magical forests and piles of green fields to lakes and the backdrop of a historic stately home.

“Following the success of Camp Bestival in Dorset, we are delighted to add this new event to our family of festivals to meet popular geographic and practical demand.

“We plan to give this festival as much love and attention as our Heritage Festival in Lulworth and we look forward to seeing you all again at one or the other…or maybe both!”

Fans of Camp Bestival’s music lineup won’t be disappointed either with the Shropshire-based event which will host a variety of “legendary heavyweights to some of the most exciting and upcoming acts”.

There will be something for everyone with all your pop, rap, rock, dance, dub skiffle, swing favorites set to feature on their iconic stages including the Big Top, Bollywood, Caravanserai, Pig’s Big Ballroom and more.
