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

The organizers will host a twin show at the Based on Dorset jamboree which has won the title of Best Family Festival from the UK Festival Awards six times.

After his Dorset Festival at Lulworth Castle in July, the new event will arrive at Weston Park in Shropshire next August.

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

Camp Bestival will bring together all the theater, performance, wellness and circus workshops that have earned the famous festival its title.

You can also expect side events, comedies and a wide range of delicious food and drink amidst the expansive grounds and woods of Weston Park.

The beautiful gardens, designed by Capability Brown, England’s leading gardener, will host spacious camping areas, including a behind-the-scenes camping area.

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

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

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

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

“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 at one or the other… or maybe both!”

Fans of Camp Bestival’s music lineup will also not be disappointed with the Shropshire-based event which will host a variety of “legendary heavyweights at some of the most exciting acts to come”.

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

The new family festival will be based in Weston Park in Shropshire.
