Camp Bestival returns to Dreamland in April – The Isle Of Thanet News


Dreamland is teaming up with the UK’s favorite family festival again in April, as Camp Bestival brings a taste of its family festival to the park with full support. Expect live music, rides and entertainment for the whole family during the school holidays.

Dreamland Margate reopens on Saturday April 4 and is free to enter. Customers can pay per run or purchase discounted run wristbands in advance online to save 25%. Members travel for free.

Camp Bestival took Margate by storm in April 2019 when it set up camp at Dreamland, with over 100,000 visitors heading to the park during the spring school holidays. And this year’s takeover promises to be even bigger and brighter.

Enter the traveling circus of Camp Bestival as Dreamland transforms with extravagant decorations of streamers and swags, confetti cannons and carnival caravans – hosted by festival co-founders Josie and Rob da Bank. Families will have the chance to watch incredible performances by Circus Raj, featuring a troupe of acrobats, acrobats, musicians, loose rope walkers and giant puppets moving through the park in a colorful extravaganza of intrigue, drama, music, laughter and surprises.

Also appearing on the main stage will be Brillig, a goofy, bonkers and totally confusing game show that pits families against families in a fun frenzy. Around the park, guests can dive into nature workshops, join arts and crafts groups, dance at a family rave, and generally go crazy by the sea.

And once again, guests can join Camp Bestival’s unmissable Easter Sunday party on April 12, with a family-friendly rave, live music and very special headliners to be announced soon.

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said: “In a crazy world of uncertainty and flux, places like Dreamland are just the tonic for an escape and a magical break from reality. We love this place so much that we decided to come back and take it back in our inimitable Camp B style. It’s going to be a colorful and kaleidoscopic journey… See you soon on the rides!

Winner of ‘Best Family Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards 2019, Camp Bestival also promises to kick off the summer holidays in style with a weekend packed with family fun for all ages, at Lulworth Castle, Dorset, from 30 July to August 2.

The Camp Bestival takeover will take place during normal park hours. Check the Dreamland website for up-to-date opening hours
