“Prepare to create some very strong memories at our beautiful seaside castle, from the iconic Grace Jones and party starter Craig David to perennial favorites Horrible Histories, Junior Jungle and you gotta shoot a cracker at the party Christmas from East 17.”

Camp Bestival favorites The Cuban Brothers will make an appearance, as will original reggae breeder David Rodigan and Jo Whiley.
