What's on?

King Henry VIII and his courtiers are once more going on tour to Lulworth Castle in Dorset, to enjoy the splendours of the award-winning music festival!

Festival goers will be able to step into a Tudor village and have the chance to meet Henry VIII and his court.

You'll be able to watch Tudor crafts people at work, experience our Tudor theatre shows, shoot a crossbow and find out what life was really like at Hampton Court Palace in the 16th century.

Set in the grounds of Lulworth Castle on Dorset’s dramatic Jurassic coastline, Camp Bestival is jam-packed with entertainment for the whole family, including a comprehensive arts programme and live music with headliners Mark Ronson, All Saints and the cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock.
