Camp Bestival Shropshire 17th - 20st August 2023

Join us for  Camp Bestival Shropshire, a stellar sister show to the UK’s favourite family festival coming to Weston Park* 17th-20st August 2023. Following hot on the heels of the pioneering Dorset-based jamboree which will take place next July, Camp Bestival Shropshire will be bringing all the unique and essential elements of the original Camp Bestival to the heart of England.

“Whoop! The da Bank house is about to explode with excitement that we can finally announce our first new festival for many years as we unleash Camp Bestival Shropshire! Set in the heart of England, Josie and I couldn’t be prouder or more delighted to have finally found a site that’s not only worthy of a second Camp Bestival, but is also exquisitely beautiful. Weston Park has all the elements we love from magical woodlands and oodles of green fields to lakes and a historic stately home backdrop.

Following the success of Camp Bestival in Dorset, we’re over the moon to be adding this new event to our festival family to meet popular geographical and practical demand. We plan to give this festival as much love and attention as our heritage festival in Lulworth and can’t wait to see you all back at one or the other…or possibly both!”

Love Robby, Josie and the Camp Bestival family

WELCOME TO WESTON PARK

An ardent take on Team CB’s tried and tested recipe, Camp Bestival Shropshire will make a home in Weston Park’s immaculate grounds designed by England’s greatest gardener, Capability Brown. A wonderland of expansive green spaces, luxuriant lawns, verdant parkland, and enchanting woodlands, festivalgoers can enjoy a host of glittering family treats from our famous kids’ gardens jam-packed with action, and all manner of frolics and fun, to magic meadows and whole arenas abounding with a myriad of screen free activities for kids of all ages.

Curated by Josie and Rob da Bank, with the help of a long-established backroom crew, as every edition has been since it launched in 2008, Camp Bestival truly is a family affair. So, adding Camp Bestival Shropshire to the well-loved Dorset original gives us the opportunity to spread the joy, bringing the very best family festival adventure to an even wider audience.

Camp Bestival Shropshire takes place at Weston Park on 17th-20st August 2023 (three weeks after Camp Bestival Dorset). News and details of the line-up, entertainment and activities will be announced soon.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
