Camp Bestival 2020 Cancelled

We've received the saddening news that the last event we were planned to work with in 2020, Camp Bestival, has been cancelled.

Due to the ongoing situation we find ourselves in, it would not be safe for any of us to head to Lulworth Castle in July.

Last year was our first time working with the Camp Bestival festival family, and although it was an incredibly busy week for us...to say the least! We loved every minute of it, so were very much looking forward to heading back to Dorset this summer. We are again so sorry you will not be able to join us at Camp Bestival this year, although hope you will be heading back with us come summer 2021!

The messages we have received following this cancellation have been lovely, so another big thank you to everyone who has been in touch, again for your patience waiting for the official announcement, and for your messages of support. They really do make all the difference in such a difficult time for us all.

Looking to deposits...

In a normal year deposit returns are processed after the event and sent by cheque; this year we know everyone needs every penny as quickly as possible so we'll be processing deposit refunds ASAP.

If you have paid a deposit and have a confirmed position, or you have cancelled, for Camp Bestival, your deposit refund will be processed as below.

For those who paid by card the refunds will come straight back to your card. We plan to send card refunds within 48 hours, please note once we have sent your refund it can take up to 7 days for a refund to show on your statement.

For those who paid by cheque or bank transfer we will contact you within 48 hours to arrange a refund, so please keep an eye on your email.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call the office or get in touch via one of our socials.

Stay safe and look after each other.

We very much hope we will be seeing you in a music filled festival field soon 😊
