TAKING the kids the whole family to a festival sounds like most people s idea of hell but one festival promises to make it the most a painless and even fun experience.

TAKING the kids the whole family to a festival sounds like most people's idea of hell but one festival promises to make it the most a painless and even fun experience.

Camp Bestival from July 18 until 20 July at Lulworth Castle, Dorset, aims to bring back the great British Holiday Camp.

There will be tents devoted to music, comedy, literature, DJs, poetry, laughter library and knitting.

They are even throwing in fireworks, singalongs, sports, a theatre in the woods, films, a cockney knees up, a Come Dancing dance off and some campfire sessions.

Headlining the music stage will be Chuck Berry, The Flaming Lips, Billy Brag, Suzanne Vega, Kate Nash, Eliza Carthy and the Dulwich Ukulele Club.

Organisers promise hot showers with tea and toast while you wait, custom furnished tepees and yurts, maintained barbecues, a massive kids' area and the Bestival Bluecoats on hand.

Expect super-sized surrealism as this year's fancy dress theme is the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

A Dressing Up area including a separate kid's area and catwalk will help kids look as weird and wonderful as the grown ups.

Under 13s can get in free but need to get a free ticket.

Adult Weekend Tickets are £120 and children aged 13 to 15 are £60.

They are available at www.ticketline.co.uk and by contacting 0844 888 4410.
