Find Astronomical Fun at our Brand New Stage – Space Camp!

Adding even more to Camp Bestival 2024 at Lulworth Castle, we’ve given our old science tent a space age upgrade to create Space Camp! Featuring cosmic workshops, intergalactic activities and out of this world performances, it’s the place for space-based amusements, with a host of hands-on fun, informative extravaganzas, and astronomical entertainment.

With a wealth of workshops and activities, be sure to explore the wonders of the universe in our state-of-the-art Planetarium, become a space-walking astronaut with the VR Experience, don one of our Space Costumes, and touch the cosmos with a session of Meteorite Handling. Have an out of this world LEGO encounter with Brickies Space LEGO Building, get stuck into a host of creativity workshops with STEAM Co rocket making, t-shirt printing, cardboard crafting and rocket launches (small donations welcome) , and dare to enter the dome of noise with Noisy Toys Musical Installations. Award-winning poet Harry Man is on hand to help you bring the cerebral and celestial together in playful verse with his Space Poetry workshops, the Silly Science crew have a myriad of mad experiments to enthral one and all, Alien Slime Craft oozes all the right kind of fun and find out how we learned to use the sun to tell the time at a Sundial Craft workshop.

There is also a multiverse of stage performances at Space Camp throughout the weekend including, Space Rebel Princess who faces a rocketry or royalty quandary, the Bonkers Balloon Science Show featuring spills, thrills explosions and pops from Becky the Balloonatic, Space & Science Raps with Jon Chase dropping the beats and knowledge, Brickies Space Lego Competitions challenging you to build the tallest rocket or quickest alien, and Silly Science Shows presenting a hi-energy, fun-tastic family show full of laughs, science and silly surprises. Plus, we have Bass in Your Face, 50 Million Tonnes, STEAM Co – Rocket Kids on Planet Disco (small donations welcome) , and enchanting astronaut and moon installations!

Guaranteed to be out of this world, make Space Camp part of your orbit at Camp Bestival this July.
