Literary Institute

 

Guaranteed to be an enclave of enlightenment throughout the weekend, the Literary Institute is Camp Bestival’s oasis of inspiration offering insight and entertainment throughout the weekend. Brimming with inviting sofas and cosy armchairs, sit back, relax and feed your mind with everything from quizzes to advice on doing what you love this July at Lulworth Castle. 

Our learned leader Rob da Bank says: “The Literary institute is one of the most amazing things at Camp Bestival. Giving the grown-ups a relaxing retreat while the kids have a ball, there’s tons of inspirational stuff from talks and quizzes to some of the best poets around. I always learn something new and amazing whenever I head in there!
