Our first appearance at the award-winning Camp Bestival started on the Wednesday with the set up of our SMILEY-HALVES Gazebo. Set in the beautiful grounds of Lulworth Castle the SMILEY shop stood out looking amazing with all the fantastic products including the new neon Legendary t-shirts and water bottles. We were ready for 4 jam packed days of Collect & Connecting with great music, performances and activities for all ages happening all over the festival.
The response to the SMILEY-HALVES was amazing from the get-go with the children creating there very own fidget trading area swapping their smiley-halves to make the emoticon faces they wanted.
By the end of the festival there were SMILEY-HALVES everywhere as the collectable craze had spread throughout all areas of the festival and with posts being sent to our social media channels, we were enjoying seeing the smiles.
There was also plenty going on at the festival with performances from Blossoms, Sara Cox, Level 42, Mr Tumble, Tim Burgess, Self Esteem, Georgia, Craig Charles, S Club Party to name a few.
The music was fantastic with Beck Hill playing her first ever headline, Fatboy slime celebrating his birthday onstage and Groove Armada Super Stylin’. There was so much to see and do and we the atmosphere was so friendly we look forward to a potential return in 2022.
