Residents of Poole flats will be turning their block into an art gallery as part of the Light Up Poole festival of digital light art from 20 to 22 February.

Having taken two very different approaches to tackling the problem of wokeness, Douglas Murray and Andrew Doyle are now teaming up for a live tour. Each show will feature a conversation, along with an extensive audience Q&A, in which they will consider how best to resist the rise of the woke mindset, and the challenges it presents to individual liberty, intellectual diversity and free speech.

Camp Bestival is a family-friendly UK music festival taking place at Lulworth Castle, Dorset from Thursday 30 July to Sunday 2 August 2020. Created by Rob da Bank, who also founded its sister festival Bestival, Camp Bestival is still the most family excitement you can have in one weekend since its formation in 2008.

Camp Bestival 2020 is set to go to the movies this summer as the annual festival theme takes on the silver screen for a weekend full of movie madness. A brand-new open-air cinema is coming to the castle to celebrate this year’s film theme, along with sing-along-movie nights, film showcases and workshops.

Along with unmissable music across the weekend, there is also plenty of comedy, theatre, spoken word, cultural talks and activities to enjoy. A specially curated line-up of kids entertainment will keep young festival-goers happy, from The World’s Biggest Bouncing Castle to a spectacular fireworks display.

Last year’s Camp Bestival hosted an intergalactic weekend with an incredible line-up. The 2019 festival saw performances from Lewis Capaldi, Jess Glynne, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Annie Mac, The Human League and Bombay Bicycle Club, who sent revellers into another dimension with out-of-this-world performances for all the family.

So what are you waiting for? Roll out the red carpet and get ready for the biggest Camp Bestival yet – it’s set to be a blockbuster.
