Camp Bestival 2017, which returns for its 10th edition from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th July, to the picturesque setting of Lulworth Castle, Dorset. has announced activities for its redesigned Sports' Park, which features workshops with Chelsea FC and Hampshire Cricket Junior Academy, plus a wealth of fun and games that the whole family can enjoy.

Rob da Bank Says: "Camp Bestival is many things -  a family festival, a mum and dad’s knees-up, a village fete next to a castle, but it’s always been energetic and sporty, and we’re pleased to announce a reinvigorated Sports Park for 2017. The da Banks are Saints fans at heart but no one can knock the fact that Premiere League winners Chelsea FC are coming to Camp along with Hampshire Cricket, and not forgetting crazy golf and beach volleyball… see you in the sandpit!"

English Premier League Champions Chelsea are heading up the activities in the Sports Park, with CFC Summer Football Camp coaching staff giving a taste of what it’s like to win the top flight and imparting the club ethos to eager youngsters with 5-a-side, pop-up penalty shoot-outs and more. Plus, you might just catch sight of a dazzling replica of the Premier League Trophy too! 

If you prefer smaller balls and the sound of leather on willow, then there's Hampshire Cricket Junior Academy with a series of workshops and sessions with their best batsmen, bowlers and coaches to help you improve your action or shot selection.

If something more extreme floats your boat, you can rock tail-slides, kickflips and grab air with skate pros showing you the best way to attack the Skate Park hosted by Team Extreme. If walking is more your pace you can play a round of Crazy Golf, and for the more-energetic there's Beach Volleyball. There's also some simpler pursuits including Ping-Pong, BoulesHoopla and more. 

Camp Bestival is headlined by Mark Ronson, Madness, and Brian Wilson playing 'Pet Sounds' in full. Also confirmed are All Saints, Holly Johnson, Leftfield, Louisa Johnson, and Bootleg Beatles, with DJs and soundsystems including Skream, David Rodigan presents Ram Jam, Raindance, Big Fish Little Fish, and more, and along with the music there's comedy and kids shows too. Please see the Camp Bestival line-up for all of the music act details announced so far.
