Please excuse a review from further afield, but with the summer holidays upon us it's a great time to get out there and experience events elsewhere.

Camp Bestival can lay claim as the best family festival as no other has so much tailored to entertaining children. There are dozens of attractions from an art and craft marquee to big name entertainers like Mr Tumble and Dick and Dom.

This year the Bigtopmania was our favourite. Dave Benson Phillips has that special knack of entertaining children and adults at once. Lucas Jet and his 'twin' Moses surely deserve every bit of success in the business that will hopefully come their way, their buoyant personalities shining through in their comedic circus skills show.

There was a great clown and a fantastic children's disco complete with lots of huge balloons that sent the children crazy with excitement. For us older ones Brian Wilson singing the Beach Boy's hits was fantastic.

For this 90s kid Lightning Seeds played a wonderful set. Right Said Fred and All Saints were great fun and Leftfield's set before the fireworks finale was another great throwback.
