Caravanserai- Camp Bestival 
Rimski's Yard Stage will be host to bands, DJ's, circus & cabaret acts this year!

In 2019 Caravanserai invited Rimski's Yard to be part of their world at Camp Bestival. Created by Pete Bateman & curated by Chris Tofu, of Continental Drifts... A higgeldy-piggeldy conjunction of caravans, with seating booths, stages, entertainment  for all ages, circus, bands and DJ's... see reel below (thanks to Emma Pengelly-Phillips) showing a patchwork of delightful moments from the 2019 festival.  

We are delighted to be returning with Rimski's Yard this year (2021) in a slightly different capacity, as the main outdoor stage (instead of Camionettes).  

There will be plenty of Wind Ups with Rimski & Handkerchief, including of course,  performances with the bicycle piano & double bassicle, plus magical midnight Wind Downs, with an intimate cabaret feel, featuring a variety of surprise special guest artists!

" I wish I could live at Rimski's Yard all year round. In 15 years of putting on festivals, I've never been so captivated, intrigued & enamoured, with an act such as this" - Rob Da Bank, co-founder of camp Bestival
