Camp Bestival (The Greatest Family Show on Offer...at a Castle Campsite by the Sea) promises three days of activities, entertainment and food for all the family on top of all the excitement of camping. But in all the bustle, it's important to have a chill out zone with nothing more demanding than relaxing with the family.
Located in the Magic Meadow between the Castle Stage and the Big Top, Piriton* have created the Sneeze free Garden that will appeal to all the family: there's a play area and there's a beautiful garden area.
The garden is a riot of colourful 'sneeze free' low allergen plants, a canopy to sit under if (let's hope not!) there's rain and relaxing music.
In the play area two children's entertainers keep children happy and occupied with face painting, games and toys like hide and seek tunnels, a parachute, hula hoops and space hoppers. For extra calm fun for children there's a sandpit and low-level climbing frame.
There will also be a Did You Know? Allergy Advice Hut where adults can talk to an allergy expert and gain advice on allergies - not just hayfever, but treatment for stings, insect bites and skin allergies alongside pet allergies and food allergies.
Did You Know?
Some of the facts on show in the Allergy Advice Hut:
* The UK has the highest allergy rate in Europe, and is in the top three in the world.
* 95% of hayfever in Britain is caused by grass pollen.
* The most common allergies are: cats, dogs, dust mites, nuts, dairy, industrial/household chemicals, mould, pollen and insect bites.
This garden is low allergen, not no allergen – we cannot guarantee that you will be free of allergy symptoms.
*Piriton tablets and syrup contain chlorphenamine. Always read the label.
