We’re Going to Bestival 2022!


We are very excited to be heading to Camp Bestival in Dorest this year. Our very own Claire Hodgson is leading the charge as we help Bestival try to beat the world record for the largest EVER disco dance!

If you caught her onstage in Mid Life, you’ll know Claire is no stranger to the disco, and this year, she will be teaching the choreography to a routine that aims to bust through the previous  record of 324 dancers.

I grew up doing competitive disco dancing with my brother and sister and the love of it has never left me. For me, disco is a liberating style of dance – easy to learn, fantastic fun to do!

We Are Family by Sister Sledge is a classic track –  what an incredible opportunity to create a routine for it! – Claire Hodgson


If you’re going to Bestival, please consider signing up to be a record breaker here.

The routine is simple, easy to learn, and can be performed by disabled and non disabled people alike. If you are attending Camp Bestival with a PA or carer who can support you in taking part in this challenge, please email their name to [email protected].  Anyone with a PA pass will not need to pay the entry fee but will still receive a glittery cape to wear on the day! The event will be BSL interpreted.

If you haven’t bought your tickets to the festival yet, you can find tickets to Bestival here.
