Who can remember the hours of fun of bouncy castles? As children we grew up with them and as adults, many of us will stand and watch our children reliving the fun. Bouncy castles are a staple in the world of school fairs, festivals and children’s entertainment. But why restrict it to children?
Here at Women UK, we’ve just received this notice from the PR people behind Bestival and Camp Bestival and guess what – we can’t wait to try it out!!
The Bestival family have teamed up with Cardiff based Something Creatives to make, that they think is the world’s biggest bouncy castle! Making it’s debut this weekend at Common People in Southampton, the bouncy castle will then join Camp Bestival at Lulworth Castle later this summer.
Rob da Bank says: “We do love breaking a record and this is one of our funnest builds so far. Me and my mate Matt from the infamous Inflatable Church had a pipe dream about five years ago of building the world’s biggest bouncy castle, and this summer we’re making that a reality. So polish your socks and step up for what will be one of the most innocent of pleasures – bouncing up and down with gay abandon with your mates, family or friendly
strangers. See you on the castle!”
Something Creatives’ Matt the Hat commented: “I’ve always been the first kid in the sandpit and consider play a fundamental part of everyday life. Everyone should find the time to play.
The playful spirit of creating joy and fun is shared by Rob da Bank and all of the Bestival family and has made this brilliantly bonkers idea a reality. Whether you’re young or old, what could be more fun than jumping around inside the biggest bouncy castle in the world? Just watch out for the ‘bouncers’, and remember if you’re wearing shoes then you can’t come in!”
Everyone loves a bouncy castle. That’s a fact. And we’ve got even more facts about our blow up bastion that could see us heading for the record books once again. Smashing an almost 20-year- old record and measuring a frankly epic 23.8 metres long and 20.7 metres wide our bouncy castle stands 12.8 metres tall at its highest point; the side turrets are equal in height to the walls of Cardiff Castle, making it taller than the Great Wall of China and
roughly three times the size of the Berlin Wall! Filled with 1143 cubic metres of air it can comfortably accommodate 100 pleasure-seeking festival goers at one time.
Quite simply massive, it’s an inflatable legend in the making, don’t miss the chance to have a jump around on our historic bouncy castle at Common People, Southampton this 28th &; 29th May, and then at Camp Bestival 28th -31st July and Bestival from 8th – 11th September.
