SUPERVILLAIN The Joker turned superhero in front of admiring youngsters at a family festival with the help of Area 51 and its renowned freak master Igor Rasputin. The theme for Camp Bestival 2019 was superheroes and with 51 once again tasked with entertaining at Lulworth Castle in Dorset, the company’s infamous Caravan Of Lost Souls was given a child-friendly makeover.

And regular host Igor Rasputin was joined by The Joker as the caravan unleashed a cavalcade of acts that drew gasps and cheers at the festival which is the sister event to Bestival and is organised by Radio One DJ Rob da Bank.

Child contortionist star Sophelia Skye drew admiration from the large audiences for her incredible foot archery routines and super-bendy performances throughout the weekend. Making the event even more special was the fact that children of regular Area 51 performers also took part in the shows.

Area 51 entertainers joined members of the public and cosplay enthusiasts to take part in a superheroes parade that weaved its way around the festival site, including the company’s stunning Incredible Hulk costumed character.
