In pictures: Bestival's London session


Bestival hosted a one-off session in London, allowing guests to experience the music festival before it moves to its new site in Dorset.

The session took place on 25 March at The House of St Barnabas in London's Soho, and invited guests to experience Festival Embassy presented by Bestival.

Guests were able to enjoy sets from rising stars, intimate acoustic gigs, renowned and emerging DJs and more in a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse and secluded courtyard garden. Visitors could also participate in workshops, including a 'Sound Bath' experience which encouraged people to let go of their worries and stress. A tie dye workshop and Mother's Day card-making experience were also on offer. 

Food was provided by Zoe's Ghana Kitchen Brunch, which provided guests with bottomless brunches. Tickets could be purchased via a 'Pay it Forward' scheme, which meant that for every ticket bought, another would be passed on to participants or graduates of the House’s Employment Academy. 

Bestival announced its relocation to Dorset in December last year, following a fall in visitor numbers. 

More: Yesterday it was announced that Global has appointed a new commercial team dedicated to festivals.
