Hotel Bell Tent & Up All Hours babysitters have got it covered!

Do you love the idea of enjoying a festival with your kids – but also get excited at the prospect of having some time for the grown ups to explore and relax, without the little ones? New Hotel Bell Tent partners ‘Up All Hours’ have got it covered with a babysitting service that is convenient and – most importantly – safe.


Up All Hours was established by a team of professionals with a background in security services who have put their skills to use providing family friendly facilities at events across the UK, with the sole aim of making parents’ lives easier!  In 2015 they created hubs of activity and much-needed R&R for parents and kids alike, as well as operating the Lost Child facilities at the Big Feastival.

At CarFest North and CarFest South 2016, Up All Hours are offering a service that gives parents complete assurance and the chance to grab some ‘us’ time and make the most of all of that fabulous entertainment that CarFest has to offer, including Bryan Adams, Billy Ocean and The Corrs.

Parents at Hotel Bell Tent will have the opportunity to pre-book up to thirty DSB-checked babysitters (each night) to sit in their pre-booked accommodation on any, or all, of the three evenings of the festival.  Each booking will be based on a 7pm to 12pm time slot.  And for real peace of mind, Up All Hours is developing a track able wristband that parents will be able to purchase for their child allowing the Up All Hours Team to secure the perimeter of the boutique camping area and monitor the whereabouts of the child.

There will also be the option to select one of twenty slots in the cosy, sleep-filled Up All Hours crèche tent, where children can nestle down with a bedtime story, then get into their own sleeping bag and go to sleep for the evening under the watchful eye of the Up All Hours team.  Older children can also be dropped off to watch a film in a separate area of the tent before being taken back to their own accommodation to sleep or if parents prefer, they could put their little ones to sleep in their own accommodation and install an Up All Hours video monitor that will then be monitored by the Up All Hours team between the hours of 7pm and 11pm. As above, there is also the option of a track able wristband.

The finishing touches of the Up All Hours booking system are currently being finalised.  Interested parents are able to register their interest here, and will then be contacted when the pre-bookable slots are released.

Up All Hours will also be providing a babysitting service at Hotel Bell Tent at Camp Bestival.  More details to be confirmed soon.
