What about food?
You can bring your own food and cooking equipment, or buy from the vans on-site. BBQs are allowed as long as they are lifted up so as not to burn the grass.
Note however that you can’t make your own open bonfire on-site – so don’t bother to bring marshmallows.

What if I get thirsty?
There will be free tea and coffee available for you to help yourself to all weekend… feel free to bring your own mug however you will NOT be able to fill this direct from the urns due to health/hygiene regulations, only the cups (recyclable!) provided can be filled from the urns.
There will also be a bar on-site and water / soft drinks for sale from the food outlets.

Can I off load all my kit from my car at the campsite?
Hopefully yes
Area 1 is for all caravans / camper vans / trailer tents / tents and any combination thereof; in this area, you can drive to your pitch ONLY if you are in a camper van or towing a caravan/ trailer tent, once you have unhooked your caravan etc you must move the towing vehicle to the car park as there is no space for parking on this field, non-towing vehicles will need to unload at the designated points on the access road.

Area 2 vehicular access to this field is weather dependent but if we’ve had good weather there will be an access road and unloading points around the outer perimeter of the field; you can also drive to the car park and use our hand carts to move your kit to the camping field. In the event of inclement weather, this will be reviewed near the event. This system will work in reverse for pack down on Sunday.

What if it rains?
You will get wet. This is Britain in the summer – bring waterproofs.

What if I want to be in a group?
One person can book in a whole group at once using the group booking form. You will receive an email reply which will allow you to add names to the group later if you do not know them when you make the booking. Otherwise, individuals can book and pay for themselves, and add a group leader name to their form, so that you can be grouped together. If you have a mixture of caravans/campervans and tents in your group, we will do our best to site you together, but this may not be possible (depending on the ground conditions on-site). However, the site is small so you won't ever be far away.

Will there be meetings?
Yep – we have one very large marquee where main meetings will take place, and there will be some opportunities for smaller groups to meet separately. There will be a few main meetings over the weekend, but plenty of time to relax too. Some of the meetings will take the form of seminars.

Will there be anything on offer for my not-yet believing mates?
We will be hosting some ‘just looking’ sessions where your friends (and you!) will be able to ask any questions you have and join others for discussion.

back to top



What if we don’t want to go to all the sessions?
You decide how much you want to take part in. If you spend all weekend catching up on your sleep, that’s fine.

Where can I hang out with my mates other than in my 2 man tent?
There will be a mess tent where you can get a drink and eat your food, hang out, arm wrestle, make top ten lists, look at the resource stands, play games and indoor sports, read, relax and chat.

I’m coming with my mates – can we camp together?
Yes, ideally try and arrive together or ensure you keep a space for your mates. We do not allocate camping pitches so it is first come first served! However the site isn’t massive, so you won’t be miles apart.

back to top



Do I need cash?
Almost definitely! Some of the stands / stalls will take card payments but the majority prefer cash. The bookshop will provide a ‘cashback service’ if required, but it is best to bring enough cash to cover your needs for the weekend.

I have physical needs – can I come?
Yes – We are doing everything we can to make the camp accessible for you. The site has a hard track around 2 sides that will make moving around easier, however, it is a farm, so there may be some areas of the site that are more difficult to access. There will be track matting laid to facilitate wheelchair access around the site. Signers will be available in all main sessions.
Please let us know when you book if you have extra needs so that we can make sure your van/tent is in the best place.
Disabled parking and camping are available near the site centre, please let us know if you need a pass for this car park.

What if I don’t want to camp?
You can stay off-site and come in daily – please contact the office to ensure we allocate you a parking permit for the designated off-Site delegates car park.
