Camping passes are valid for one day, a combination of days or a full weekend all to suit your needs. Campers can set up from 12pm (noon) on Thursday 24th August or other days as required. If you have an Individual Day Ticket, you need to leave the site by 12pm (noon) the following morning to allow for other campers to pitch their tents.

 

CAN I CHOOSE MY CAMPING PITCH?

Pitches are allocated on arrival by staff at the campsite, requests to move or re-locate once allocated must be made to the staff at the campsite. The Festival has no control over pitch allocation. The site is managed by the Rugby Club for the duration of the Festival.

There is hard standing space for 30 pitches, theses will be allocated on first come first serve basis to those who are booking Full Festival Camping passes from the Thursday to Tuesday.

 

DO YOU OFFER ELECTRIC PITCHES?

Unfortunately, there are no power hook-ups available at the campsite due to the nature and ordinary usage of the site. A generator may be used but requests may be made by campsite security to turn it off during night-time hours.

We do allow well-behaved dogs onto the campsite, and as a responsible owner we would ask you to make sure that you clean up after your dog. We do not allow any breeds of dog listed under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.

At this current time this includes:

Pit Bull Terrier

Japanese Tosa
