Camping:-

 

What is a Weekend Camping Pass?

A Weekend Camping Pass covers 1 'camping unit'.

 

What is a ‘camping unit’?

A 'camping unit' is either a tent, trailer tent or caravan … or sleeping in, on or alongside a 4x4/car/campervan/motorhome/truck.

Vehicles under 9.9m in length pay the Standard rate, vehicles over 10m pay the Recreational Vehicle rate - both rates listed below.

 

How is the campsite laid out?

Standard camping policy applies, pitches to be 6m apart as a fire precaution. This has always been standard policy at our events, nowadays it's transpired this is also a sensible precaution against the spread of Covid-19.

Vehicles may be parked between units, provided that 3m clear space is left within the 6m gap.

 

What types of Weekend Camping Pass can I buy?

2-Wheel Weekend Camping Pass (for riders and/or pillion passengers of bicycles/motorbikes)

Standard 4-Wheel Weekend Camping Pass (for owners of cars/vans/motorhomes/trucks under 9.9m long)

Recreational Vehicle Weekend Camping Pass (for owners of RVs and any vehicles over 10m long)

Due to the lifting of covid restrictions, in addition to online booking in advance, pay-on-the-gate is once again possible. Cash only, plastic not acceptable.

 

How do I book and pay for a Weekend Camping Pass?

Book online by clicking on the TicketSource logo top right-hand side of this page. You will receive an E-ticket via SMS text message, email or post. Only online booking in advance is possible for this event.

Download and print your E-ticket for scanning at the gate upon arrival, or it can be scanned directly off you phone (not always ideal as phones get lost/damaged so are difficult to scan, or they simply lose charge) - printed E-tickets are far more secure and faster to process upon arrival.

NOTE: When booking camping, remember that children under 16 years go FREE, so they will not appear on E-tickets. Instead they will be issued a wristband at Check-in upon arrival.

F.A.Qs

Q:  Are dogs welcome?

A:  Yes ... on short leads and under control at all times, plus ‘clean up’ is essential. Due to several dog-related incidents in the past (dog fights or even attacking visitors), owners who let their dogs run loose will be warned just once, any further breeches to the rules they will be escorted off site with no refund. We really don't want to impose a blanket ban on dogs from attending, hence the strict rules.

 

Q:  What facilities are there for persons with disabilities?

A:  The venue is very 'disabled friendly' with all buildings accessible including ramps, lifts, toilets and showers. For Day Visitors - Blue Badge Disabled Parking is available.

 

Q:  Is there a Disabled Camping Area?

A:  Yes. For blue badge holders there are two areas allocated for those with mobility issues ... 'Disabled Camping Area - Grass'. This is an area on level mowed grass. Simply inform the Gate Marshal upon arrival ... and have your Blue Badge ready for presentation. No Blue Badge, you will be moved on to a Standard Camping Pitch. Unfortunately there is no electricity available in this area.

The second area is called 'Disabled Camping Area - Hard-Standing'. This is a small area set aside where electricity is essential (ventilators, etc. - not just to make a cuppa!!!). An electricity supply can be arranged at cost. Please enquire in advance about the 'Disabled Camping Area - Hard-Standing' Area as it can't be arranged 'on the day'.

 

Q:  Are there any concessions?

A:  Only one - carers of disabled persons. How does this work? The disabled person books and pays for standard Day Admission and Camping (if relevant) in the normal way - either online in advance here or pay cash at the gate upon arrival.

Then the Registered Carer must provide proof at the gate upon arrival. This can be in the form of written proof of Carer's Allowance or a local authority Carer's Emergency Card.  No proof ... no complimentary pass!

 

Q:  What facilities are there for regular campers?

A:  Toilets, showers, chemical toilet disposal points, laundry.

 

Q:  What are 2-Wheel, Standard 4-Wheel and Recreational Vehicle Camping Pitches?

A:  All camping Pitches are on grass, not lawns manicured to putting green standard. This is because in June the 'buttercup grass' is used for silage (winter feed) for animals. Longer grass soon folds down to become a green & yellow carpet which also prevents the ground becoming muddy. A combination of mowed grass, rain and vehicle movement/foot traffic quickly turns green areas into brown mud baths, whereas longer grass flattens out and stays green for the duration of the show!

 

Q:  Is pre-event camping possible?

A:  Yes!  Pre-event camping is available anytime from 13:00 Tuesday 31st May 2022 to Thursday 2nd June 2022 @ just £10 per night for vehicles under 9.9m long, and @ £18 per night for vehicles over 10m long. No need to pre-book, simply pay in cash upon arrival (plastic not accepted).

NOTE: Campers are advised to arrive before the rush on Friday 3rd June 2022. Queues of 1 hour or more were commonplace for the 'Spring' show in June 2021. This was unusual as normally it's only 10-15 minutes at worst, but as the event grows, so do the queues!

 

Q:  What happens if I arrive after 21:00 on Tues 31st May, Wed 1st June, Thurs 2nd June, Fri 3rd June or Sat 4th June 2022 ?

A:  Due to safety reasons, at 21:00 each night a temporary 'Overnight Holding Area' operates until 09:00 the following morning.

In effect this means that should you arrive at the venue after 21:00 you can still 'get in', camp and avail yourself of all the facilities (toilets, showers, etc.), plus entertainment in two marquees ("Severn Cider Beer Tent" with rock/middle of the road covers bands + Tom Dibb's "Campervan Live Lounge" - more 'chilled out' music) and quality hot food from the catering outlets up until midnight. In the morning it's then possible to collect your pre-paid passes/wristbands at Check-in, then drive to the designated campsite safely in daylight ... so in actual fact there is very little difference, except for the fact the Overnight Holding Area is one side of a five-bar gate, the regular campsite the other!

It is solely because we staff that five-bar security gate 24 hours a day that enables us as organisers to legally fulfil Health & Safety requirements, thus keeping our Public Liability Insurance valid.

We have ample room for camping, so rest assured you will never be turned away through lack of space.

 

Q:  Is single night camping available?

A:  No … sorry!  This is due to some dishonest individuals in the past booking and paying for camping just one night (Friday), then staying over until Monday morning! A Camping Permit at our events (valid for up to 3 nights Fri-Sun) actually costs just £20, so whether 1 or 3 nights, £20 is excellent value. Adult Day Admission is in addition to the Camping Permit.

The Camping Permit PLUS Adult Day Admission = WEEKEND CAMPING PASS.

 

Q:  What are the times of arrival Friday to Sunday over the event weekend? 

A: Friday 3rd June 2022

Trade/camping gate opening hours 13:00 – 21:00 (after which an Overnight Holding Area operates until the following morning)

Access to indoor trade stands within the grandstands complex ceases at 20:00

Q:  When do campers have to depart?

A:  Campers must leave the venue by 16:00 Monday 6th June 2022.

 

Q  What facilities are available?

A:  There are several standard/disabled toilet blocks housed within the grandstands complex and a central permanent brick building adjacent to the various campsites. Showers are at these locations as well. There are five mains water supply for campers, but unfortunately no electric hook-ups. Wheelchairs, mobility scooters, phones, etc. can however be charged at the Event Office free of charge. There is also a laundry in the Touring Park behind the clock tower. Lastly there are two Elsan disposal points. The first is in the centre of the racecourse, to the rear of the Night Market (no vehicle access - so on foot only), while it's possible to drive to the second disposal point, again to the rear of the clock tower.

TO PREVENT BLOCKING TOILETS AND CAUSING A MESS, DO NOT EMPTY YOUR CAMPER'S ELSAN TOILET CASSETTE INTO TEMPORARY 'TARDIS-TYPE' TOILETS ... or brick-built for that matter! CAMPERS IGNORING THIS BASIC RULE WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHED AND BANNED FROM FUTURE EVENTS! WHY SO HARSH? OTHERS HAVE TO USE THESE TOILETS, PLEASE RESPECT THEIR NEEDS.

 

Overseas visitors attending the show: To help offset high ferry costs, owners of vehicles NOT registered in the UK, plus those from the offshore islands of Great Britain and Northern Ireland automatically receive 50% discount. Also eligible are vehicles registered to addresses in the Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Shetland Islands and even the Isle of Wight ... as there's still water to cross! Residents of Canvey Island, the Isle of Dogs, Eel Pie Island  or any other 'inshore' islands however are not eligible!
