How does it work?
When you arrive, you'll be able to sign up to as many activities as you want to, all included in your weekend ticket price of £80.
There will be multiple time slots for each activity, so that we can keep group sizes nice and small, and give everyone a chance to do everything if they want to. We have a fantastic team of instructors and experts on board to deliver the activities and give you advice over the weekend.
Can I bring my family?
Families are welcome to come and enjoy the free camping for the weekend, but the activities are only available for women. Husbands can come and put up the tent, cook for you, and then disappear for the day with the kids leaving you to enjoy yourself.
Where to stay
Free camping (basic)
You can chose to camp on site for no extra charge. The camping areas are very basic, but do include running water, flushing loos, flat ground for tents, sheltered areas for cooking and gravel areas for campervans. You can also make use of a shared indoor space. There are no showers on site, but the river is very refreshing!
If you like camping, but want some creature comforts, the nearest campsite is The Riverside Caravan Park
, just 5 miles from the event. With a small pool, and the usual campsite facilities, it offers a little more luxury than our patch of grass! Early booking is advised.
There are a few options nearby catering for all budgets. Check out the hotel listings here.
