*** 05-Jul-16: please note any bookings for tents pitched by us will not be available to buy on the website after 23JUL16 - which is when we will be on site. If this presents a difficulty for you please contact us directly - firstname.lastname@example.org. ***
“What do you recommend?”
We recommend booking a large tent with us. It is the most cost effective, and in our experience it gives you the full festival experience, under the stars!
So many families who had never before done ‘the camping thing’ loved the experience of it. We do the hard work for you. A brand new quality tent (typically retailing at £150 to £200+) will be set up for you awaiting your arrival. And if you wish, for a nominal charge it’s yours to take home and reuse. Please note that in order to manage the demand for tent accommodation and our supplies, we reserve the right to increase the tent prices at any time.
We cannot guarantee availability of a tent on the day and therefore strongly recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
A tent booked with us entitles you to park ONE car on the site next to your tent. There are plenty of toilet facilities nearby and our volunteers will be cleaning them all day long.
Your tent will be set up in one of three areas: women only, men only, or an area for couples/families. You will need to bring your own bedding. It’s a camping tent remember and so there will be no electrical sockets in the tent.
Important safety notes:
1) No driving will be allowed on the site thereafter under any circumstances! The safety of everyone makes this necessary.
2) Barbeques and heating facilities such as mini gas cookers are strictly prohibited.
All tents in the family/couples areas are the larger tents, you will be thankful for the extra space. We have kept the prices of these larger tents as low as we can. The smaller size tents (a basic tunnel shaped tent which can sleep 2 adults and 1 child) will only be in the women only and men only areas (they are not suitable for couples and are really intended for use by youth and singles).
There is also alternative options for camping offsite or staying at bed and breakfast. Please see the page on the Lincolnshire Showground website here.
