    What about Glamping?

    CAMPING MIGHT NOT FOR EVERYONE, BUT WE DEFY ANYONE TO NOT ENJOY GLAMPING!

    Glampers will be located in the exclusive Glamping village where you’ll find all those essential home comforts, including luxury toilets and showers. Treat yourself in the deluxe parlour tent which includes table mirrors, hair dryers & straighteners and feel as fresh as a daisy the whole weekend. The village also has a kitchen tent with access to hot water and fridges making it easy to grab a snack or a cuppa at any time! More details to follow.

    You can Glamp from Monday 30th May (12 noon) – Sunday 5th June (12 noon) Please note you will need to buy an event ticket per person separately, but you do not need to purchase a camping ticket if you have bought a Glamping tent.

    How can I camp with my church?

    When you book your ticket, you can choose to book on with your church in the drop down menu. If your church has opted to be part of a village or hamlet you will automatically be placed with them on the camping site. If your church is not part of a village or hamlet you will be placed in the General Camping area and we cannot guarantee you will be placed with your church as this is a first come, first serve basis.

    Can I light a fire in the campsite?

    You can bring your own safe camping stoves but fire regulations mean that open fires and low level disposable type BBQ’s are not allowed. Waist-high, contained off-the-ground BBQ’s with wind-protecting side panels are permitted.

    Fireworks, smoke canisters, Chinese lanterns and other similar items are not permitted. Any person in possession of such items may be refused admission or ejected.

    How many nights can I camp for?

    All camping tickets include admission to both Big Church Day Out and Wildfires. You can camp for a maximum of 6 nights from Monday 30th May – Sunday 5th June. The campsite must be vacated no later then 12pm Sunday 5th June. 

    I have a trailer tent, where should I camp?

    If it’s a small lightweight trailer tent that can be pulled safely by hand, then you can camp on the main campsite. If it needs motorised support, then your trailer tent will need to be parked in the caravan field. You’ll need to purchase a caravan ticket for the trailer tent.  

    Can I pitch a tent alongside my caravan?

    Unfortunately we aren’t able to allow tents alongside caravans. The only exception to this would be a small 2-3 person tent for dependent children.

    Can I attach an awning to my caravan or motor home?

    This completely depends on space once the majority of caravaners are in. We are expecting the site to be busy but please kindly check with the campsite team if you’re able to set an awning up and they’ll be able to let you know if there’s space. 

    I’m coming in a caravan or motor home, can I camp with my friends who are in tents?

    To keep everyone safe, the campsite is a vehicle-free zone. This means that caravans and campervans will be located in their own section of the campsite. Unfortunately if you have friends camping in tents, you won’t be able to have your caravan or motorhome next to their tent. However, you’re free to roam the campsite so you can go and visit them!

    Do I need camping tickets for my children?

    Everyone (adults, children, disabled carers) camping in the Campsite must have their own camping wristband. Camping tickets can be purchased on our website. 

    I’ve booked my camping ticket, do I need to reserve a space for my tent?

    Camping spots are allocated on arrival, and if you are part of a churches or networks, they will be allocated by your team. Please follow signs when you arrive on the campsite. There are no restrictions on tent sizes. 

    Can I park next to my tent?

    To make everyone on-site as safe as possible, our campsite is vehicle free. This includes the disabled campsite.

    When you arrive at Wildfires, you will be directed into one of our designated car parks for campers. You’ll need to carry your luggage from there to your camping pitch.

    Before finding a place to pitch you’ll need to visit the camping ticket gate to collect your wristbands, pick up a programme and ask any questions. The campsite team will be on hand to direct you and help you to settle in. If you’re registered disabled and need to camp in the disabled campsite please tell the camping team on arrival.

    Please note that arriving later may mean a slightly longer walk to get to the campsite.

    What time can we arrive to camp at Wildfires?

    If you have purchased a ticket for all of Wildfires this also includes admission to the Big Church Day Out on June 3rd – June 4th. When you arrive please follow signs to Wildfires so that you camp throughout both events on the Wildfires campsite. If you just are attending Wildfires the event starts at 9:30am on Tuesday 31st May and will end after the evening meeting on Thursday 2nd June. 

    As all camping tickets also include admission to the Big Church Day Out, you can arrive anytime to camp after 12pm on Monday 30th May whether you are attending the Big Church Day Out or not.
