    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 Friday 24th May – Wednesday 30th May. The campsite must be vacated no later then 12pm Thursday 31st May. 

    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 May 23rd and 24th. If you are attending the Big Church Day Out you can arrive anytime from 12pm on Friday 22nd May and 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 Monday 25th May and will end after the evening meeting on Wednesday 27th May. 

    As all camping tickets also include admission to the Big Church Day Out, you can arrive anytime to camp after 12pm on May 22nd whether you are attending the Big Church Day Out or not.
