General Camping

Yippee! Camping in the general campsite and the family campsite is included with your ticket along with parking your car in the general car parks.

Please read our guidelines for camping.

Family Camping

The Family Camping area is within the main campsite - please ask stewards for directions on arrival. Space is allocated on a first come first served basis. We advise those of you who like late nights and even later lie-ins not to stay in this area. Children are excellent early morning alarms!

All applications are at the discretion of WOMAD and we reserve the right to alter or withdraw arrangements. All applicants will be dealt with on an individual basis.

  • Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
  • The disabled campsite is located in front of the manor house, on the East side of the campsite area. Our experienced campsite manager and team of helpful stewards will be on hand to assist you with any help or issues you may have.
  • Due to increasing numbers of applicants and limited space we do ask that each disabled customer have a maximum of 3 others camping with them (including your personal assistant, if applicable). If you wish to camp in a larger group, you can in any of the public campsites.
  • Due to limited space, 4 person tents will be the largest allowed with no provisions for awnings/extension tents to motor homes, campers/vans or tents. If this does not meet your access requirements please contact us directly.

Bringing campervans into disabled camping

Campervans and caravans are allowed in the disabled campsite but a campervan ticket must be purchased in order to do so. These can only be ordered by calling 0118 960 6060.

Toilets & Showers

There are disabled toilets in the disabled campsite and at locations throughout the arena.

Adapted showers are available in the disabled campsite.

General Assistance at the Festival

At the disabled campsite the staff can answer your questions. They are in radio contact with other staff and will be your main point of contact at the festival.

Caravans, Campervans & Other Live-in Vehicles

Buy Campervan Ticket

  • All persons sleeping in the campervan must hold a valid Weekend ticket and a Thursday Camping ticket per person if using the site on Thursday 24 July.
  • Campervan tickets may be purchased separately from Weekend tickets, e.g. if you want to decide later whether to take your campervan or not, but please note that the standard booking fee will apply per transaction.

Guidelines for the campervan field

If your vehicle does not adhere to the following rules you will not be allowed access into the campervan/caravan field.

  • Your campervan/caravan must have purpose built fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking or washing facilities.
  • Any converted vehicles must clearly be live-in vehicles. Unfortunately, a van with a piece of foam cut to size for a bed and bucket for washing does not qualify. A team of campsite staff and security will check each vehicle's live in facilities. Those in unsuitable vehicles (including unconverted vans) with tickets for the campervan fields will be denied entry and asked to park in the festival car parks. Security patrols will not permit sleeping in any vehicle in these car parks.
  • There is space for one car to be parked beside the caravan if it requires towing. Any other member of your party arriving by car will need to park in the festival car parks.
  • A trailer tent must be purpose built and manufacturer made.
  • All vehicles longer than 7 meters must purchase two campervan/caravan field tickets to cover the extra space required.
  • The pitching of tents with campervans is discouraged for safety reasons, however if your group is too large to fit into your campervan/caravan, you may pitch one small tent immediately beside the vehicle.

The Campervan Ticket charge is to help cover the costs of fire stewarding this area and ensuring that Health & Safety guidelines with regard to petrol containing vehicles are followed.

Meadow Caravan, Campervans & Other Vehicles

Buy Meadow Campervan Ticket

The Meadow Campervan field was introduced in 2010 due to increased demand for Campervan spaces. This area is situated in a beautiful part of the festival site approximately 1km from the main arena.

  • Gives entry to ONE sleep-in vehicle (Please refer to the campervan/caravan and camping guidelines. To be found in the campervan/caravan tab above.)
  • All persons sleeping in the campervan must hold a valid Weekend ticket and a Thursday Camping ticket per person if using the site on Thursday 24 July.
  • Campervan tickets may be purchased separately from Weekend tickets, e.g. if you want to decide later whether to take your campervan or not. Please note that the standard booking fee will apply per transaction.

Please note: The Meadow Camping Field is approximately 1km from the Main Arena.
