Camping. Some love it, some hate it! But for the amazing week at Newday it is worth every moment.
You will find out in early July which campsite your group have been allocated. We allocate a generous amount of camping space per person, so there's no need to tell us specifics of what you are bringing to site. We do, however, need to know about any groups you are sharing with or want to camp near, and any communal marquees you are bringing. We send a form to all Group Coordinators nearer the time, to provide this information.
You'll need to make sure everyone in your group brings something to sleep in!
Caravans, motorhomes and campervans are all allowed onsite as well as tents, but we are not able to provide electrical hookups (see other FAQs).
Our 'Zones' are all assigned a colour and number (e.g. Purple 1) which is how you will know where your group will be staying. We send out maps in advance: so you can plan your site. Each Zone has a Zone Host team who will come and introduce themselves when you arrive: they will be based in a marquee in the middle of the colour zone (which will be decked in all kinds of flags, bunting etc. so it stands out) and will be your best first point of call for any help you need.
Tents must be pitched 2m from each other, with cooking tents, caravans and motorhomes 3m away from any other accommodation. We also require tents etc. to be pitched 1.5m from the boundary of your site. These safety distances are very important, and we allocate space with these in mind.
The campsite is well equipped with hard standing toilet blocks, mobile shower units, water and waste points and fire points. These are well spread out throughout the campsite, so no-one should ever have to travel too far. There are also a number of accessible toilets and showers: so please do let us know if someone in your group would benefit from us allocating a site nearer to these.
The campsite is made up of hardstanding roads leading to most of the camping sites, this helps significantly with getting your cars/coaches/vans to where they need to be, and with not getting too muddy! (although wellies are advised!).
