Campsite will be open from 12noon
on Friday 30th June 2017
If you have a caravan/campervan please take it straight to the campsite. There are low height barriers on all car parks in the town.
Minibus starts at 6pm Friday - see posters in Steward tent for weekend timings
Unfortunately there will be no on-site catering for our 2017 event
There is plenty of late night catering in and around the town and some even have a delivery service so please take a look around when visiting the town centre.
Location- see also our "Getting There" page
Our very large campsite is situated up Primrose Lane just a short(ish) walk from the town centre. From the town hall, travel along Dewsbury Road past the bus station and The Marsh towards Heckmondwike turning right approx. 200 mtrs along the dual carriageway, just past the small industrial estate and up the side of PJ's Gymnasium and Health Club. If on foot or bicycle, the Greenway Route is a perfect way to get into town.
We can accommodate all types of camping units, however we do not have any electric hook up facility. The field is flat and grassed in full. Heavy rain can cause minor flooding but this is a rarity. Car parking spaces are allocated next to your camping unit.
Due to local authority regulations barbecues are NOT allowed on the campsite. Breach of this rule could cause us to lose this valuable facility
Toilets, showers, skip and water bowsers (non-drinking water) will all been arranged. Some bottled drinking water will be available from the Stewards tent. The site will be stewarded with an added security presence 24hrs a day from Friday to Sunday evening It is each individual campers responsibility for the safety and security of their personal belongings.
Could each camping unit please bring a fire bucket (for water)
The festival organisation will provide a mini-bus service over the weekend from the campsite to the Town Hall and on to the Masonic Hall. This is a free service - however we would be pleased to receive donations towards the cost of this via any of the festival collecting boxes. Thank you and have a great weekend.
