Events

THE FESTIVAL

Accomodation

If you’re dead posh, or cannot get any shut eye without starched sheets and plumped pillows, there are a number of hotels and B&Bs nearby. Check out LateRooms.com for a random selection of local accomodation…

Freebies

There’ll be more freebies and samples this year than ever before and T-Juice will be running their Free All Day Juice Bar to ensure that your atty never runs dry… …WATCH THIS SPACE FOR MORE FREEBIE NEWS…

The Big Raffle

The world’s biggest big raffle has gotten so big that this year we’re splitting it in two! Prize draws will be held at 2pm and 5:30pm on Saturday. Keep an eye on the Raffle Porn page as more and more glamtastic goodies are added to the humongous haul of swag!

Access

The venue is flat. It is open. There are disabled toilets which work on the Radar key system. There are ramps to the only building that is ever so slightly higher than ground level. Access, as far as reasonably practicable should not be an issue.

Food & Drink

There will be more catering vans with more choice and lower prices. Two outside bars will be provided.

Children & Pets

Since this an outdoor event children and pets (on leads) are welcome.

Cash

There are plenty of FREE cashpoints within easy walking distance – see this map for details.

This is Britain

This is an outside event, in summer, in England… Bring a brolly (and maybe wellies) just in case!

Camping

If you are an outdoorsy type, and want to save a few bob, bring a tent. Your stay is FREE (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Arrival is permitted from 4pm – 9:30pm on Friday, Saturday 9:00am to 9:30pm & Sunday 9:00am until 9:30pm. Stay until 12pm on Monday. Think of the shiny new mod you can get instead of spending money on a hotel room! Plan for electricity NOT being available. Please download and print the Camping Rules.You MUST read these rules prior to camping and should be able to access them whilst on site.

Children is Needed

Last, but most definitely not least: Vapefest has always been free to attend, and will continue to be so, however, this year, we will be raising money for Garry Dibley’s annual Children in Need donation. If you appreciate what we do please consider making a donation. We don’t want your money, but a little might go a long way to making the lives of other people better.
