15th - 17th May 2020


What Is Glampfest?


25/03/20: Today we announced the postponement of Glampfest, which was scheduled to take place on the 15 – 17th May 2020 at Ivy Bank Campsite, Kirkby Malzeard.

Glampfest will most likely be scheduled to take place later this year on new dates yet to be confirmed (probably September/October), unless events unfold leading to its cancellation.

The world is of course in an unprecedented situation coping with a global pandemic and public health is everyone’s priority right now so we must follow suit.

We know how gutting this news will be for so many as it is for us after all the hard work that goes into prepping for a festival, even a small one like Glampfest. We had so much fun planned for you! Hopefully that fun can just be moved to a new date for a big celebration when this is all over.

Every prebooked attendee with tickets for Glampfest 2020 will be able to use their tickets for the rescheduled event.

We will be in touch when we finalise that date or with further news.

In the meantime, lockdown permitting we are planning a live Facebook broadcast on Saturday 16th May (when Glampfest would have been in full swing) from a party (of three!) in our garden. With any luck you will join us in your own gardens, under glawnings/bell tents/tarps/umbrellas/the open night sky to have a boogie and pretend we’re all together. Hope to see the online version of you there.

We wish you and your loved ones all the best during lockdown. See you on the flipside!

For more information please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
The Glampfest Team

Back by popular demand, Glampfest is the annual charity festival by glawning, celebrating the great outdoors, fab food and family vibes, set against the backdrop of the beautiful North Yorkshire Dales. Every year we put together a weekend to remember that is family friendly and aimed ultimately at your relaxation.  Yoga, beauty treatments, a safe and chilled site make it one of the best festivals around. For our day job we design and sell glamorous driveaway awnings for campervans - check us out here - so you might notice quite a few of these pretty glawnings at our festival.  Come and feast your eyes on their amazing cozy interiors.  You can even hire one for yourself for the weekend from Tipi or Not Tipi! Included in your ticket price you will get some great free activities, funky music, choice stalls and loads of family fun, together with great opportunities to help raise money for our chosen charity (e.g. luxury tombola). Tents, caravans, camper vans and all other portable camping devices are welcome...and dogs too.  This year's theme is peace and love!  Take a trip back to the sixties with our groovy themed fancy dress night on Saturday! 

All happening at Ivy Bank Campsite, Galphay Road, Kirkby Malzeard, Ripon, North Yorks HG4 3SS

Not got anything else booked in or taking the van anywhere. Nothing will compare to Glampfest. You’ve spoiled it for other festivals.

Everything about Glampfest was brilliant; food, drink, entertainment, sunshine, coffee, the company (even the mad ones!), the big cushions!

A fabulous weekend – next one soon please!

Loved everything! Great staff, band, food, drinks. A big thanks to James, his family and team for a top weekend!!

We really enjoyed the whole weekend. There was a really good vibe, lots for the children to do - they have loved it! Great entertainment, drinks were cheap and a great idea to have the food included. Great value for money. Thank you for a great weekend – hope to see you next year!

Mark, Hayley, Thom and Elsie

Great weekend – quick check-in, friendly staff, good value drinks, brilliant music, nice variety at BBQ, wood for sale was helpful, and the setup of the entertainment marquee with cushions was lovely!

The venue, music and food were all fantastic! Loved everything about this festival!

Supporting Local Charities

Glampfest is a charity event with various fundraising activities throughout the weekend to help support the fantastic work of local charities.

This year our chosen charity is Follifoot Park Disabled Riders Group - providing opportunities for people with a wide range of disabilities to enjoy the unique benefits of horse riding and carriage driving.

We are also going to silent auction a Masterpiece Glawning...all will be revealed!.  The proceeds from this will go to CALM (prevention of male suicide) after the sad recent loss of our friend Olli - fellow Glawning Owner and Glampfest goer.
