What Is Glampfest?

Back by popular demand, Glampfest is the annual charity festival by glawning (www.glawning.com) celebrating all things glamping set against the backdrop of the beautiful North Yorkshire Dales. If you love camping in style and being treated like royalty come and join us for a weekend to remember. For our day job we design and sell glamorous driveaway awnings for campervans (check us out at www.glawning.com) so you'll see lots of them at our festival.  Come and feast your eyes on the amazing cozy interiors. Included in your ticket price you will get some great freebies, funky music and loads of family fun, together with great opportunities to help raise money for our chosen charity. Tents, caravans, camper vans and all other portable camping devices are welcome (and dogs too). 

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!!

Pete and Sharon

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!
